Cooking Class - Traditional Tapas Fiesta

A tradition held dear across the entire country, tapas pair best with a Spanish fiesta.

In this hands-on class with Chef Ja'Nel, get ready for an authentic fiesta as you create, share and enjoy some of the most popular Spanish tapas plates.

You will begin by preparing three traditional tapas dishes including ensalada de casa, crispy potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce, and gambas al ajillo. Then, Chef Ja'Nel will help you to capture the colorful spirit of Valencia with a beautiful and authentic family-style paella. For dessert, you'll make crema catalana, a rich Spanish custard also known as burnt cream or trinity cream with a hard caramel topping.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
