Spanish Tapas


Join us for this unique cooking ( and eating) experience.  You will be making 5 Traditional Spanish Tapas throughout your class.  Instead of preparing all at once you will be making and enjoying each dish as they are prepared,  Complimentary Sangria (Bring your own Albarino & Riojas !)

Spanish Tapas

 Gambas al Ajillo: Garlic shrimp cooked with olive oil and chili flakes. We will go through how to prepare and cook the shrimp just enough to avoid them from becoming rubbery.

Patatas Bravas: Crispy fried potatoes served with a spicy tomato sauce. Class will learn a lot on how to balance flavors and spices just right. We will also be making a Garlic Aioli with this.

Croquetas de Jamón: Small croquettes made with ham and béchamel sauce, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until crispy. The challenge is to get the béchamel consistency right.

 Albóndigas en Salsa: Meatballs made with ground beef and pork, breadcrumbs, eggs, and spices like paprika and garlic, served in a Tomato Sauce

Ensalada Mixta (Mixed Salad): Fresh greens, tomatoes, onions, and olives, dressed with a simple vinaigrette

The Details:

Our kitchen is designed specifically to be a learning environment. You’ll have a workstation equipped with all the tools and ingredients you’ll need for each recipe, and you’ll have time to enjoy everything you make. We will also provide you with recipes and “at home” instructions for all the menu items.

We will provide you with an apron, but we recommend wearing casual clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit messy in. We ask that you wear flat comfortable shoes. Please do not wear open-toed shoes or sandals. Please pull long hair back.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start time of the class. Once the class has begun, we cannot accommodate late arrivals.
