Paella & Sangría Cooking Experience
Eating Paella and drinking Sangría is a must when visiting Spain. But if on top of that you learn how to cook them, the experience will be superb!
The Paella and Sangría Cooking Experience is divided in 4 steps:
Step 1: Shopping! We meet at the Central Market where we will spend an hour approx. Along with a guide you will buy all the best quality ingridients needed to cook the Paella, the Sangría, but also a few aperitives.
Step 2: 5 minutes walk to the restaurant.
Step 3: Let´s cook! The chef and your guide will explain how to cook the best Paella and Sangria. We will make an Alicante version of Paella with red shrimps and cuttlefish. Be ready to cut, grate, peel, etc. This is a workshop, so be ready to cook.
Step 4: Eat and drink, salud! We will have lunch all together the Paella, Sangria and the aperitifs we have cooked.
Other than the Paella and the Sangría, you will also have traditional hight quality apetitifs which are: Alicante tomato salad (with traditional salted fish), cold meets from Pinoso (a region in Alicante province) and Iberian ham (jamón ibérico). We will also provide you with the paella and sangría recepies, so you can cook it at home.
This is the best gourmet experience to know firsthand the gastronomy and culture of Alicante! Local guide and chef, local comerce, and local products, a perfect match.
