5 h
About this activity
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet your host Juan at Puerta de Purchena and walk over to the 100+ year-old Mercado Central de Almeria for your private market tour. The capital of tomatoes, Almeria is known for its greenhouses and the vegetables it produces. Explore with Juan this covered market with numerous vendors selling a variety of vegetables and seafood, a big part of the local food culture of Almeria. Depending on your menu, you will purchase a few ingredients that you will use during your cooking class after the market tour. In Juan's home kitchen, learn to cook a traditional Spanish meal from recipes that he learned from his mother. Your hands-on cooking class will last 1.5 hours during which you will learn to cook three dishes from scratch. Learn how to make empanadas, a Spanish salad, and paella for lunch. Enjoy cooking before you sit down at the table to share the authentic Spanish meal you helped prepare with Juan. Immerse yourself in local culture over food and drinks with this delightful Spaniard and his wife in their Almeria home, a 2-minute walk from the beach.
