In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Maggie teaches you how to prepare Spain’s most social dishes: tapas and paella. Traditional tapas are meant to offer a variety of flavors and textures to be enjoyed while socializing with good company.
You will begin with three classic tapas including tangy tomato bruschetta, crisp croquetas de jamón, and a Spanish tortilla with potatoes, eggs and onion. Then, the chef will guide you as you craft authentic Spanish paella followed by crunchy cinnamon-sugar coated churros for dessert.
