Cooking Class: Crafting Authentic Eats From Spain

Enjoy a traditional Spanish meal in this engaging cooking class. Chef Derrick will guide you in crafting classic dishes using authentic culinary techniques with fresh herbs and ingredients. Begin by toasting bread and layering it with an herby mixture of tomatoes, olives, anchovies and capers. 

Next, prepare a popular dish in Spain: succulent prawns simmered in olive oil and garlic. Create a traditional and hearty rice-based paella overflowing with chicken, chorizo and seafood. Then, braise chicken in a savory almond and saffron sauce. End your meal by indulging in a creamy Spanish rice pudding.
