Annette is a native Canadian is multilingual and very much into flamenco. So much so that she moved to Seville permanently. She lives with her boyfriend Jose who is from Soria. Three of us took the “Authentic Spanish Cooking Class and Meal with Locals in a Seville Home” and we had so much fun! We learned a million things about Spanish cooking food from Annette and Jose. From the fact that they use very few spices in Spain, to why gazpacho like soups are so popular in Spain (it’s hot during the summer months and Spanish col soups are very refreshing).
To say this was a typical cooking class would be very misleading. Annette and Jose are wonderful hosts who truly encourage hands on cooking while they instruct (Annett speaks and Jose – not understanding or speaking English, points and gestures). They are both very easy to be around and want you to feel comfortable in their kitchen.
After our class, we all enjoyed the meal we cooked with Annette and Jose, what could be better? We took away very good experiences and memories, plus now that we are home, we have cooked everything we learned from them in our own kitchen. This was an experience we will always remember
If you're in Seville and want a truly unique food and cultural experience, you don't want to miss out on this class.
