What you'll do

Discover with me the secrets to prepare the most authentic PAELLA, in the traditional way, along with a refreshing GAZPACHO of fresh vegetables and extra virgin olive oil. We do not forget the classic SPANISH TORTILLA, a perfect starter to share with friends, with our personal touch. A fun class where we talk about the typical products of Spanish cuisine and how to get the most out of them, with the RECIPES OF MY FAMILY. In addition, we offer you an APERITIF based on local cheeses and sausages, so that you get to know better the products of our land. We offer the class in spanish or english.

It is not a theory class, you will prepare all the ingredients and cook the dishes under my careful supervision. You do not need to know how to cook, I will guide you throughout the process. And the best, the final tasting, where you can taste the prepared dishes and discover the authentic flavors of our traditional cuisine, first-hand.

You will take a good memory of our class, with all the smells and flavors of our traditional cuisine. In addition, we will send you, once the class is over, the manual with the recipes with all kinds of details so that you can cook all the dishes learned at home without problem. Do not miss it!!

I am a professional chef and teacher, owner of my own cooking school where I have taught classes for amateurs and professionals for more than 10 years. My passion is gastronomy, something I share on my blog and in my cooking classes. Born in Malaga, I have known Spanish and Andalusian cuisine since I was a child. I also like to travel, which has expanded my knowledge of the cuisine and cultures of Asia and Europe. I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledge with them.

The highlight of our visit to Malaga! Pepe provided a wonderful cooking class and we were lucky to have it all to ourselves. A private lesson! The paella and every other dish was amazing. Highly recommend.

Based on the high praises from the reviews and the cost for the experience, my family and I were expecting much better. Once we walked in, it was clear that the house/ kitchen area was not clean. At one point we noticed the host take a knife that was used to clean off the mussels back into the drawer without cleaning it. We also noticed that the seafood he brought out for our dish was a paella kit that cost him €6.50. For the price we paid, we were expecting a better source/quality of food.

We had a great time at Pepe’s cooking class preparing some of the best paella I have ever eaten! I’m still dreaming about it. Pepe even took the time to make a special birthday cake to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. 10 stars!

Pepe is very kind and friendly person. He made us to be the heart of the process and guided us through cooking delicious Spanish food. He shared his experiences and some insights on how you can make it taste great. Definitely a must have if you want to know how Spanish food is properly cooked.
