Return Details

Soho, Málaga, Spain
Meet your chef at the Atarazanas Market in Malaga and set out exploring the food stalls. Wander around the stands of the indoor market as your chef talks about the fresh fruit, vegetables and delicacies on display. Then, with your chef, pick up the best ingredients for making your paella.

Next, stroll to the cooking venue, situated just five minutes’ walk away in the city's arty Soho district. Head into the modern kitchen and enjoy a tasting of delicious local snacks. Sample tidbits such as roasted almonds, Aloreña olives (olives local to Malaga), extra virgin olive oils and tostón de bacalao, a popular delicacy of cateto bread (rustic, thick-crusted bread) topped with salt cod and orange.

Before starting your paella, whizz up a gazpacho, a much-loved Andalucian chilled soup usually made with raw tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. Then, make your paella with step-by-step direction and tips from your chef. Learn about the rice and ingredients to use, and start by making a sofrito base sauce before gradually bringing together your paella ingredients in the pan.

Finally, join your fellow cooks and savor your creations teamed with a beer or regional wine, and followed by fresh fruits. Your experience concludes when you leave the kitchen.

What an amazing experience. The Paella class was one of the highlights of our trip to Malaga. It was held in a beautifully appointed kitchen with plenty of room for all of us to cook. There were about 16 students, our teacher, Ampora, and her assistant Felipe. Ampora doesn't speak English and Felipe translated but that didn't keep her from communicating with us. Her love of cooking and knowledge was apparent throughout. The paella was easy to make and we were given lots of tips to make ours at home turn out. We also made gazpacho, which was also delicious. After creating our masterpieces one paella per two students, we sat down to eat and had a wonderful local white wine to go with it. We also munched on local almonds, roasted and salted, and local olives. This is definitely something to experience while in Malaga. We really loved it!

This class was fantastic! Felipe our guide was extremely knowledgeable, informative and patient with a very good grasp of the English language. Ampara, the chef was also very nice, a master of her craft and great with my ten year old son, trying and succeeding in keeping him interested. The end result, our delicious paella was even better than I was expecting and I can't wait to get back home to try and recreate our masterpiece for family and friends. I would not hesitate, in fact I strongly encourage anyone spending a few days in Malaga to enrol in this course.

This class was a highlight of our trip to Spain! My girls and I had a fabulous time! Our guide Felipe was excellent, and the Spanish chef who worked with us was wonderful! My girls are vegan, and the chef tailored their paella to their vegan diet. We also made gazpacho together. The time at the market was fun, too.
