Everyone knows about the Mediterranean diet with its rich variety, natural ingredients, delicious flavours and great benefits to your health, and this is, and has always been, the major influence on Andalusian cuisine, and the many local variations found here in Cordoba.
This course will teach you all about the best-known dishes, how to prepare them yourself, the ingredients, the history behind each dish and the health benefits they bring. The students take an active part in the cooking under the expert guidance of a qualified cook, who goes through the recipe and the ingredients step by step, adding their own top tips, before everyone finally tastes the dishes prepared that day, washed down with a good bottle of wine.
