I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Andalucian Cooking Tour

andalucia cooking tourTour Description

The tour takes place in La Sierra de Aracena, famous for Jamón Serrano and Chestnut forests, stunning natural beauty and total tranquility. This unique 5 day tour will highlight Spanish cooking, walking through unspoiled nature and exploring small little pueblos dotted across Andalucia. The house where we will be based is a marvel in itself; a true credit to its adventurous and visionary owners who built it from scratch over 30 years ago. It sits atop a crest like a jewel in a crown and enjoys immense peace and quiet. The house will become one of your fondest memories of this holiday, alongside our chef who is gourmet trained and is both engaging and entertaining! Produce will be sourced locally, as will Iberian Pork, mountain lamb, and game when available. In short, this is not a tour to miss out on!
