Spanish Cooking Class

If you’ve ever hoped to take a cooking class but been put off by the triple-digit price tag, then this class is for you. Led by a team of professional chefs, you and your group will slice, dice, and sautee your way through making a real Spanish paella. While you cook, your instructors will outline the history of world-renowned Spanish cuisine. Then, once you’ve finished in the kitchen, you can all sit down together to enjoy the fruits (or, more accurately, vegetables) of your labor.
