    We spent a wonderful six days with Annie to celebrate my BIG Birthday. We learned so much about Moroccan food taking back recipes which are useable here at home. We've also been educated in and converted to the ways of sherry which is not, at all, the old lady drink we thought! We stayed in the Africa suite at the Califa which was fantastic - a real treat. Vejer is beautiful with wonderful tapas in which Annie educated us. Annie herself is a star making sure we all learned whilst having a hoot! What an amazing experience - I'd recommend it to anyone with a love of life, food and fun!

    I did the one week course with a most congenial group, staying at the lovely Califa hotel.

    Vejer is a delight, packed with innovative restaurants and bars, Annie is passionate about her subject, especially Sherry in its various forms, tuna in all its parts, and all the wonderful fresh produce. The week was balanced between hands-on classes, visits to markets, bodegas, demonstrations, restaurant visits and a little free time to explore on our own. I would highly recommend Annie B's Spain for all levels of cookery skills. Always something new to learn and experience.

    My husband bought me to a cookery course with Annie B. It was so much more than I expected. The town, Vejer, is breathtakingly beautiful; the cookery school is in a very typical Spanish home with patio, terrace, and pool. Annie is incredibly knowledgeable about Spanish food. I came home feeling very confident about the dishes I was taught and about sherry. I plan to enlighten friends and family over Christmas!

    Our group consisted of 6, including people from England, Wales, Scotland, Australia and Spain. I'm a basic cook, but my sister, who booked this, and my good friend, a trained cook, both had as much fun as I did. I may be basic but my sister is an excellent cook and not one of us were bored. What an amazing experience. Starting out at the market, where we learnt about all types of local fish and crustaceans, followed by a wonderful post market coffee, prior to arriving at Annie B's home for the great cook off.In turns, we took our place in the kitchen; either making cake, gutting fish, or simply weighing ingredients. Not one of us missed out. All the way through, we enjoyed the advice and teachings of Annie, who incorporated fine food with a relevant sherry (I left feeling like a connoisseur of sherry!). On a more serious note, where else can I afford to rub shoulders with such a learned cook? Annie is an expert in her field and I feel very privileged to have spent time with her. Her regional knowledge is outstanding. Her hospitality, 5-star. Her ability to make the day outstanding is a gift. Thank you so much Annie, I loved it.

    My wife and I went to Annie's kitchen in Vejer for a course - lasting a few days- and stayed in the Califa. It was quite outstanding. I developed a real taste for sherry and an expanding waist line which I am working on - but the stars of the show were the fantastic dishes which Annie and Pepi introduced us to. It was great to go to the market to buy fish, some of which were still flapping, fruit and vegetables, and to the butchers for the freshest of produce, which we took home and cooked the same day.The odd night out in local tapas bars went down very well, but sitting on Annie's rooftop terrace while we ate the food we had cooked, accompanied by a wine or sherry and the breathtaking view over Vejer, was quite heavenly. We met some great people too. All in all we can't recommend it enough. Truly a one off! Thank you, Annie!
