After buying the fresh and organic ingredients, you will head to an apartment located next to the Royal Palace where you will participate in a four-hour fun, hands-on Spanish cooking class.
You will be involved from the very first minute on the elaboration of a paella, by preparing all the ingredients and then firing up the gas. This interactive, informative, and extremely appetizing process will teach you everything you need to know about cooking the perfect Spanish paella! While your main dish is simmering away in the pan, you will prepare a gazpacho and some tapas like chorizo with cider, catalan bread and tortilla española.

After the cooking class, you will head to a flamenco show to enjoy a very traditional Spanish performance.
Next day, you will participate in a stunning local olive grove tour, tasting session, and lunch in the countryside, one hour away from Madrid. The tour will be led by Guillermo and Laura - Spain’s newest generation of olive farmers. In 2013, these two biologists took over the family business and embarked on an innovative mission: to connect the local countryside with the city of Madrid and make farming a sustainable way of life once again.
You will depart from Madrid in the morning by bus and head towards the stunning olive grove located in a small town close to Toledo. Once there, you will meet up with Guillermo and Laura who will lead you around their oldest plot and explain the process of creating olive oil: from planting and harvesting to filtering and bottling.
After the walking tour, you will sit down at a shaded table nestled idyllically among the centenarian trees. It is time for the olive oil tasting, where you will have the opportunity to taste some of the oil they have made. There, you get to sample several kinds of olive oil from little blue glass cups. As a further treat, you will be delighted with a special lunch between olive trees with some delicious food and wine that have been locally grown and produced.
At the end of the session, you will be able to distinguish between the generic oils you find in the supermarket against the top quality organic ones.
