Four of us did the gourmet tapas and wine tasting class. After cooking each recipe, we received a class on the wine to serve and how to "taste" the wine. It was very informative and fun. We ate and drank out on the terrace, which had spectacular views of Seville. When we were finished, they helped get us a cab. The owner, Ana Lopez, was so down-to-earth and gave recipes and tips you can actually use. Their wine expert, Monica, was very knowledgeable and such a sweetheart. I would highly recommend a class for a nice night out!
Ana was incredibly friendly and a very gracious host. She taught me some new techniques and finally unlocked the secret of paella. I loved how willing she was to help me with my Spanish and shared all of the recommendations for tapas in Triana. The location itself was really pretty as well. Take the elevator to the sixth floor and go to the end of the hall. The sign out front is not very big. If you are having trouble finding it, it is near Caixabank.
We did a couples cooking class with Ana and loved it! She is both personable and professional. We wanted to do something different, but still experience Spanish culture and this was the perfect fit. Ana's local knowledge and cooking expertise made this worthwhile. At the end, we had a nice dinner on the terrace with a great rooftop view. We made three different gazpachos and a meat dish. Then, she provided a bottle of wine and an amazing dessert that she prepared separately. A full dinner, actually more than we could eat.
