Culinary Vacations (1)
Mike is a retired Chartered Accountant from England, and has held senior directorships of many companies, including finance, renewable energy, and food. He fell in love with sourdough bread in the early 1980's during the first of many trips to San Francisco, and spent many years experimenting with bread recipes from different countries before discovering the "Tartine" recipe which, ironically, was created in San Francisco!
Mike's wife, Lydia, hails from Nigeria and is multi-talented and very resourceful. She has an excellent command of English. She specializes in cakes and pastries but considers her baguettes to be better than Mike's.

"Very fun experience"
I enjoyed my experience learning how to make sourdough bread. Mike and Lydia were excellent instructors and hosts. I felt very welcomed by the family and enjoyed spending time with them.
Mike took me sightseeing one morning which was very enjoyable.
Thank you again for your kindness and hospitality.

"The smell of good bread!"
Mike and Lydia were very knowledgeable instructors and offered excellent hospitality, who made us feel very welcome in their home. The sourdough products we made were delicious. Lydia is an excellent cook who provided us with a variety of delicious meals. The house is very picturesque and has a lovely sun terrace that overlooks the Lecrin Valley.

"The first class experience "
We were just going to learn to bake artisan bread but learned much more than that. Mike and Lydia made us feel like part of their family. Mathew and Lara were fun to share our days with and Lydia fixed great meals with one dinner of Nigerian cooking.

"the dream theme trip"
Sourdough breads and baguettes and croissants! What could be more fun than starting the day with cappuccinos and your own fresh baked bread? I learned how to make the most amazing bread!! All in the tranquil little village of Saleres. Currently there's a bus from the City of Granada but Mike was able to pick me up. Very personable, patient instructors. .
