How can I tell the difference between Italian and Spanish olive oil? How can I alone create many different tapas? What is REAL Paella and how can I prepare it at home? How did Paella develop in Spain… or DID IT?

These are a few of the mysteries that will be solved during your culinary vacation holiday at Casa Cebadillas. Learn some of the many secrets of traditional Andalucía cuisine. Create delectable and memorable dishes for your friends and family. Enjoy both “hands-on” cooking and class instruction and learn how to interpret and create recipes, handle cooking equipment, understand technical terms and produce delicious food.

Casa Cebadillas uses the very best organic, local, seasonal produce and promotes food that has been grown in a way that is sustainable, environmentally sensitive and supportive of local businesses. The class instructors will actually walk through the village stopping inside locals homes to buy produce freshly harvested that day!

The geography, climate, and numerous cultural historic influences that encompass Spain's extensive history have led to a unique cuisine with literally thousands of recipes and flavors. While a significant portion of Spanish cuisine derives from hundreds of years of Jewish and Moorish tradition, Spain's Christian ethnicity has also been a primary influence and a source of differentiation from other Mediterranean cuisines.

Class Leaders Christopher and Arthur have lived in Torrox for many years and are the creators of Casa Cebadillas, the unique dining experience in Torrox Pueblo. Together they are eager to share with you some of the culinary discoveries they have made in this wonderful part of Andalucia. This holiday provides an in-depth adventure into Andalucian cuisine including field trips to the Olive Co-op, a visit to a local Cortijo, the opportunity for participants to purchase fresh produce from local vendors and prepare daily meals, a full wine tasting guided by Director of the Wine Education Institute and a market trip into the Alpujarras, and the finale is when the participants prepare a meal for six locals!

The one week cooking school Culinary Class in English program includes hands-on cooking sessions led by Christopher Carnrick as well as guided visits to markets, vineyards, shops, and local restaurants. All cooking programs take place in a manner to allow you free time to explore.

Each day’s program offers something different; the prepared menus shared while taking in views of the white village of Torrox and the sea. In the background you can hear the goats and sheep herders in the distance and the smell of fresh roasting local chilies.

You will be given an insider’s guide to the regional production of local olives and oil, cheese and wine as well as and tastings. Our Spanish Wine expert, Steve Ochman, Director of the Wine Education Institute in Sussex and author and contributor to several Spanish Wine magazines will show you how to select the best the region has to offer and how to locate these wines one you arrive back home. All instruction is in English. Recipes are geared for preparation at home once you return to showcase your new skills! Guests are supplied with supplies needed for the week.

For a few weeks each year Casa Cebadillas, the unique culinary experience in the historic village of Torrox Pueblo, Spain opens its kitchen and guest quarters for personalized culinary class to a small number of guests eager to share in the food, wine, and culture of one of Spain's most diverse and vibrant regions of Andalucia.

Guests cook with wild Mediterranean herbs gathered from the garden, venture down the streets into local household salons for fresh salad greens, fruits and vegetables from local markets, olives from the local groves, and prepare unique Mediterranean, Sephardic, and Moorish-Arabic dishes.

Included in your culinary vacation Spain cooking holiday is a field trip to a local cortijo to watch the preparation of a meal from a local family. Your culinary vacation in Spain offers this grand finale: The cooking school students plan and prepare a meal for a group of six locals!
