Buen provecho

The Spanish embrace food as a way of life: something to savour and to spend hours revelling in alongside good company, late into the evening.

Spanish food is so much more than paella, tapas and sangria (though those are great, too).

A cooking holiday in Spain draws you into the depths of Spain's flavours and the complexity of its dishes – and likewise its culture – convincing you that it stands equal to its more popular Italian and French neighbours.

Go learn to expand your knowledge of Spanish flavour combinations and allow your creativity to flourish, understand the complexity of local ingredients and be daring and bold with them, and – most importantly – share stories and a glass of wine with other passionate cooks over a meal you've prepared together.

And with fourth-generation cooks, lifelong Spanish chefs and local artisans showing you the way around the kitchen, you'll return with new skills and satisfied tastebuds.

Where to experience cooking holidays in Spain

Find the freshest ingredients in the enticing food markets of Barcelona on a one-day cooking class or learn the nuances and distinct regional flavours of Basque cooking during a weeklong stay along the alluring Spanish coast in San Sebastian.

Go just to explore one of Spain's diverse regions or combine your Spanish cooking courses with another hobby or passion like horse riding, wine tasting or learning to speak Spanish.

Take to saddle before hitting the kitchen in the infamous Andalucian hills on a horse riding and cookery holiday in Iznajar. Or, wander the romantic, historic streets of Granada on a Spanish language and cookery course in this iconic Spanish city.

Whatever your tastes, you can find a cookery holiday to indulge your inner chef and a group of like-minded people to experience it with. Never settle for ordinary.
