Any trip to Spain isn’t complete without spending a lot of time eating tapas or delicious ingredients on sticks… but how many of us come back and cook it at home? Join our tapas cooking class to try your hand at some Spanish-style small plates, from classic tortilla or spicy padron peppers, to flavour-packed sauces.

With our Taste of… classes we want to get you excited about some of the amazing food that’s being cooked all around the world. There’s so much to learn and discover when it comes to regional cuisines, from new flavours to age-old traditions, this is just the starting point for many more kitchen adventures to come.
Our chefs are excited to share some traditional ingredients and flavour combinations to help you master your own tapas dishes and small sharing plates. We're talking padron peppers, saucy chicken thighs and smoky chorizo, these recipes are bursting with flavour and include lots of useful cooking techniques to learn along the way.
There will obviously be plenty to snack on during class and some bits to take home with your recipes – ready for a glass of sangria when you share them with friends!
Morning classes: Start 9.30am and finish 12.30pm
Afternoon classes: Start 1pm and finish 4pm
Arrive up to 30 minutes before your class to check in at reception and there’s no rush at the end – you might be too busy eating your delicious dishes!
Class size: Maximum 10-12 guests, some elements may require working in pairs with a classmate, don’t worry if you’ve come alone – it’s a great way to meet new people and have a laugh
Typical recipes and skills (we’ll cook the best available on the day, so we might surprise you!):
Gordon tries to visit the Academy when he can and loves following what you’re all cooking on social media. Our classes and events are hosted by brilliant chef teachers who will be passing on tips and tricks from Gordon, as well as tons of knowledge from their own experience in restaurants and kitchens around the world.
