What to expect

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. These might include smoky paprika flavours and sweet peppers through to spicy chorizo and rich garlic sauces. All recipes that 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!
