Your Mallorca cooking class begins when you meet your guide at the home of our Paella chef in the beautiful Sierra Tramuntana mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage area famous for its panoramic vistas. It’s here that your local chef, Ramon, will welcome you into his stone house, in a little village hidden in the mountains. If the weather’s nice 9which is frequently is in sunny Mallorca!), we’ll cook outside in the yard; if not, we’ll get cosy indoors and cook in the kitchen. This is the perfect way to discover how Mallorcans live, cook and eat.
Ramon ensures you feel comfortable and gives you some simple tasks as he explains the whole process of cooking a meat paella from start to finish. We prepare all the ingredients with care, and you learn about every step and the reason why each ingredient is included. The paella we will cook uses the most authentic and oldest paella recipe in the world, featuring meat and vegetables (we don’t use pork). If you have any allergies or food requests, please let us know in advance so that we can take care of it. Be prepared to experience every step of the cooking process with all your senses! Smell the delicious aromas, listen to the sizzling, see the colours, touch the textures (we make sure you wash your hands first!), and, best of all, taste the flavours! And of course, we can’t have hungry chefs with all that food around, so as we cook, we also snack on some local tapas paired with a beer or soft drink.
Once it’s all prepared, we dive into the best part: lunch! Wehonourthe delicious results of our efforts with some local Mallorcanwine,and then enjoy a homemade dessert with coffee or tea and chat about your time on the island.
Once it’s all done, you have the afternoon to explore more of the countryside or the surrounding area of the chef house… or take a nap after all that paella!
