Our foodie adventure begins at the Metropol Parasol, the biggest wooden structure in the world. An old and traditional city like Sevilla is full of contrasts and this modern leisure space certainly contrasts with the Baroque and Gothic architecture that the city is known for.
Our first stop will be a gourmet wine shop in a very old building where we’ll focus on sherry. It wasn’t so long ago that sherry was considered a Christmas tipple for Grandma but in Southern Spain, it’s been a popular aperitif for centuries. And now the world’s hippest bars are finally starting to catch up, with more and more stocking a discerning fortified wine collection. Seville is less than 100 kilometres from Spain’s sherry triangle and, along with sweet vermouth, the Sevillians have really taken this tipple to their hearts. Together we’ll try two different types of sherry, paired with local gourmet delights such as manchego cheese and Iberian ham and discuss the production process.
Strolling the romantic cobblestone streets again, we’ll make our way towards Soho Benita, a trendy shopping area that’s popular with local artists showing off their latest masterpieces. It’s here that we will find the oldest bar in Sevilla, which opened all the way back in 1670. The interior remains relatively untouched by modernity, so it’s a great place to come and soak up some proper Sevillian history and try traditional local dishes. We will taste an unusual local red wine (from the province of Andalucia) paired with our favourite classic tapas dishes, surrounded by antiquated liquor and wine bottles (perfect for those authentic holiday snaps!)
A picturesque 10-minute walk will take us to our next culinary pitstop; a local bar with an interesting selling point: it claims to be the quietest establishment in town. Find out why as we devour a tapas feast of codfish, prawns and montaditos, all washed down with a glass of the house wine.
Our last culinary experience of the day comes courtesy of a modern and elegant restaurant close to the Feria market, which boasts exciting fusion cuisine alongside a huge variety of Spanish wines. Try one last savoury dish or opt for a sumptuous dessert instead, alongside one final drink.
