summer (see the schedule for 2015/2016). Run by Peter and
Kasia whose passion for food and cooking led them to launch
their own retreat in Chiclana de la Frontera.
Your host will be Chef Peter with over fifteen years of experience
of, and a true passion for, Spanish and Mediterranean flavours.
Peter will show you how to cook classic Andalusian tapas,
fish and seafood and meats.
If you are travelling to Andalusia, this private cooking
experience is the perfect excuse to discover the beautiful
area of Chiclana de la Frontera and the coast of Cadiz.
HOLIDAYS IN ANDALUCIA
Peter sources only fresh and seasonal ingredients, mostly
from their own garden and fish and meat from local markets.
The cooking groups are small, usually four to 6 people.
The fun-filled cooking sessions are casual, informative and
very hands-on. Peter's laid-back style and gentle nature will
increase your confidence in cooking and inspire your imagination.
