Small bites pack a powerful punch when it comes to the tapa, Spain’s most famous culinary export. At its most basic, a tapa is a small plate, and you can usually order it in a larger version, too—la ración. From the simple and perfect fried fish, the region’s emblematic dish, to the elaborate creations that inspired by avant-garde cuisine, the world of tapas is demystified and made easy and fun in our cooking school in Borough Market.
In this four hour class, you will learn to work with the freshest, most seasonal products to create both traditional and not-so-traditional dishes from Andalucía. Our chefs will provide real insight into the world of tapas, drawing on their expertise that has made Mimo so successful in Sevilla, San Sebastián and Mallorca. You will learn what makes tapas so special and pick up tips and tricks to make them at home. Learn the basics and beyond. This class includes:
instruction with expert chef aperitif & digestif hands-on preparation of tapas with top-quality produce recipes gourmet lunch with wines
Each Tapas Cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings. You will gather around our communal dining table to enjoy what you and your fellow classmates have cooked using your newly acquired knowledge.
