Moorish & Arabic Cooking Class

Everywhere one looks in Sevilla and the south, there are traces of an ancient people and culture that has been adapted and evolved over the centuries: the Moors.  This traveling and migrating people left many delicious gifts in their wake, from rice to almonds. Join us in this cooking class where we will pay homage to the old Moorish kingdom of Al-Ándalus, the birthplace of Andalucía and the true cultural and culinary origin.

Learn how to use the seductive spices and heady aromas that permeate the Moorish cuisine. This ancient culture lays claim to some of the area’s most famous (and fragrant) dishes.  Learn to build these Spanish and North African flavors,  and culminate in a feast fit for kings in our Moorish & Arabic Cooking Class.  This class includes:

   bilingual instruction with the chefs
    aperitif & digestif
    hands-on preparation of Arabic & Moorish dishes with top-quality produce
    gourmet lunch with wines

Each Mimo cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings.  You will gather around our hand-made copper tile table to enjoy what you and your fellow classmates have created using your newly acquired techniques.
