Learn some of Spain's culinary secrets

Private Paella and Sangria Classes

Our experience takes place in a well-known, family run restaurant. It closes its doors to the public and opens its kitchen and dining room especially for our private paella and sangria classes.

The restaurant is located in the 16th century Palacio del Príncipe de Anglona. Situated on the medieval Plaza de la Paja, the building harbours centuries of secrets within its walls. One of these is the Jardínes del Príncipe de Anglona: a little green jewel garden nestled inside high walls, rendering it invisible from the street.

Inside the restaurant, we enter Juan Antonio and xx’s kitchen for our private paella and sangria classes. xx will teach us how to make paella using her family’s recipe, refined to perfection over the centuries. You will earn the secret for making the best paella broth.

When we are finished with the paella, Juan Antonio will teach us how to make a proper sangria. We will learn how the best kind of fruit to use, how long to soak it and the right kind of vermouth to add to give it an extra little kick.
