Go back to Cooking In Andalusian Olive Country
We loved every moment at the “finca.” Clive & Maki were congenial, hospitable, and knowledgeable. The tours to Cordoba and the olive oil factory were interesting, and the cooking was fun and helpful, even to two “old hands” in the kitchen. The accommodations were rustic but appropriate, and the location provided a delightful opportunity to enjoy and experience rural Spain.

Clive and Maki made my one-week experience unforgettable. If you are looking for a unique culinary, cultural, and aesthetic journey, then this is the right program for you. Your charming hosts are not only dedicated to your learning of Spanish cooking, but also have a wealth of knowledge on local culture and international traveling. There is a lot to discover about Andalusian living, and I was certainly inspired throughout this experience.

We enjoyed our trip to the farmhouse completely. Clive, Maki and Cei were gracious hosts. The food was tremendous. We tried a number of foods and dishes for the 1st time and enjoyed them very much. Clive is an excellent chef and instructor. The tours offered as part of the experience were both informative and fun. The trip that included an olive oil tasting was a highlight. The weather was hotter that we expected and the winding roads were a challenge to my wife who can sometimes be bothered by motion sickness. Both were tolerable and would not deter a return visit. Overall it was an excellent experience that we will remember and we would not hesitate to recommend.

Such a wonderful environment to learn. Clive and Maki took such excellent care of us and welcomed us into their family environment. The food was superb and surpassed all of the restaurants in Granada where we spent a few days before traveling onwards. We loved all of the different activities and Clive and Maki were more than willing to accommodate our interests. In particular, my mother wanted to do some horse riding and we were able to juggle the schedule to allow for it. We would definitely recommend this course to other people.

We LOVED this experience. Maki and Clive have a true gift of hospitality. We were fortunate to take the 6 day course, and over the time we were there, they listened to us picking up on things we were interested in, tailoring our experience to our interests. (We spoke once about my interest in local artisans, and the next morning there was a book about Andulusian crafts and artists on the breakfast table, with additonal details about our discussion of the day before.) The cooking classes were well planned and geared to our interest and ability level. Clive is a wealth of knowledge, which he obviously enjoys sharing. He is a natural teacher. They are both a true delight to be around, have a passion for their area, and are eager to pass on thieir knowledge and the love of their home.
We can’t praise Maki and Clive enough. We felt totally spoiled and looked after the entire time we were there. They are amazing people.

What a week we had! The location was perfect, quiet and relaxing among the olive groves. Clive encouraged me to be inspirational, and taught me the importance of the basics. I now realize that the good food does not have to be that complicated. Great holiday, thank you for your advice and support. I will be back again soon.

The fish was so fresh, it was prepared to its best. Very interesting wine list, it is brilliant. Lovely antiquest pieces and love the fluffy bathrobes! We had such a memorable stay.

We felt at home very quickly because of your hospitality, even when we had some rainy days. The floor heating was superb.

It was like staying with friends who knew a lot about cooking, and who were willing to share their knowledge with you. Thanks for the holiday, it has given me more confidence in my cooking, and inspired me to try new things.
