Our Andalusia Cooking Vacations
Cooking Vacations In Andalusia
Andalusia and its capital city Seville are among the most quintessential parts of Spain, home of such Spanish staples as tapas, flamenco and bullfighting. Much of the region’s charm arises from the “Moorish” influence, which is prevalent in the region’s architecture (including Córdoba’s Great Mosque and Granada’s world-famous Alhambra Palace), food, and design.
Having been a crossroads for other civilizations, including the Greeks, Romans, Vandals and Castilians, Andalusia is one of Spain’s most fascinating regions. Today Andalusia is predominantly an agricultural region, including in the production of grapes for the famous sherry wines that you will explore on our Andalusia wine tours. Alls of this makes it an ideal locale for a Spanish culinary vacation!
Home to some of the finest olive oils, ham, and sherry in Europe, it is a culinary traveler’s delight. In addition to the wonderful food that you will taste (and cook yourself!) and the wines that you will savor on our Andalusia wine tasting tours, you will fine a very temperate climate with mild winters and hot summers – the makings of a truly ideal Mediterranean cooking holiday. The Andalusian Costa del Sol offers miles of beaches, while the interior is mountainous and largely populated by olive and almond groves.
The Mediterranean diet of Andalusia (or Andalucia if you use the Spanish spelling) pair perfectly with the wines of the region, which you will taste on our Andalucia wine tours. The area is known for its fortified sherry wines, but you will also discover wonderful red and white wines during our wine tastings in Andalusia, including from the Montilla-Moriles and Sierras de Málaga areas, both popular destinations for Andalusia wine tours.
