Fast Spanish Cooking & Spanish Wine Tasting Class

When you want to eat amazing food and wine without a great deal of time to cook this might be for you.  With Emily, you explore some key ingredients and typical dishes of the Spanish regions, often eaten as tapas, to inspire and transform what you cook at home.  You will start by rustling up a quick Fabada – from the Asturian region on the northern coast of Spain- a stew of chorizo, morcilla and beans, before making a traditional Spanish Tortilla. When you finish Emily demonstrates how to make pan con tomate with servings of manchego, iberico, olives, anchovies or jambon serrano – all to taste. You’ll follow your cooking session with some wines tasting with Sophia, an adventurous and educational wine expert in the field who will teach you the secrets of the perfect matchings between Spanish food and Spanish wines, including Cava and sherry.

This afternoon event is part of our new series of Fast Cooking Courses, but this one with this new addition of wine tasting!

Dishes we will make:

Fabada (stew of chorizo, morcilla and beans)

Spanish tortilla (Spanish omelette) (v)

Pan con tomate (tomato bread, demonstration and tasting) (v) Ⓥ

About Emily

Emily Carey has been teaching people to cook classic and original dishes for over 8 years, driven by her passion to make home cooking more widely accessible.

Her childhood, in a home where good food, especially Mediterranean food was enjoyed, started her off on a journey of discovery and exploration. She developed an eye for good recipes and learning what foods work well together, adding to this a flair for bringing food and people together, and that became the basis for Get Cooking.

With a simple start in 2010, and the opening of an exciting and unique venue in Farsley in 2016, she has continually incorporated fresh ideas into the business.

About Sophia Luckett

Sophia has been running educational and lively wine tasting events around the world for over 5 years. Now settled in Yorkshire, her business, The Drink Talking, has been a huge success for those wanting fun, bright entertainment combined with learning new, as Sophia puts it, ‘wine ninja skills’.

If you love your wine and enjoy learning while you sip, Sophia is your woman!

Sophia is also a qualified educator of the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET).

Reviews and feedback

The dishes we learned were very authentic and is clear the quality of the ingredients were the best (Pete)

I loved it and I have practised the recipes at home and surprised how simple they are to make! (Frances)

The facilities are excellent (think TV Masterchef kitchen with your own work-station) but the atmosphere is friendly and informal – you are made to feel very welcome. Excellent! I will be back! (Pete)
