Spanish Cooking Classes

I have often found when dining with visitors to Benidorm, after they taste a certain traditional dish their first words are ”I wish I could cook that”; well you can with Spanish cooking classes. Benidorm receives an average 4 million visitors each year from throughout Europe and indeed, the world and with such a melting pot of nationalities the city offers a superb selection of both local and international cafes and restaurants, as well as countless traditional tapas bars. Visitors or residents in Benidorm who would like to try Spanish cooking classes or Tapas cooking classes can test their culinary skills with the reputable Benidorm Cooking Experience.

Located on Carrer de Júpiter in the city centre, Benidorm Cooking Experience is run by Miriam and Jesus, two Murcians with a passion for traditional Spanish cooking. They offer both Spanish cooking classes and tapas cooking classes, and also have the facilities to cater for private events such as anniversaries, birthdays and corporate events. Their classes are available for people of all skill levels and will provide you with the training and skills to impress your family and friends.
