Fresh Cooking Spain is all about the authentic recipes and traditional food within the Spanish culture. These recipes have been passed through generation to generation. Fresh Cooking Spain is a cooking workshop where you can learn and enjoy the Mediterranean food and their culture. There is more to cooking than just being a chef, you need to know your local area and have passion to find local and fresh produce from the market. Learning how to prepare and cook your chosen food with others that share the same passion. Adding a glass of wine with your meal always helps, to in rich the flavours! We hope for good weather so we can sit outside in the terrace, with breath taking views of the Giralda, Church of El Salvador and the Plaza de España towers.
The most important aspect for the company is that you will learn every step, you will learn to cook independently, and if you make a mistake you will have to learn how to fix it, which will enhance you results and will give you a positive result. Once gained these skills you will be able to cook fresh Spanish food. In Fresh Cooking Spain you will have your own workplace, and work area, which includes stools and hobs, for you to maintain.

Fun and enjoyment is essential and we want you to take the recipes you have learnt with us home. The recipes from the Spanish cuisine are yours to show people, taking the recipes wherever you go!
Ana is a culinary and traditional food expert. Born in Valencia, she grew up learning how to make some of Spain's most delicious food with recipes passed from her grandparents to her parents and eventually to her. Ana's mother and father come from two regions of Spain, her mother from Castilla La Mancha and her father from Madrid, both known for different dishes which fascinated her even as a young girl.
As an adult, she travelled across the world with her career in foreign trade. During her travels she met interesting people and discovered different recipes from other cultures. She found herself so curious about the differences of these regions and the foods different cultures eat.
Her passion for food and cultures inspired her to change her career and open her own culinary experience Fresh Cooking Spain, a cooking workshop located in the historic centre of beautiful Seville which offers incredible gastronomic experiences. Fresh Cooking Spain comes with 5-Star Trip Advisor reviews, has been featured on Canal Sur TV, and more.
