Culinary activities in our kitchen

Besides our excellent language classes, one of our students’ favourite activities are our cooking workshops.

When we designed our new installations we knew from the start that we wanted to have a large kitchen so we could teach our students the secrets of local Spanish cuisine.

Therefore, in our cooking workshops our students learn, in a practical lesson taught by a professional teacher, how to prepare a wide array of traditional dishes: Spanish omelette; ‘torrijas’, sweet fried bread; ‘huevos rotos’, similar to scrambled eggs; ‘sopa castellana’, a local soup served in winter; ‘gazpacho’, tomato soup typical of summer; paella; Valladolid’s famous ‘tapas’; etc.

Our cooking workshops are organised under demand, ranging from a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 students.

So, when they finish their course in La Casa del Español, our students not only take back with them a better command of the Spanish language, but also better cooking skills… both very useful in life!

As an example, here are some of the delicious recipes you could learn to cook with us:
