Just out of Malaga city, but world's away in terms of peace and quiet is a large country house offering 'A Cooking Experience.'
Spanish Maite runs cooking days from her childhood home and I joined her for the experience.
We roamed around the grounds, gathered produce and then along with a glass of wine and goat's cheese tapas we prepared local dishes.
On the lovely small flower-filled patio we then enjoyed sitting down and tasting our achievements. A very pleasant experience in good company and beautiful surroundings.
