Dine With The Locals: A Culinary Workshop with RafaelaFor local, authentic dining paired with a tour of the city's hidden gems take a cooking workshop from Rafaela. While just a tourist in Spain, I had no idea how much of a local I would feel like after touring and dining with her.
The evening began at the market where Rafaela shared the secrets to choosing quality meats and cheeses—a talent only few possess. After tasting our way through the best hideouts, we ventured back to Rafaela's where we joined to prepare traditional spanish cuisine. Rafaela will share her recipes for anything—from ham, to hake fish, and vanilla custard—but for me, it was all about the experience she shared with us there.
