Gastronomy
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!

Wine tasting with La Casa del Español
La Casa del Español also offers the possibility to organise wine-tasting sessions with professional sommeliers. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know the excellent range of wines produced in the Province of Valladolid. It is worth mentioning that some of the wines in our area are well known worldwide, the Designations of Origin of Ribera de Duero, Rueda, Cigales, Toro, among others, are rather famous. We have great variety of wine: reds, whites, rosés, sparkling and sweet wines!
Our wine tasting sessions are organised under demand, ranging from a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 students per level. Depending on the number of participants the session would either take place in our own facilities or somewhere designed for that purpose.
