Imagine a lovely morning of cooking in a light-filled Andalus kitchen, with top-of-the-line Neff equipment and a wood-fired oven, sipping a cool glass of local sherry. The classes end with a luxurious lunch of the dishes created by students around a shady table under the garden’s trees. The school operates seasonally, opening January 12 through May 31, and it reopens on October 1st.
“Our cooking school in San Sebastián has experienced growing popularity,” says Jon Warren, Mimo CEO. “We are excited to present a cooking school tailored to the exciting, flavorful cuisine of Andalucía. The cooking experience in the gardens of the hotel is like none other.”
