Although the tomato is a relatively new ingredient in Spain (it didn’t arrive until after the New World was discovered), what would Spanish cooking be today without it? Although it took a while to catch hold (people thought it was poisonous at first), its introduction into the Old World completely transformed the way Spaniards cook. In this workshop we will feature tapas style recipes starring the tomato. Recipes might include: pan con tomate (rustic bread with tomato) with Spanish ham, Tomato salad with sherry vinegar, seasonal herbs and cheese, gazpacho, grilled vegetables with Romesco sauce, shrimp with spicy tomato sauce.

Our workshops and courses are developed using fresh, organic, local, seasonal produce, so the recipes in our workshops are planned according to what the market has to offer. Not a difficult task with the bounty of California!
