Mediterranean Cooking Classes

We now arrange recreational holidays incorporating Mediterranean Cooking Classes in an informal open-air kitchen with views of the Marbella coastline. Classes and accommodation are arranged for private booking, staff groups or business groups, teaching an Andulucian and Arabo-Anduluz style of dishes, along the theme of 'Healthy cooking for a healthy life'.

This was created to fill a distinct void in recreational cooking schools in the Marbella area, on the premise that there was a definite need for people to learn how to cook not just the local Andalucian cuisine but also theses dishes from the cultures as Arabo-Andaluz that so greatly influenced the south of Spain.

With a lifetime of cooking experience and entertaining in her house, Rashida Reidel sought to fill the void by teaching how to cook easily and healthily.

It wasn't until all her friends told her to open her doors to the public that she started hosting small and intimate classes at her beachside villa, the ideal setting to learn and create delicious dishes in her 'open air kitchen' overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea.

Why not offer a class to your friends, Family or staff!

Rashida's culinary skill in her wholesome, healthy cooking, is her ability to combine oriental and western flavours...

Using natural food products to produce the Mediterranean food like the exquisitely aromatic couscous and the wide range of colourful, savoury canapes, giving that special, creative personal touch to those well known beautifully decorated tables, prepared for international buffets or any other events.

You are invited to join and enjoy her personalized classes given in a setting of sub-tropical garden with panoramic view of the sea.

At the end of every class you will be able to sit down and enjoy that day's creation with tasty local wine.
