Mediterranean Cultural and
Culinary Traditions along the Pueblos Blancos

Witness how locally grown and sustainable products are transformed into a cultural tango of meats, wine and fresh produce. The inland Pueblos Blancos (white towns) provide a sunny taste of Spain in the community of Andalusia and Province of Málaga. The culinary traditions of southern Spain are as diverse as its landscape, from fantastic fish and seafood on the coast to delicious sausages, stews and game dishes inland. Eating is a way of life in Spain, and the Pueblos Blancos are literally food obsessed. Meal times are relaxed, social occasions, allowing plenty of time for experiencing the fantastic flavors of the Mediterranean. Spain is famous for its Rioja wine, a full-bodied red wine served slightly chilled. Southern Spain is also famous for its sherries, the most famous being Jerez from Andalusia. Your culinary vacation package includes round-trip airport transfers from the Malaga airport, welcome reception, accommodations with private bath, delicious meals served with house wine, foodie tours, hands-on cooking classes, wine and olive oil tastings and market shopping with your host chef. Some meals will be at the hotel or local restaurants, while others may accompany your cooking classes.
