In our time together, we will make a Spanish tortilla and some gambas al ajillo too. We will prep ingredients and follow easy steps to bring the taste of Spain to your home. We will also learn a bit of Spanish history and culture as expressed though these dishes and help you feel immersed in the beauty and flavor of Spain in the comfort of your home.
On a cold, gray Michigan day in 1997 a group of friends reminisced about April in Seville, Spain over a couple of bottles of Rioja wine… Ahhh, the sun, warmth, friends and family, and the unmistakable excitement as the city celebrates its annual spring bash– la Feria de abril: a week long party of frolic, food, and fun: Flamenco music,the fragrances of orange blossoms, the heat of the Andalucían sun, and the enticing aromas from the simple yet powerful kitchens as they churn out tortilla, paella, and pescaito frito. Fast forward 16 years and that talk of sharing a little bit of Spain became a reality when these friends–Pilar Baron-Hidalgo, Elias Khalil, and me, Naomi, submitted our idea to the 2012 Hatch Detroit contest and won with overwhelming support. Detroit was ready to share the magic of la Feria, and now I will share with you!
