What you'll do

In my cookery classes I combine know-how with food chat plus fine food in the process. A selection of classes covering Catalan, Spanish and wider Med cooking. There´s something for everyone - whatever your culinary talents.

In our 4-hour morning classes, firstly a freshly squeezed juice and tortilla as we say hello and you get over the shock of my tattoos!

Being based in Sitges' perfect- sized indoor market, we'll step out and take a special tour for 30 minutes. I buy almost all my produce here and I've known many of the traders for years.

Then down to work as we knock out the dishes. Not the sort of class where we all have a chopping board, a knife and an onion. Not really my style. Sure, everyone can help and we'll move at a pace to suit you. Most of all I want to inspire you. We'll have some fun and, of course, some fab food in the process.

Dish by dish we create the perfect summer meal for family and friends, platters for sharing, making the most of seasonal market produce and Catalan traditional recipes. All this as we chat about the ingredients, techniques and life by this stretch of the Med. Sometimes the odd dish changes, but this is how our Terrace menu usually looks: Xato de Sitges (Garraf coast salad), Broad Bean Salad, Escalivada (char grilled veg understatement!), Braised Artichokes, Rabbit filled Courgettes, Pan con Tomate, Seafood Fideua. dessert.

The former marketing guy immersed in London dining (on expenses). So in love with cooking and food, I later trained for 2 years to become a chef. Then came the private dining restaurant and a specialist restaurant marketing consultancy. For the last 25 years I've worked in small and large kitchens, maybe setting up a new menu or concept; sometimes running the operation. Brought up in the Med, I later knew that simply travelling around its shores wouldn't be enough to satisfy my love for its lifestyle and especially its food. So in 2002 I moved to Sitges. Sometimes I can be found working in London, but my home and heart is here cooking by the Med.
For as long as I can remember I've been asked for my recipes and ideas, engaging in food chat. I could not ask for more than my cookery school to be in the town´s central market.

Where you'll be

Most of my classes are based in Sitges' air conditioned indoor market. That's where our purpose built demo kitchen is. If we run out of something...no problem. This is true market cooking. We´ll do a market tour before we start cooking plus a chance to take a 15 minute break and walk around the market again, maybe take a coffee.
