I spent Saturday, April 15th, 2017 in FOOD ROOM among people who share the love of both food and cooking. This class was such extraordinary and pleasant experience! I've spend Saturday night in Marbella learning how to cook, eating and communicating with amazing people in a lovely ambiance. It is the best way to spend your time and money for quality dinner, fine liquor and socializing.
Cooking course was Mediterranean Cuisine in Spanish and the star chef of the night was Manu Balanzino.
FOOD ROOM is located in San Pedro del Alcantara, Marbella, Malaga, Guadalmina Alta Commercial Centre, just a few kilometers from Puerto Banus, Marbella. FOOD ROOM offers modern facilities with the most up-to-date equipment.
Phone: 952 636 791
Mediterranean Cuisine Menu by Manu Balanzino in course was:
*Greek yogurt, typical Eastern cheese with fried eggplants Crunchy anchovies marinated in cider and coconut vinaigrette;
*Chicken Pork Pastry, pistachios and Honey;
*Confined Cod (fish) and AOVE (“the virgin olive oil Extra” ) Emulsion;
*Lamb with Pastoril (“especially of land or a farm”) with Dried Fruit.
In case you are wondering what AOVE is here is a definition: ” Olive oil of the highest category is obtained only from olives and only by mechanical procedures, no chemical extrations were made. Its aroma and taste reproduces the taste of the olives of which it is made, and contains all curative and nutritious properties of this excellent natural product. Virgen- Extra oil is the best natural olive juice which can be presented either filtered or “raw”.
Even if you dont speak perfect Spanish you can understand everything and people in Marbella are so international that comuncating with each other is so easy. There were 10 people all from nationalities around the world: Belgiam, American, English, Estonians, Spanish etc.
Once we were finished and the food was served, we ate together around the table, and this was the most satisfying moment for everyone.
This cooking course is meant to be three hours long, but the group was having a lot of fun and it took over 4 hours.
I met new people in Marbella and had incredible Saturday night with Gourmet food and quality drinks.
