Taste Bud Travels: Supper in Spain

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Rich, aromatic and exciting- all of these words can easily be applied to the cuisine of Spain. With easy access to the bounty of the sea and the treasures of the Pyrenees, Spanish cuisine embraces the best of what each season has to offer.
