Enrich your senses in the Andalusia’s famous restaurants, where you can enjoy and taste the best tapas, while learning about Andalusian tradition, innovation, and quality. This culinary tour Includes your guide, two tapas and two drinks per person.
Your tour begins at the Plaza del Arenal, a central point where you meet your guide. After a brief introduction, walk the historic center of Jerez, as your guide begins to explain the fascinating history of the Andalusia and its unique culinary culture, including the origins of the Andalusian dishes.
On your culinary journey, visit two bars typical of the city and savor a tapa at each site. You also won’t want to miss a glass of the famous sherry. Specific dishes vary depending on the day and season, but some examples include ajo caliente (hot garlic), la cola de toro (oxtail stew), el puchero (garbanzo stew), los chicharrones (pork rinds), la berza (cabbage), los alcauciles (Arabic Word for alcachofas, or artichokes) and the well-known riñones al jerez (kidney in sherry sauce). These ingredients can be more commonly found in bygone days, many times governed by the shortages of products. Learn about how these dishes vary from town to town. For example, in Chiclana, chicharrones are more like carne mechada, a stuffed roll of tenderloin, and are served in fine slices.
In many of recipes, wine cannot be left out as an ingredient. It is available in so many varieties, and there is usually an ideal type for each recipe, making it an indispensable part of Jerez’ gastronomy. At the end of your tour, your guide will lead you back to the original start point and say farewell.
