About Us
I, Sergio Rifugio, will be your Host and Chef. I am Italian born but has
spent the last 10 years in Andalucía, Spain, in the Malaga/Marbella area
working in a variety of top class establishments including the running
of the Food & Beverage department for four different luxury complex
on the Costa del Sol.
I am also very proud to let you know that Cooking Holiday Spain is now
part of the Tourist Board and convention Bureau of Costa del Sol,
becoming the first "legal" company in Andalucia specialized in
culinary, winery and gastronomic activities.
Cooking Holiday Spain has grown out of the need to provide a more personal
& private service for the most demanding customers. one far different from
those encountered from large coach companies, therefore, we are a company
believing in personalised, quality and hands-on service to all our clients
insuring our promises are kept! Thus, more often than not, tourists come as
clients and leave as part of the family!
Our high quality personalized gastronomic services will bring you closer to a
world of Andalucian flavours, which are healthily Mediterranean and
innovatively creative.
I am sure that there will be something for everyone here, and the enjoyment I got
from planning and producing these memorable holidays will be shared by you too.

Our Daily Culinary Excursions
JEREZ AND IT’S HISTORY
(Private Excursion min 2 people, max 8)
To speak of Jerez de La Frontera is to speak of it’s sherry
wines which have formed an integral part of it’s culture, art
forms and customs since 1100 BC, and with this in mind
we wish to immerse you in its historical trademarks.
We will start the tour from the Cadiz area first stopping at
the largest sherry cellar in Europe. Here you will be treated
to a show of equestrian mastery from the Jerez Riding
School (the progenitors of the world recognised Spanish
Riding School in Vienna), followed by a detailed tour of
the facilities. Sample the various sherry wines with some
appetizers and learn the famous art of “Venenciar” – how
to correctly pour the sherry into a glass. To end the visit
you will have the opportunity to purchase any of the wines
including their rarest Last Bottles at the bodega.
Following this unique experience you will be transported
to the Puerto de Santa Maria (St. Mary’s Port) to one of
the oldest restaurants in the Jerez area where you can eat
some of the most exotic selective fish and seafood dishes
freshly caught that very morning.
Jerez is one of Spains’s largest contributors of Andalucian
culture on an international scale and this tour will bring the
equestrian experience, seafood delights and sherry wines in
unison for you to savour forever
ARTESIAN OLIVE OIL & ORGANIC WINE
EXCURSION
(Private Excursion min 2 people, max 8)
Get to know the real Andalucia far away from the busy Costa
de Sol and Tourist Resorts.
Our trip will take you up the mountainous road by the “Parque
Nacional de Grazalema boasting beautiful rolling forest hills
and mountains.
Our first stop will be a historic olive oil mill dating back to the
1700’s and nestled between the “Sierra of Grazalema”(Cadiz)
and “Sierra de Las Nieves” (Malaga), it is one of the last
surviving mills to produce olive oil the artisan ways of old and
whose main attraction must be Juan, the head family member
and owner of the mill. Once the tour is finished you will be
able to sample his oil with some country bread and a glass of
his home made wine and even has the opportunity to purchase
some of his oil and olive oil hand cream which works wonders!
Next we will depart for a local Organic Vineyard 20 minutes
away where you will have a tour of the facilities and the learn
the differences of this laborious preparation and attention to
detail to ensure the highest quality of grape used for the
organic winemaking. Lunch will follow where you can soak in
the harmonious surroundings and sample the various wines on
offer. We conclude with a brief walk through the natural
gardens.
If you are able to leave after this wholesome experience where
a nice siesta is in order, an optional stop in Ronda is possible
on the way back to the resort. Here you will have a brief tour
of the city visiting the famous “Puente Nuevo” (new bridge);
the symbol and soul of the city, the bull ring (one of the oldest
in Andalucia) and the main street for a spot of shopping if so

A thoroughly fulfilling day you will not forget.

While you are here……
The Costa del Sol is a unique and cosmopolitan world,
which will fascinate your senses and excite your emotions. Sun and beaches on the shores of the Mediterranean, first
class golf courses on the Costa del Golf, an excellent venue
for the most important congresses and conventions, an
exceptional hotel infrastructure, a rich culture and fine
gastronomy, plus a varied complementary offer.
The Costa del Sol is a land of contrasts, from cities full of life with a unique historical past and grand architecture, to
sleepy little villages and crumbling cortijos where goats
graze and campesinos toil in the fields. The countrysideis
just as diverse. The magnificent Sierra Nevada and other
snow capped mountains tower over verdant valleys. Rivers
tumble through gorges and snake across the landscape
creating fertile plains, but there are also sierras that are
barren and land that is parched and desolate. And what’s
more, an extraordinary climate with 321 days of sunshine
in a year.

Spain with the cities of Ronda, Seville, Cordoba and Granada all

village there is a festival of some kind. In all of Andalucia
there are bullfighting, flamenco, music and wine festivals

festivals.

The cooking class is great fun and Sergio was excellent.
Make sure in your cooking class you get him to prepare
his famous Pasta with fresh clams and pesto sauce and
the mixture of Tapas. I have tried to do them at home
and I have become now very popular among all my
friends and family. Thank you for the great tips you gave
us during the class. We had a fantastic time.
Mark, Montreal
My husband and I were very lucky to find Sergio’s
Mediterranean cooking class on the web. I read positive
reviews about his cooking skills and decided to give it a
try. The food prepared was simple but very tasty. He
made it look extremely easy to prepare all those dishes.
George, my husband doesn’t stop in asking me to make
the selection of tapas and the chocolate & almond
tart!!!!
