Talking Tapas private cooking lesson:

The perfect course for someone who loves Spanish tapas, loves to cook or simply enjoys learning a new skill! 

With the Talking Tapas Cooking Course you will spend the morning learning how to cook a range of delicious tapas dishes, which you can then enjoy for your lunch with beautiful views of the Wiltshire countryside! I will also share a little of the history and origin of the dishes, as well as the culture of tapas and how to pronounce them of course! ¡Perfecto!


The course runs from 10am until 1pm, with lunch at the end. The price (below) includes coffee on arrival, recipes to take away and of course the tapas you have made for lunch at the end. Please let me know of any allergies or dietary requirements at the time of booking.

"Talking Tapas is incredible. They do Spanish conversation classes with yummy Tapas and because the Tapas is so incredible, Heather has started Tapas Cookery lessons. I bought my husband a cooking voucher for his birthday and he had an unbelievable introduction to Spanish cooking. Heather’s knowledge and passion for all things Spanish is amazing. You get to pre-select the dishes you want to learn to cook and Heather takes you through it all step by step, with loads of hints and tips along the way. Then you get to enjoy the delicious fruits of your labour enjoying stunning views of the Wiltshire countryside. Incredible experience not to be missed." - Lucy and Guy, July 2019

"Oh boy, what a brilliant way to start the week. I was given a choice of tapas before arriving and Heather is so friendly, professional and passionate that the session absolutely flew by. The weather was glorious too and chatting in the garden whilst enjoying the tapas was almost as good as being in Spain! I'd give more stars if they were available!" (5 stars) - Karen, June 2021

"My husband and I had a brilliant day yesterday making tapas and eating it! All while talking about Spain and Spanish.
Heather is a brilliant teacher and made all the cooking steps easy to follow. She also gave us laminated instructions to take away.
Difficult to find such a normal experience in these times. We felt very comfortable in her lovely kitchen. Great ventilation etc. and due to kitchen design, social distancing was easy." (5 stars) - Deborah, September 2020

"A friend and I booked a morning with Heather making Tapas, we had a great time! The recipes chosen for us to try were perfect, not too tricky and very do-able at home. Heather made it into a very interesting morning with her huge knowledge of all things Spanish, and by the time we were eating the food in her lovely sunny garden, we felt we could have been in Spain!" - Carolyn, July 2017

"A big thank you Heather for a fascinating morning. I hadn’t realised how complex and rich the Spanish flavours were. I have learnt so much!" - Gill, September 2018 

"So much fun making the tapas, and then getting to eat them, delicious! Muchas gracias Talking Tapas!" - Ali, February 2017
