Tapas Tours in CORDOBA
Andalucia is justifiably famous for its excellent gastronomic scene. Using first-class ingredients grown throughout the region and caught along its extensive coastline, such as jamon iberico, tomatoes and prawns, cutting-edge dishes are prepared and presented with typically Spanish flair and innovation, although the simple produce - cheese, olives, almonds - are delicious enough to provide superb simple snacks too.
Why go on a tapas tour?
If you'd prefer to let friendly city experts take the lead, and accompany you to Cordoba's best spots, suggesting must-try tapas and the best regional wines, then a tapas tour is for you. Just sit back and enjoy the Andalucian tapeo like a local, without worrying about how to find out-of-the-way restaurants, understand the menu and order at the bar.
How does a tapas tour work?
Normally your tapas host (always an English speaker) will collect you from your hotel or apartment, or if you're staying outside the city centre, you will meet at a central, easy-to-find location. He or she will take you to between two and four bars, always located near each other Tours are usually available either at lunchtime or in the evening.
Your tapas expert will order a selection of small dishes at each stop, explaining each tapa and its history and cultural importance, as well as suggesting wines to match - a local red wine to start, and perhaps Olla de San Anton (pork and lima bean stew) or papas a lo pobre. You may also meet chefs and restaurant owners, and get to see them preparing the day's dishes or produce. The bill for each bar will be included in the price of the tour, so you don't have to worry about paying; dietary specifics can be accommodated.
How long does a tapas tour last? Where do we go?
The tour will typically last between two and four hours, depending on how many bars you visit, with small groups of up to 10 people. Some tours also include visits to some of traditional food markets, where you can enjoy tastings, such as hand-carved jamon de Trevelez from the Alpujarras. Some companies offer tours of specific areas, as well as tours themed around tapas and craft beer, or tapas and flamenco.
This is a most enjoyable way to spend an evening in atmospheric, with a chatty host who will offer an invaluable insider's insight into the city, its history and what's hot on today's menu, from small family-run places to more contemporary venues. Many tours offer a list of recommended restaurants to take away with you, and sometimes a glossy of Spanish food terms too.
