Rice Cooking Experience


Have you ever tried “arroz a banda” or the typical “arroz negro”(black rice)? Both are specialities of Santa Pola and now you not only will have the possibility of trying these delicious dishes but also cooking them yourself. Join us in this unique experience and learn how to cook one of the best rice dishes of the planet!

We will meet at 10am at the Tourist Information Office (Centre) next to the City Hall and will start our visit.

First we will do a gentle walk while the tour guide tells you a little bit about traditional dishes in Santa Pola, the culture of fishing and other interesting things. After this, we will go to the restaurant.


Ready to cook?

The Chef will guide us into cooking one of their best rice specialities. We have a small paella pan for every 2 people, so we cook in twos.

After the lesson and once the rice dish is ready to be served, we will continue to the best part of the tour; to try your cooking. We will have the rice dish together with some salad, bread and drinks.

Now you are ready to try it at home and show off with your friends & relatives!

We hope you have enjoyed and learnt a lot about Santa Pola´s cuisine.
