The Scintillating Flavors of Seville
In Andalucia, there is a warm light over the ochre-colored fields. It’s a perfect environment for olive trees, grapevines, scrubby oaks and acorn forests. Here, we come to understand the importance of the table and the quality of ingredients that grace the plate, drawing from the richness of local ingredients that we have swooned over for generations: Jamon Iberico, the great sherry wines, brandy and vinegar from the region of Jerez, the Sierra of Huelva where the world´s finest ham is produced from Iberian pigs, tapas, spicy olive oils, fresh seafood … and more.
Seville’s particular style lies not in the grandeur of its buildings or squares, but in the demeanor and the constant display and quest for alegria from its residents. There are more gathering places to imbibe than you can count, easy on the eyes and welcoming. We will get a taste of it all, along with the dramatic history of Seville, Flamenco and the surrounding countryside. During this week we will experience southern Spain in warm Andalucian style, guided in particular by our host Anthony Reid Mora-Figueroa, with his endless joie de vivre. A complete dovetail of likeminded values in food and culture.
