Full Day (Duration: 5hrs - 6hrs approx.)
Savoring the secrets of sea by preparing seafood dishes with a Galician Chef
Our foodie tour leaves from Vigo, a vibrant city on the banks of the Ria de Vigo one of the important bays in the Rias Baixas. and in fact the largest fishing port in the World! Rich in history from the famous battle of Rande on Oct, 23rd, 1702 and rich in seafood being the largest fishing port in Europe and an important producer of shellfish farmed in the bay especially noted the Mussels which are a Denomination of Origin Mexillon de Galicia (Mussels of Galicia). It is the largest city in Galicia with just about 300,000 (297,355 to be exact) in population.
We start off by taking a short ferry boat ride (20 mins.) from the port of Vigo to the village of Moaña on the other side of the bay on the peninsula of O Morrazo. On the boat ride you will get great views of Vigo city from the sea and as well the Cies Islands and the Rande Bridge. Arriving in Moaña we will walk along the promenade of the town to the *market and take a look what has been caught that morning (*Market tour included only on morning/lunch classes, afternoon classes and on a Sunday or holiday when the market is closed we will be substituted with a short walk around the nautical port of Vigo). Then we make our way to a small cooking school for a hands-on cooking class with a Galician Chef. Learn to prepare a 3 course meal of Galician Gastronomy based on local products of the area primarily from the sea eg. Mussel of a local Mussel farmer in Moaña, Clams, small sardines, etc...
After the class you will eat what you have created while chatting with our chef and guide enjoying views of the bay from the dinning room. We can not forget to mention that during the class and with each course you will have Galician wines... Albariño from the D.O. Rias Baixas and as well for those who like red they can try the Mencia wines of the D.O. Ribeira Sacra. With dessert you will try the Galician Aguardiente (translated to fire water!) liqueurs.
A great end to a memorable foodie experience on the Ria de Vigo, Rias Baixas.
