Private masterclass on cooking Valencian mussels at Casa Montaña
In Spanish, a mussel is a “mejillón”, but in Valencia, they call them “clóchinas”, meaning the specific Mediterranean mussel. Around town you can find a series of mussel temples where these delicious treasures are steamed and served with a slice of lemon. But the secret of preparing a great Valencian “clóchina” is known to the lucky few. And you are one of them.
You’re going to find out for yourself all the secrets and tricks of cooking these fantastic delicacies in a unique and exclusive session prepared for you alone.
Your appointment is at “Casa Montaña”, founded in 1836, and one of the most picturesque and traditional eating spots in Valencia, with lots of international fame, as reported in countless publications on food and travel. This is a meeting place for the savvy and the chic from town, and you can find distinguished guests and celebrities from the fields of politics, literature and art.
After learning all about mussels, you can taste a home-made vermouth and some appetizers, such as Iberian ham and Spanish olives, in amongst the centuries-old barrels lining the walls.
And if you want to enhance your skills even more, you can also sign up for a course in Iberian ham slicing and wine tasting, right here in the same place.
Learning is always a pleasure when you’re learning something uplifting. Are you ready for it?
