What you'll do

I will help you open your senses to the centuries-old magic of Granada.
The Nazari kingdom of Granada founded in 1238 by the Nazari noble Mohamed-Ben-Nazar. Rich and diverse cuisine. Arab tradition enriched by the History of Granada with a long and historic pastry tradition. Ancestral recipes mixed with those of other cultures and traditions, transmitted from grandparents to parents and children.
I will show you how to get started and we will get down to work to make an Arabic sweet, dreams of the Generalife, a family recipe that has changed little, but still with its original texture, creamy mixture and intense almond flavor, nuts, Moruna raisins, cinnamon ... make each bite an authentic experience for the senses.
While they are baked, we will prepare a tea flavored tales of the Alhambra and then enjoy the tasting of sweets.

Hola me llamo Nuria pero todos me conocen por Awita, amante de la buena cocina, fiel a mis tradiciones, leal a mi trabajo y a los amigos.
Me críe con mis abuelos entre fogones en un pequeño restaurante del Albayzin de Granada, mi abuela me llamaba Awita porque siempre tenia las manos en la masa, me dejaba amasar la harina para los dulces que preparaba a sus clientes.
De ahí mi amor por la cocina y la elaboración de los dulces.

This was an amazing experience! Nuria taught us a traditional recipe to share with our friends, and over a comforting cup of tea, she taught us about Granada and all the great places to see. I would go back again! We had to make a slight change to our reservation, and she was very accommodating when another couple could not attend. Nuria is amazing and I highly recommend this experience!

Nuria was such a wonderful host. She was very friendly and animated, and was interested in learning about us. The sweets were delicious and the recipe was easy to follow. We got to take the sweets home and the recipe. She also sat with us and told us all about where we could visit in Granada. Truly a great Granada experience. Highly recommended!

An absolutely amazing experience! BOOK NOW! Nuria makes you feel welcome from the second you walk in and you won’t stop learning and smiling for the whole two hours. The desserts are DELICIOUS! Like nothing you’ll have tried or can find in stores. And healthy if you’re concerned about stuff like that. FOR COVID: Nuria was very aware. Distance was maintained and masks were mandatory! You’re washing your hands a lot so it felt incredibly safe.
