Clive, Maki, and Cei welcomed us into their home and we spent five wonderful days immersed in rural Spain. Clive's cooking lessons were excellent (full of practical tips) and evening meals overlooking the pool and hills covered with olive trees will not be forgotten. We only hope we can treat our friends to paella, flan, asparagus, etc with half the flavor and presentation Clive was able to elicit in classes. Maki provided pleasant transportation to surrounding sites and arranged olive oil and sherry tastings that were fun and informative. We consider this experience a highlight in our years of wanderings- would love to return someday.
