Málaga's getting hot as a food destination. We were just down south (in Málaga, Marbella, Sevilla, Jerez…) and we have added some stunning 5-star hotels–including one in a private home in the country–, new tapas bars and Michelin-star restaurants, amazing markets (with eateries right inside the markets), winery visits, cooking classes (our favorite is with a professional restaurant chef), a private visit to the rooftop of the Sevilla Cathedral, private art tours, and more. And the art in Málaga…to die for. Picasso Museum, Pompidou Center, Thyssen Museum, and a branch of the Russian Museum.
A Luxury Travel Blog included Epicurean Ways in their recent article The best culinary tour agents to satisfy your appetite for Andalusia. Here's what they said about Málaga, and about us:
There has been much buzz in the culinary world of late about the emergence of the fine food scene in Andalusia, particularly in Malaga. With eight Michelin stars awarded to restaurants in Malaga province and a total of fifteen across Andalusia, the region is challenging the long standing prominence of the Basque Country and Catalonia. But the top chefs and restaurants of Andalusia still only present a superficial taste of the gastronomic richness of the region. For a deeper, more experiential take on the full and varied culinary scene of Andalusia, try booking an itinerary with one of these specialist operators.
American born Jane Gregg lived for many years in Spain, where the cultural and culinary traditions inspired a life long passion that brings her back multiple times each year. After founding Epicurean Ways in 2007, Jane spent a solid two years intensively traveling Spain to personally establish the necessary network of chefs and specialists, wineries and artisanal producers, and guides and writers that would help to establish and deliver her culinary trips in the country. Epicurean Ways still relies on this network of hand picked specialists to act as guides and contributors for the numerous tours they offer across the Iberian peninsula, having added Portugal trips in 2014.
The Epicurean Ways itineraries are also highly tailored and customised, promising guests a personalised experience no matter the size or tastes of the group. Clients may select preset trips with an established itinerary ready to roll, or pick and choose from activities to create their dream trip. In addition to food and wine related activities, each trip will contain a healthy dose of cultural and active adventures, local access and personal attention from chefs and guides, and the inherent influences of history, art and architecture of the region. A few of the preset Andalusian trips are now accepting reservations, while the tailored experiences can be planned with you at any time.
