Malaga’s coming into its own as a culinary destination and a tour with Spain Food Sherpas takes foodies off the beaten track to discover everything from traditional crisp makers to the best churros (doughnuts) and hidden restaurants. From the buzzing Mercado Atarazanas (the main food market), to the specialist ultramarinos (traditional, family grocery stores), visitors learn about – and try – the best local fare.

Highlights might include a picnic of the best Iberian jamón, cheese and local wine in the courtyard of the 17th-century Cardinal’s House now a high-end antique shop, or a stop at La Recova a ceramics and secondhand shop with a cafe where locals linger over breakfasts of bread, tomatoes, crema (delicious flavored lard) spreads and coffee.

There’s tasty tapas too – olives marinated with oranges and lemons, cheese with homemade marmalade and salchichón salami, great paired with local Moscatel wine.

But not only traditional tapas reflect the local gastronomy, but also the ones with a modern twist.  A good example is the mouth-watering Pil- Pil Prawns Wrap at the scrumptious Uvedoble Tavern.

Throughout the whole tour you will be guided by a member of their team, a so-called Food Sherpa, who is an expert in their culture and has intimate knowledge of Malaga’s best-kept foodie secrets.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the best places to eat in Malaga and to discover hidden gems that even locals don’t know about!
