We start at 10.30 and finish between 3.30 and 4.The workshop costs 30 euros, and includes all the ingredients, a delicious lunch in a stunning location and a folder of the recipes to take away. We meet in El Cruce car park, Trapiche at 10.00 a.m. Link: http://www.goo.gl/maps/EOeT
From there we take our own cars up to the farm, a further 10 minutes drive away. For those who prefer not to drive, you can book a lift to the meeting point and back for an extra 3 euros per person.
