What’s On

Solid Salads for a Spanish Summer: Preparation Class + Lunch: Wed. June 6 from 11am to 2:30 or 3pm; cost 20€ per person (drinks not included). Are you tired of the same old salad/salads with your same old ingredients? As we celebrate the approach of summer, join us at Chiki’s, the Chiringuito on the beach, to learn a tip or two about approaching the idea of ‘’a salad’’ with a different twist and exploring novel ways of making a one-dish lunch meal with creativity and pizazz; not forgetting the taste, the visual appeal and the nutrition. After the preparation, we’ll lunch together enjoying the salads we created. Chiki’s exact Location: As you face the sea, Chiki is on the beach to the left of the bridge between Algarrobo and Mezquitilla.
Chiki’s webpage: www.chikibeachclub.com. To register for the Solid Salads Class by Fri. May 30 and/or for further information contact norma: norma2kk @ aol.com. (no spaces). All levels of cooks (or just Gourmands) are welcomed and the more the merrier as we spend a couple of hours in our tropical-like Andalucian paradise!!
