Cooking Class Marbella

North and South Indian Cooking Class

 2.30pm -7.00pm

Jamaicans and Indians often shared one community since arriving in England back in the late 1940’s to 60’s as they both came from their native countries to England as immigrants… The majority of Indians that came to England were from the Gujarat, Punjab and Bangladesh regions of India, so a lot of our ‘Indian food influence’ in Great Britain are from these regions.

The food I will be creating for this class is a mixture of North & South Indian, there are very clear and distinct differences between the north and south Indian foods.

We’re passionate about great food and wine!

The team at The Urban Villa boutique hotel believes that no great holiday, or special event, is complete without wonderful food and we have created a gastronomic hideaway in the mountains around Marbella.

Our talented cook makes delicious cakes for our famous Afternoon Teas which can be enjoyed on our terrace with panoramic views or in our cosy living room with roaring fire in the winter months. These Afternoon Teas are a real taste of Britain with homemade fluffy scones and millionaires’ shortbread – yummy!

She also creates delicious 3-4 course dinners using seasonal, local produce and paired with delicious wines. Guests should let us know when they would like to eat at the hotel, or book the half board or full board options to enjoy all her wonderful dishes.

Don’t worry if you’re not staying, but would like to come and enjoy our gastronomy! You are also welcome for Afternoon Tea and Dinner any time, just make sure to book in advance.

There are also special gourmet events based around the seasons, such as our popular Asparagus Celebration in the spring, Chestnut Festival in the autumn and delicious traditional Christmas dinners in December. The Urban Villa is also the perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day, it’s one of the most romantic settings imaginable and we create an unforgettable night. Bookings are essential and you can treat yourself by combining a special meal with an overnight stay at our small luxury hotel.

Gastronomic Retreats at the Urban Villa

We are designing one week gastronomic packages to allow foodies to stay at the hotel, learn to cook, visit markets and make friends over the stunning dishes you’ll prepare. There will be five days of cooking classes and gastronomic activities and two days to relax and unwind at the hotel so you return home refreshed and relaxed, with loads of great new culinary skills to impress your friends. Please request information on our packages and dates by emailing

In addition to the delicious gastronomy at the hotel, we can also arrange gastronomic excursions to fine dining restaurants in Marbella and visits to local vineyards, please read on to find out more.

Cooking Class and Gastro Meal

Accompany our fantastic cook to the local market in the morning, then head back to the Urban Villa’s kitchen where you will learn how to create some of our signature dishes, before sitting down to enjoy a wonderful lunch on our terrace, accompanied by exceptional wines. You can also choose to skip the market trip and start in the kitchen for the class and lunch, just let us know what suits you best.

Vineyard trip to Ronda

The Bodega/vineyard trip in Ronda can be arranged for a minimum of 8 persons. You will be picked up from the hotel, enjoy a guided tour of the historical town of Ronda and then head to the vineyard for a tour, wine tasting and lunch with the owners of the bodega. Start 09.30, return 16.00. Please contact us for prices and itinerary.


We can organise a local wine expert to come to the hotel for a wine tasting session to explain about 7 different types of local wine, please let us know your group size to request prices.

The wine expert recommends organizing this before lunch or around 5pm to taste the wines on an empty stomach, for the best experience. We can organise a lovely dinner or lunch after this so you and your friends can enjoy the views or the sun setting on the terrace at an additional cost. Please check with us for costs, availability and minimum numbers.

If you are a guest at the hotel then you can fully relax knowing you don’t need to drive after the wine tasting, or we can arrange a taxi back to Marbella.
