What People are Saying

“A Great Find”

This cooking class was a highlight of our trip to Malaga and the Costa del Sol”

“More than just a cooking class”

The experience of all experiences at @larosilla! Lynsey, the paella extraordinaire, taught us to make an authentic paella at her fairytale home in Spain’s breathtakingly beautiful countryside”


“Another successful experience”

From the minute we met Lynsey it was like we had been friends forever. We received such a warm welcome to her beautiful casa in the Montes de Malaga, where we spent a fantastic afternoon learning how to make her delicious paella”


“Marvelous private dining”

We have used La Rosilla previously but the standards remain very high indeed and so it is worth reiterating the recommendation. Food was of an extremely high standard, delivered exactly as promised”
