People Love Annie B.

Here’s what they have said

Annie makes cooking and eating delicious food a course requirement. We explored the beautiful town of Vejer, tasted sherry in atmospheric bodegas and sampled fabulous tapas. It was all well organized and felt like an ongoing party instead of a course. If the opportunity to attend one of her classes presents itself jump at it!

Why Vejer de la Frontera

It’s breathtakingly beautiful. Your first glimpse of the town is as a blinding flash of white on a hilltop against the bluest of blue skies. Up close it’s just as easy on the eye, too – a labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets winding its way between quiet squares, churches and handsome historical buildings, it’s a photographer’s dream.
