For a few weeks each year Casa Cebadillas, the unique culinary experience in the historic village of Torrox Pueblo, Spain opens its kitchen and guest quarters for personalized cooking classes to a small number of guests eager to share in the food, wine, and culture of one of Spain's most diverse and vibrant regions of Andalucia.

Guests cook with wild Mediterranean herbs gathered from the garden, venture down the streets into local household salons for fresh salad greens, fruits and vegetables from local markets, olives from the local groves, and prepare unique Mediterranean, Sephardic, and Moorish-Arabic dishes.

Included is a field trip to a local cortijo to watch the preparation of a meal from a local family. The grand finale is when the students plan and prepare a meal for a group of six locals!

TORROX PUEBLO, Spain -- The new book Dinner for Six at 8:00 by Christopher Carnrick and Arthur Knighton is more than just a book that explores what it means to be American's living in Spain, it is a classic story of two men who embark on one journey, only to find a completely different journey that ignited their passion for food and other cultures.
Dinner for Six at 8:00, and not entirely by accident, capitalizes on a huge wave of "foodies" who are rediscovering the lost art of dinner parties, and Dinner for 6 at 8:00 fits the bill to a "T".
Part journey, part cook book, part party guide, and part do-it-yourself kit, this book hits the mark on every level.
Dinner for Six at 8:00 provides complete details on how to throw twelve themed dinner parties from Casa Cebadillas in Torrox Pueblo, Spain where Christopher and Arthur have created a unique evening for guests from all over the world and host these parties on the beautiful open air deck of their classic Spanish home.
Authors Carnrick and Knighton sold everything and left America for a better life in Spain, but when the dollar crashed, the authors found themselves fighting for their survival as the budget they planned to live on crashed along with the dollar against the Euro. Not to be dissuaded, they regrouped and Dinner for Six at 8:00 is the story of how, in the face of certain doom, they used their American ingenuity to create Casa Cebadillas, a restaurant that features fresh, international flavors that quickly found favor among the locals and to an international clientele as well..
Dinner for Six at 8:00 also seeks to explore the many cultural differences between Americans and Europeans. The authors honor the very attributes that they feel Europeans might scoff at—their sense of drive and purpose and their belief that dreams can and do come true. Meant to be a celebration of a pioneering spirit, Dinner for Six at 8:00 is also an amazing story of how two men created their own American dream in Spain and reignited new pride in their American birthplace.
In Dinner For Six at 8:00, Carnrick and Knighton present 12 different menus that aim to use easily available ingredients and are quick and easy to prepare. Featuring meals from France, Italy, Spain, Asia, Morocco, Polynesia, Arabia, the Caribbean and even the heartland of America, Dinner For Six at 8:00 also includes ideas for table settings, beverages and music to set the mood. Dinner for 6 at 8:00 is a unique blend of story and practical "how-to" at a time when the focus on food is front and center in our culture. Although they are now living their dream abroad, it took this journey to help them discover that there is no place like home.
