Modern Adventure Presents: Heart of Andalucia - September 4-10, 2023. 

You’re standing in a field framed by rugged mountains, the taste of fine Sherry lingering in your mouth. You’re deep in the Spanish countryside savoring a farm-to-table meal alongside a world-class chef, clinking glasses and toasting to all the wonders of Andalucía and southern Spain: acorn-fed Ibérico hams, aromatic goat’s-milk cheese, organic wines, the freshest seafood. Tomorrow, you’ll trade the campo for Seville and the picnic table for a string of bustling tapas bars. And just when you think you’ve experienced it all, a private flamenco performance propels you even further into the magic of the region. You’re experiencing what the Andalusians call alegría: an explosion of food, wine, laughter and joy. This is southern Spain, a place where cultural and culinary traditions are handed down through the centuries—and there’s nothing comparable.

With us are Denver culinary superstars Jen Jasinski and Max Mackissock. Respectively, they’ve racked up some of the most coveted honors in the food world. Max has received multiple best chef and best restaurant accolades in Denver (and NOLA) for his dining concepts including his most recents BarDough and Sofia NOLA. As for Jen, she received the James Beard ‘Best Chef Southwest’ title for her beloved Mediterranean restaurant, Rioja, while racking up accolades for Bistro Vendôme, Stoic & Genuine and Ultreia as well. Together, they are going to show us southern Spain’s best tapas, finest Sherries, and freshest seafood — yes, even sea snails (trust us!).
