Best of Málaga, Jerez, Seville
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 Andalusia and southern Spain: acorn-fed Ibérico hams, aromatic goat’s-milk cheese, complex Sherry and wines, the freshest seafood, and live flamenco that strikes a passionate chord. 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 on this seven-day adventure is Brittanny Anderson, the award-winning chef/owner of Metzger and Brenner Pass in Richmond, Virginia, and Leni in Washington, DC. She’s a two-time James Beard Award semifinalist with a uniquely modern take on Alpine cuisine—think cured meats and traditional cheeses. She’s graced the stages of Iron Chef America and Top Chef and now, she can’t wait to roam the streets of Seville and Málaga savoring tapas and fine Sherries and the freshest seafood. Andalusia with Brittanny will be a master class in culinary inspiration through travel.
If your idea of the perfect getaway is sampling regional Andalusian specialties in the most stunning settings, this trip is for you. We’ll meet vintners and chefs, farmers and cheesemakers. We’ll dance the night away to traditional flamenco, and, of course, eat all the tapas our hearts desire. Experience Andalusian beauty in all its forms, from the grandest palace to the most rustic marketplace.

3 Reasons to Travel with Brittanny Anderson
Brittanny is a two-time James Beard Award semi-finalist and a boss, juggling restaurants in Virginia and Washington DC as well as being the self-proclaimed “delivery girl” for her family’s crabbing business in Chesapeake Bay. Oh, and you might recognize her from shows like Iron Chef and the Portland season of Top Chef. She has an infectious passion and energy, and we are so excited to eat, drink, and laugh alongside Brittanny in southern Spain.
2 Legit 2 Quit
While the rest of us were eating canned tuna sandwiches as a kid, Brittanny’s first taste was a raw slice on a boat, cut by her fisherman father. She ordered her first escargot on her prom date. From sourcing produce directly in the field to butchering her own animals, Brittanny is involved in every single step of putting delicious food on your plate.
Lows & Highs
Brittanny knows how tough it is to succeed as a businesswoman and a chef, and she radiates with warmth and positivity no matter the circumstances. “Being in the restaurant industry is not always easy. But the people and community you serve, they're what keep me going.”
Spain for the Win!
Wine, meat and cheese have special places in Brittanny’s heart. We can’t wait to roam from bar to bar, savoring tapas and fine Sherries and the freshest seafood in the company of a world-class chef who is every bit as excited to be here as you are.
In the heart of Málaga's historic core, this luxurious 18th-century palacio (mansion) is a destination in its own right. The contemporary interior takes inspiration from the palacio’s original construction: beamed ceilings, marble pillars, wrought-iron balconies, and beautiful Moorish cordobanes (decorative leather hangings). The Museo Picasso, Roman theater, cathedral, and Alcazaba are all just around the corner.
Hotel Bodega Tío PepeJerez de la Frontera
The world's first 'Sherry hotel' is housed in a former 19th-century winery in the heart of Jerez’s old quarter. Former workers’ cottages have been transformed into sumptuous guest rooms surrounded by serene gardens and vine-covered courtyards. The hotel terrace has a swanky rooftop pool and bar with deeply satisfying views of Jerez's 17th-century cathedral and Alcazar.
This regal five-star hotel is one of the grandest in Seville. Much of the original 18th-century décor remains, with black-and-white marble floors and elegant garden courtyards, creating a sumptuous backdrop. The rooms have all the comforts you'd expect; the terrace has a small pool and stunning views of central Seville.
