Let’s Eat the World? Start in Seville

Let’s Eat the World? What’s in a name? I’m finding out while exploring, cooking, and eating in Seville.

Let’s Eat the World is the third culinary collaboration of Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau and Chef Eric Fraudeau. The dynamic duo created Cook’n With Class in 2007 and Cook’n With Class Uzès in 2015. The new business, Let’s Eat The World,  leads culinary tours —  currently in France and Spain –that include a taste of the foods and the culture of the regions. 

Lucky me, I’ve experienced all three! 

A French Chef in Seville?

If you’re wondering like I did: “How does a French chef know about preparing Spanish food?” There’s a simple answer. Professionally trained chefs are like chemists. They understand the ingredients, techniques, and outcomes of mixing and combining things we eat. A béchamel, for example, is a “mother sauce” that is the starter for countless cream sauces— from a mornay to the binder for Spanish croquetas.

From Croquettes to Flamenco

Chef Eric and Yetunde’s guests devoured Seville’s sights, sounds, and tastes for five days. Both guided tours and time on our own gave me a glimpse of the Andalusian capital that took my breath away more times than I can count.

Flamenco lessons

Now, I can add “Flamenco” to my accomplishments, like speaking French. Rebecca Lutz, an American ex-pat in Seville, made it so much fun to stomp our feet and swish our skirts. It was amazing. She’s passionate about teaching and performing the energetic dance. Unlike Rebecca, I won’t give lessons or show off my dance steps anytime soon.

A Night of Flamenco

After our dancing lesson with Rebecca, we spent the evening at a small neighborhood cafe to watch Flamenco up close and personal. Oh, what a night!


Around and About Seville

Seville blew me away. Everything about the city appealed to me — the architecture, the cityscape — which is low and spread out — the River that runs through the town, and the gorgeous people. It seemed everyone was smiling. Or was that because I was so happy to be there?

Best, we had our own chef to give us all the details.

My favorite meals were prepared in our kitchen and served on the sky terrace.
