Hola! I'm David. Founder of Pencil & Fork "learning experiences through food". We provide a different approach to learning using food as the vehicle. In our classes and workshops you will learn the topic at the same time you have a culinary experience. Our motto: learn, eat, enjoy and socialize. If you want to learn out of the box these workshops are for you.

I am a chemist certified from Harvard University in Science and Cooking. Working and living in Spain, France, Chile, the US, and UK, gave me the opportunity of learning from diversity.

Topic I teach:

  • Cooking Your Spanish "learn Spanish making tapas"
  • Cooking Your Science "learn Science through molecular gastronomy"

We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirement.

Salud! David

Great teacher, so friendly, approachable and encouraging. Fantastic idea to learn Spanish whilst cooking Tapas. My 11 year old son had 4 lessons and had enough confidence to do a speech in Spanish at his aunts wedding in Spain. We will certainly have more lessons when we can find some time. I recommend it to anyone interested in learning the language. Venue is basic but easy to find and has all it needs.

David is now a regular at The American School in London. He comes once a year to help us improve the work done in the classroom after our students have completed a unit on Food in Spanish. He brings not only his great energy and fantastic teacher expertise, but also everything needed for the hands-on workshop, from food to utensils. By the end of each workshop, our students will have learned how to prepare two tapas, which they also eat, along with a dessert. They will also have reviewed vocabulary related to food, and have practiced how to order food at a restaurant in Spanish.

I attended the molecular gastronomy work shop last night, and it exceeded my expectations completely! David was super helpful and informative. If your an enthusiast like myself, David provided practical information and variations on what you learn in class. I highly recommend this class for anyone interested in upcoming their cooking game with modern techniques and also the food was delicious too! Win win!

While the cooking techniques taught by David covered a range of foundational molecular gastronomy techniques, and has armed me with the knowledge and knowhow to start experimenting on my own, a few of the recipes created could be iterate upon. David was enthusiastic, and his energy permeated the group and would recommend the class, as it gives you the essential first step to creating culinary experiences.

It was a wonderful time, it was just myself and my partner and we were well attended the whole evening. It was a lot of fun and we got to make three different meals. My favourite was the patatas bravas. I would recommend this course to anyone!!

It was engaging although David was a little disorganized. There should be consistency in the language printed for the recipes. It started with English and then Spanish, left the participants to guest the ingredients were. The food created wasn’t palatable and would expect more to it. Nevertheless was an interesting class
