We will open the doors of our flat, situated inside an antique palace which is part of the URBAN HERITAGE protected by the town hall. It have 2 courtyards: one with the typical Sevillian orange trees and the other with the image of the Virgin and the Christ. Our house belongs to a well known impressionist SPANISH ARTIST's, PEPIN RICO (who in 1986 exposed in Pompidou in Paris), so you will get to see his paintings. He's popular for his portraits of Christ and his sculptures of bulls, which is why the folkloric Seville fell in love with his work. Pepin, who also was a an ebanista (wood artist), designed all the furniture of hour home, turning his house (our home!) into a particular and unique space. Rico, the artist's son, is a professional chef (with experience in MICHELIN STAR restaurants like Martin Berasategui) that will prepare a GOURMET menu where you will have the chance to taste the best of the Andalusian Gastronomy, but with his special twist (because his tapas are not the same than restaurants). He will explain you the traditional recipes and share his secrets with you. Myself I'm a CERAMIST and I design and make with clay all the plates where you will enjoy the meal prepared by Rico. I studied with a Japanese teacher and in Japan a meal isn't considered quality if it isn't served in a pretty dish. I am looking forward to share the experience with you.

What to expect at Rico&Irene's place
It's hard to imagine a better way to spend an evening while in Seville! Rico and Irene are fantastic hosts and have a truly unique and wonderful home to share with you. My family of four enjoyed a vegetarian menu that impressed us again and again: the colors and freshness of the ingredients, the remarkable flavors and textures of courses, and the gorgeous place-settings all leave a lasting impression. On top of all of that goodness, Rico and Irene create an incredibly warm and welcoming environment that enhances the food with such great conversation and local recommendations! Do not miss the opportunity to book this experience!
It was a great evening at Rico and Irene. The apartment is fantastic and a perfect introduction for this evening. rico has enchanted us with an extraordinary menu. a short trip around spain with a few well-defined accents from asian and indian cuisine. excellent! Irene was a great host, who gave us great tips for our stay in the Sevilla and was a wonderful conversation partner. The atmosphere was very familiar and we felt comfortable all around. We were also particularly impressed by Irene's artistic work - she made all the plates from ceramics herself. just great. rico has prepared the dish to match and made the individual dishes to a feast for the eyes. We are very pleased to have made this exceptional experience and would happily recommend the dinner. thanks to rico and irene!
The experience was unparalleled, artistic and passionate hostess showed us guests the gallery style house with creative paintings, colorful decorations and countless stories. The residence is typical structured with a garden surrounded in the middle. The food are all unique but with traditions. All the plates were made by the hostess and chef cooked us cold soup, Cannelloni, Black corn bread with spicy seafood, and my favorite risotto with wild asparagus and chocolate with avocado cream. Every detail matters, every ingredient is selected by heart and every bite is tasty and unique. Everyone can have quality and refined food in a Michelin Restaurant, but here with lovely hosts, joyful accompany and artistic details and the chef serve only one table wholeheartedly~
