Maria went out of her way to include all participants including two boys. I came away with the confidence to try these recipes at home. Only difficulty was finding the place but once found was impressed with the set up immaculately clean, staff were welcoming and Maria was helpful in answering any question.
One if the better classes I have been to in many cities

We took the cooking class that involved a trip to the market and it was an amazing start to a great day of cooking. We were 10 people and everyone took turns in helping the chef who did a great job. Everyone got different tasks in creating what was to be a great feast consisting delicious treats from the Catalan kitchen.
