Fantastic morning! We began with a shopping trip to the market with Chef David. On the way to the market, David explained about some of the history in the area and made a few stops along the way to sample the Best Chocolate I Have Ever Tasted and for some fresh hot Churros. I got a good understanding of the market and he purchased items for our meal as well. What a fun class learning about Spanish food and Spanish cooking culture. The food was amazing and David is a very personable, thoughtful and helpful teacher. I highly recommend this class!

The cooking class was great fun, well organized, and deliciously successful. My fifteen year-old grandson and I enjoyed the experience with local foods and local flavor. It was a rich way to become familiar with a new city and a new culture.

One of the highlights of my stay in Barcelona. Maria our instructor involved everyone one in the preparation of the meal and displays a true passion for cooking. In addition she even prepared a special dish for my sister when she found out she was allergic to some of the ingredients in the dish we were preparing. She went above and beyond. We added a tour of the Boqueria market to the class. Maria introduced us to her favorite vendors and provided tips on the best shopping days. This information was invaluable as I am spending an extended amount of time in the city. Great experience.

We had a very diverse group of 12 international visitors to Barcelona and started off our class with a walk to the Boqueia Market to purchase ingredients with our tour guide and chef Maria. She explained much about the local Catalan food and the history of the market and we even got to taste some local favourites there. Then we went back to the very beautifully appointed kitchen and began to cook our five course meal, which included gazpacho, paella and of course lots of local wine. We enjoyed wine while we cooked and had a fabulous time listening to and following Maria's instructs and her stories of Catalan cuisine. Then we got to enjoy the fruits of our labour - everything was delicious! I would highly recommend this activity if you are visiting bella Barcelona.
