This was a great experience made special by our guide/chef Assumpta. She took us shopping in the market for the ingredients we were going to use later to prepare a great meal. Our fellow students were very nice and interesting and from all over the world. We had a great time cooking, eating and talking. I cannot recommend this activity and Assumpta highly enough! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

There were 10 guests and 2 very knowledgable chefs. We had a great time made a fabulous meal paella and Catalunian Creme they actually let us cook instead of watch. The trip to LaBouqueria Market was a joy especially if you love big, exotic Farmers Markets.
