So much fun with great people. Chef Asumpta was thorough with her presentation and the results were extraordinarily delicious. Besides the recipe application, Chef incorporated humor and a sincere interest in the people at her table. Traveling alone, this class is an opportunity to eat an authentic paella prepared for two in restaurants, meet interesting people, and take skills home as a souvenir of a memorable evening!

This was fantastic fun! Well worth the cost. Our chef, Mario, was professional, friendly and a very good cook. We met some lovely people. The space is beautiful and everything was over expectation - including the food which was Catalan and Valencian. Prepare to roll out of there full to the brim and with sweet memories.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our Market Tour do this option! and Cooking Class. It was a true highlight of our stay in Spain. Our instructor, Maria, was fun, knowledgeable, opinionated, highly proficient and a patient teacher and demonstrator. She taught us many things I didn't know and I think myself a decent cook but also was great with the more beginners in the class. A fun way to see an aspect of Barcelona though food culture.
