Assumpta and the Cooking Class was a must do experience when visiting Barcelona. The small group size is perfect and the hands on experience, terrific menu, good wines, and ineraction with Assupmta and classmates is unforgettable. Loved the Chef's tweaking and adjusting the menu to enhance the experience. Best Gazpacho, Paella de Marisco, and Crema Catalana we have ever tasted and theCoca Con Escalivada y Balcalao Confitatado better than expected. What a great time we will never forget.

Maria was a great guide. Very informative during the market tour. Very professional. The food was extremely fresh, Maria had a sense of humor and the wine was plentiful. The recipes were ready to take home at the end of class. We enjoyed taking the class with people from many other destinations.

Our instructor, Assumpta, was marvelous. Not only was she a highly skilled culinarian, but she was also funny and compassionate. We enjoy the food we prepared as a group and left with new knowledge, skills, and full tummies.
