Great fun shopping with Quim at the Boqueria and enjoyed learning to cook Catalan cuisine and eating such delicious food!! A great experience!
Booked last minute before we left for Barcelona and we were very pleased with the entire cooking event. Our Chef Sara made the evening very friendly, fun and informative. Our 11 year old son had a great time as well. He got to torch the Creme Catalan....with supervision of course. Highly recommend this event to all who love a little hands on and dining experience all in one.
Fantastic! David, the chef, was terrific! He planed a wonderful menu from h'orderves to yummy dessert-
Everyone was encouraged to participate- the highlight was learning the ins and outs of making paella-
You don't have to be a gourmet cook to enjoy the evening- great dinner prepared and enjoyed by all-
Highly recommend it!
Would really recommend this class and the walk trough the market to buy the ingredients for anyone interested in Spanish food. Teacher/chef was very patient with anyone struggling to prepare the food and all of the dishes were very tasty. It was a great experience.
Being a novice- it was a fun night where I learned not only cooking skills but presentation skills! The instructor was patient and very knowledgable ... Highly recommend!
Absolutely wonderful experience in the able hands of Maria, who went through the basics of Catalan cooking; the rest of us went through several bottles of Catalan red wine, as the class was concluded with a dinner, set in the kitchen where the battle had been won, with the food we had prepared ourselves. Bravo!
This is a must do.
My mother and I had a fabulous time at this class. We were together with 6 other students from around the world. The class started with a trip to La Boqueria market a "must see" when in Barcelona, where we purchased ingredients for our meal.We then returned to the kitchen and started cooking. Ana our teacher was wonderfully patient and full of great information. I can't wait to recreate all of the recipes at home!
Our Cooking Class experience in Barcelona was a delight from start to finish. We signed up for the additional trip to the market, which we highly recommend. We had visited the market (an experience not to be missed) several times, but to do so with a chef was to see it in an entirely new light. Shopping for cuttlefish for the seafood paella was certainly new! Our chef explained the things he was buying and answered our myriad questions.
The meal we prepared had four elements--seafood paella with cuttlefish, prawns, mussels and other tasty bit (an a way of cooking rice we hadn't seen before), crème catalunya, gazpacho and a hors d'oeuvre of vegetables and delicious nora peppers. Our chef ensured everyone had a role in the preparation and the meal was absolutely delicious.
One of the best element was the camaraderie that developed among the group. We were an American couple, and there was an English couple, an American family (whose early-mid teen girls were pulled right into the meal preparation by the chef and into the conversation by everyone else), a young Canadian couple and a young Swedish couple. We all shared a love of (or at least strong interest in) cooking and learning about new cultures. It was really fun to compare notes on their experiences in Barcelona. The class and most of the conversation was in English.
We did the class on our final night in the city after a week's visit, and it was a great way to end the trip. In our view, this is an experience we can highly recommend.
A good representative selection of Spanish food was cooked. The chef was knowledgeable, skilled, good English, and fun. We had a great time!
We had so much fun walking the La Boqueria and the cooking class with Maria this month. We learned so much at La Boqueria and got to participate in the buying of our fresh ingredients we were going to use. Each recipe we made was delicious and we are going to make the tomato bread this weekend. Easy and delicious. Maria helped us make the best paella we ever ate and she made the class fun. We were lucky enough to have a fun engaging group ready to cook, learn and party. If you want fun, wine, good food and learning then take this class. Thank you Maria (regards to hermano y hermana).
The Tour of the Market and the Cooking Class was a fabulous experience!! Both my wife and I enjoyed both and would highly recommend both. The Cooking Class was a hands on experience and our chef instructor was GREAT!!!! We enjoyed the cooking and the meal also. We learned a lot about Spanish Cuisine...Thanks!
Great cooking course. Visit to markets was informative, great fun cooking a variety of food in a fun environment. Thoroughly recommend the class.
We attended the Friday evening class with the market tour. Outstanding! There were 12 participants n the class and we all had a chance to participate. We will definitely use the recipes agian!
My 3 daughters and I enjoyed these classes immensely. Very memorable! Chef David was very knowledgeable and informative and sincerely passionate about cooking! The walk through the market was a great addition to the classes as were the 4 other ladies that attended with us.
