Excellent evening with an intimate group of 9 we all contributed to making a lovely four course meal. We were under the excellent tuition of our chef. David who also had a sense of humour. We all enjoyed eating our food and the wine was flowing
It was an amazing tour. Food was good, the wine was flowing, and we met a really good group of friendly people to spend the afternoon with! I highly recommend it!
Maria went out of her way to include all participants including two boys. I came away with the confidence to try these recipes at home. Only difficulty was finding the place but once found was impressed with the set up immaculately clean, staff were welcoming and Maria was helpful in answering any question.
One if the better classes I have been to in many cities
We took the cooking class that involved a trip to the market and it was an amazing start to a great day of cooking. We were 10 people and everyone took turns in helping the chef who did a great job. Everyone got different tasks in creating what was to be a great feast consisting delicious treats from the Catalan kitchen.
Best cooking experience--chef was personable and very skillful in engaging all 15 of us. The school was very modern and well equipped. Would do this one again.
Awesome experience, if you are a foodie I highly recommend! Picked up great cooking tips from the instructor, believe it was Sarah, she is a trained chef. Meet and cooked with great folks from different countries, brought home cook books and spices from the cooking school as gifts. Folks at the school are very friendly and helpful, would take another class when in Barcelona. Thanks for a great time.
Absolutely loved this cooking class. We had a great time. The tutor Maria was brilliant. Very inclusive and got us all involved. We learnt some great recipies all had a go and got to eat it all as well! I would highly recommend it.
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.
It was fun joining the group of 9 learning about Catalan cuisine from chef David. After walking around Barcelona for days it was a relief to have a relaxing half day learning to make classic catalan dishes..paella..catalan creme..etc. great way to meet new people ...Enjoy food and wine. Recommended!
This cooking class was absolutely amazing. It was the highlight of our time in Barcelona. David, the chef was so friendly and professional, the food was great the wine free flowing and the company, chat and laughs were supurb. We couldn't recommend this any higher. Totally brilliant.
This was a highlight of my trip to Barcelona. Going to the markets to buy the food for the class was a great experience. Also a wonderful way to bring people together in preparing and sharing a wonderful meal. The wine was pretty good too.
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.

It couldn't have been more fun. Our chef was a wealth of information, the trip to the market was outstanding. We cooked a 4 course meal, with everyone having a chance to participate in the preparation. I recommend this tour to anyone, especially to people traveling alone, like I was. At the end of the day I had made 9 new friends , had a terrific lunch and an amazing time.
This tour was amazing. I had a wonderful time, met new people and was able to get a hands on experience. Maria was very friendly and helpful. She gave helpful tips for cooking everyday foods which is appreciated. It worked for 1st time cooks and for cooks that have been cooking for years.
We were a group of 5 and enjoyed the Cooking Class.
None of us had ever taken a cooking class before and enjoyed it tremendously.
The Instructor was fantastic, knowledgable, and great with the group.
We were shown some great tips, the food was fantastic.
We take another cooking class in a heartbeat.
Thanks again for a fantastic experience in Barcelona.
Very good course and learnt a few new dishes to make and learnt how to make a proper paella.
Great experience! Our chef, Mario, was friendly and helpful. We had 9 people total in the class and we all did different parts of the dinner 2 appetizers, one main course and a dessert. It also included wine, ham and olives as kind of a break when some of the food was cooking. My 11-year-old daughter did it with us and loved getting to be a part of all of it. It's a very quaint, rustic kind of place and it all felt very authentic.
This tour was great fun!! The tour of the market was very informative and the cooking class itself was relaxed and enjoyable. The food was incredible. Well worth doing!!
Great experience! We did the Boqueria tour in the morning as well and it was such a unique experience to walk around the market and learn more about local food. Our cooking teacher, David, was fantastic and did a wonderful job providing us with directions, background on what we were cooking and answering any questions we had. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you enjoy cooking.
One thing to note - you don't actually cook all of the dishes yourself, instead the dishes are divided up between the attendees. This still allows it to be enjoyable, but you don't get as much exposure to how every dish is made, though all the recipes are provided.
