This class was the highlight of our time in Barcelona. Our chef, Asumpta I know I spelled that wrong was absolutely charming. She had just the right mixture of personality and professionalism. She made this work for your supper event so much fun. Our group of 12 strangers felt like friends during the prep and family by the time the paella was done. Bring your appetite. You will eat plenty of starters/appetizers before the main course. Accompanied by great wine and ending with a fabulous crema catalana, this meal hits all the right gastronomy notes. It easily surpasses many of the restaurants who claim to offer paella. For men who are usually banned from the kitchen, there is a spot for you at this class. Even if you don't have knife skills to chop an onion, you can boil water, you can clean a vegetable, you can wash dishes...there is definitely a job in this kitchen for everyone!!!
An excellent evening. The food and wine was very good. We would do this again. I would have liked to select the type of main course even though the one provided was excellent.

I booked this for my wife and niece since they were going to be visiting Barcelona together during our niece's spring break from college. They loved it. The class had about 15 people in it and was a real hands on experience making numerous dishes. My wife posted a picture of the paella they made and said that the paella was to die for! My wife said the chef was fantastic explaining everything. A great learning and dining experience for both of them.
Wow! Everything we made was incredible. Looking forward to making at home. Our teacher was very good at explaining and making sure the class was participating. A must do if you enjoy eating and are in Barcelona
fantastic Class. great teacher. good food, can't wait to get home and try these recipes. recommend this class to anyone who likes to cook.
Fantastic experience! Food came out very well too! The chef was personable, informative, and fun. Everyone got to help in several tasks in making Paella and Catalonia Creme. Bring your appetite!
Excellent. Loved the hands on cooking. Instructor was excellent!!!
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!

Professional chef who engaged all participants while providing great instruction. Cook and Taste is conveniently located near the metro and La Rambla. Best day in Barcelona.
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.
We had a blast! Our chef was fun and very helpful. The kitchen as clean, big and welcoming. The best part was getting to know new people and having fun while working together. Lastly, the dinner we prepared was delicious! I highly recommend you give it a shot. Well worth the price.
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.
wonderful way to get to know the authentic culture of barcelona. maria and rosa, the chefs, are really nice and good at guiding us
The class, the food, and the other guests were great. Wonderful job by the staff on putting this together.
This was a most positive and fun experience. Hands on cooking and wine drinking day with great fellow visitors. Highly recommended. Our chef, Mario was great!
One of the unexpected highlights of our trip. My wife and I took this cooking class along with the excursion to the Boqueria market nearby and some areas around the Gothic area of the city. Our cooking instructor, Sarah was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience interesting and exciting. The kitchen facilities were first rate. I'm not a cook and I enjoyed it thoroughly and the meal we prepared together was perfect. Learned a lot about cured hams, spices, fish and shelfish. Ready to make paella back home now.
Really fun and educational experience. Our teacher, Sara sp?, was great!
Thanks to chef Sara and our great co-participants from Memphis, Jersey and D.C. we enjoyed this class a lot...lovely way to spend 4 or 5 hours learning some recipes as well as some local history, as well as contents of the local market that we would have not have appreciated without a knowledgeable foodie guide.
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!
BEST EVER..... Worth the money plus... Had a wonderful time with a total of 12...All very interesting people plus the chef was WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL. Best 5 hours of my life---well, nearly.
Excellent cooking class. Very relaxed and lots to eat. Chef was very friendly n helpful. Would def recommend this.
The teacher Azunta was lovely and charming, she passed the class very good and stayed with us for a long time.
The place was really clean and organized and the food was delicious.
I really recommend going on this class :
The trip to the market before the class is a must. It makes the experience so much richer. A lovely, professional, young woman was our instructor. Great fun and delicious food.
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.
