Fantastic cooking class today at Cook and Taste in Barcelona. After a great tour of La Boqueria, Maria, our chef, guided us through creating beet and watermelon gazpacho roasted vegetable and salted cod salad tomato bread seafood paella and creama de Catalon! She shared tips on cooking, regional specialties, Catalonia customs, and historical insights. Absolutely delicioso!
If you are interested on how to learn and have fun this is the best way to do. Lots of food and wine and a superb teacher. Thanks
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.
Great fun with the chef and interacting with other vacationers. Highly recommended!
Wonderful instructor/chef, nice facility, lovely folks to cook and dine with, yummy food. All was good and lots of laughs and fun. Chef Assumpta kept it upbeat and informative. Great gazpacho, paella, creme de Catalana and wine galore. This is a fun night in Barcelona.

We I'm Mr No Cook but I really enjoyed this. We were all made to feel comfortable and relaxed in the company of the group. All levels of participant were catered for. Our chef/tutor was excellent and I'd do a similar cooking class again at the drop of a hat as they say Do it!! Recommended
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.
Wonderful. Very informative. Maria was excellent. Great idea for understanding food of country. Recommend very highly.
Great class!! My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and Mario was the best instructor! The food was awesome. Can and #39;t wait to try these recipes on my own when I return home. Definitely a must do while you are visiting Barcelona!
We had the most wonderful time at this cooking class whilst on our recent trip to Barcelona. Jsunta was a perfect hostess and wonderful chef who carefully explained what we were making whilst giving clear instructions on what we needed to do. We met some lovely people from the USA, Canada and Dubai apologies for not remembering names and all in all had a fantastic evening. I can't recommend this enough and would encourage everyone visiting Barcelona to set aside an evening to join a cooking class. The food was delicious, the company delightful and the evening perfect!
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.
