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.
The cooking class was really fun and the teacher, Sarah was great. I had a wonderful time.
What a fantastic experience. A little tricky to find, but the taxi driver drove me right up to the street. I was lucky enough to have a one on one class with the chef who was lovely. We went to the market which was intersting in itself and gave me a better appreciation for the Spanish, their food and culture. As for the cooking... Yum. Recipes were simple enough to follow, class was well paced and eating was devine. If you have a spare day a must do. Cheryl melbourne, Australia
Fantastic - our family all enjoyed this and the market tour was great.
This was so much fun! What a great activity for a small group to participate in. We all helped prepare a four course meal and learned so much about the cooking culture in Spain. We all went home with full bellies, recipes and new friends!
We are in a group of 7. We went to the market walk before the class started. We completed the class in a very nice atmosphere.
The teacher was good and the menu was well choosen.
Absolutely wonderful! Our cook was adorable and had such energy. Everyone got to participate. The paella was delicious as well as festive. I really felt that we received a slice of the culture. We would do this again.
Our cooking class was only six and our tour was four plus our guide/cook. The tour of the market was excellent and we gathered local knowledge about the market. Many stalls sell the same product but they are not the same.
the class itself was vey good, cooking your own dinner with a group is always filled with meeting new people and having a lot of laughs. Our group jelled right away and we cooked and drank and talked and ate. We prepared a three course meal including Paella, tapas and dessert. The instructor spoke perfect english and we really enjoyed his light hearted good humour and his technical skills.
This is a great experience not to be missed.
This was one of the highlights of our girls trip to Spain this year. It was so much fun. Our chef was wonderful. The food was so much fun to prepare. I would do this tour the next time I am barcelona.
We had a fabulous time. Maria our chef was charming and patient. Our fellow participants (mostly from Chicago) made the evening memorable. We picked up a couple of new cooking techniques and recipes...all the while tasting some very good spanish wines. I would encourage all visitors to Barcelona to give this cooking class a try. It's a fun way to spend an evening with like minded travellers.

What fun! David our chef was terrific. We all learned so much. The tour with David to the market was an education in how to pick the best produce and seafood. Everyone visiting Barcelona should take the cooking class.
Maria was an excellent teacher! The equipment in the kitchen is top-of-the-line and I've already made one of the things she taught us how to make. Thanks for the cooking tips!
Would highly recommend this tour. Was a lot of fun, and the food was delicious!
THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP TO SPAIN. HAD A GREAT TIME IN A WONDERFUL ATMOSPHERE WHILE LEARNING HOW TO COOK A NUMBER OF SPANISH DISHES. THE CHEF DAVID MADE IT FUN AS WELL AS DELICIOUS.
A fun experience with a small group of fellow tourists. We started with a visit to the spectacular Boqueria market and ended up with a four course meal prepared by us all accompanied by several glasses of wine.
I didn't especially enjoy the paella that we made but the rest of the food was great.
It was an excellent day that we thoroughly enjoyed.
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.
