Madrid Cooking Class: Learn How to Make Paella

Learn how to cook paella in Madrid!

Meet your instructor at Torrijos Market in central Madrid, and after a quick look around the stalls of this modern food market, head inside its cooking school for your class.

In your small group of 10 people, learn about classic Spanish food from your knowledgeable instructor, hearing about the history and traditions that have created its internationally acclaimed reputation. The whole country is obsessive about food, and for good reason; simple, locally grown ingredients combined with recipes handed down from generations have created a world-class cuisine.

Learn how to cook the staples of Spanish gastronomy, like paella, tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelette) and gazpacho (chilled tomato soup).

Toward the end of your session, sit down with your host and group to eat your creations! Each dish is paired with Spanish white or red wines – chosen to complement and accentuate the flavors of the food. Before leaving, your instructor will give you a recipe card so that you can re-create the food yourself at home to impress friends and family!

Not only did I learn how to make Paella, but Fernando our chef also taught the small group how to make a special salad and a tortilla - all of which we ate - plus he made a special dessert for us. If you are looking for a cultural experience with a difference, this is it!

So, far this was the best tour I have done with Viator. Chef Fernando Cler was a great teacher! Very detailed in his instructions and provided nice little tips you would only learn when cooking with your mama. I thoroughly enjoyed this class.

Had a fabulous time.
Group of eleven, we all got involved with preparing the dishes.
We learnt how to cook an authentic Spanish omlette and Spanish paella. Saffron and the right paprika can be purchased in the market below.
Flambé bananas were served to us as we ate the omelette and paella with the only decent Spanish wine while we were in Spain.
Such a good time and all recipes were emailed. Highly recommend.

My wife, daughter and sis-in -law along with myself spent the afternoon with Fernando in an informative, entertaining and delicious cooking class. We have been to several classes the last couple years and found we learned as much about cooking and cooking skills and tricks as we did about making Tortillas and a wonderful Paella. Fernando is the type of teacher where you feel you have absorbed the information, not just entertained and fed. A Special thanks to Fernando as my daughter is Vegetarian and he made 2 types of Paella, effortlessly. Well worth the cost and more.

This was the perfect size class. There were only five of us and so we all had a chance to do the hand's on work. The salad, Spanish omelette, the paella and the orange fried bananas were great! Our instructor, Fernando, was excellent! He was hilarious and made sure we knew what we were doing and told us how to adapt the recipes to wear we each lived based on altitude. DEFINITELY do this if you can!

Wonderful hands on cooking class. Professional chef taught our small group Spanish omelette, Orange Cod Salad, Paella, Flaming Banana dessert. Everyone got an apron and some jobs to do. Very social time with other guests as we enjoyed our feast, including lovely wines. We had a walking tour of local market prior to starting to gain further insight into culture. Easy to get to on Metro at Goya station. Fun break from touring palaces, cathedrals and shops.
