This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class in Madrid! The class was held at a beautiful, modern market, which was about a 12 Euro cab ride from the Plaza Mayor where we were staying. The chef was very entertaining and informative. First we toured the market and learned about some of the ingredients we would be using. We also had the opportunity to purchase smoked paprika and saffron from the market that were used in the paella, at a much lower price than they would cost in the US. We learned to cook Paella and Spanish Tortilla, with everyone participating in the preparation, and at the end we were given wine and ate our meal while the chef prepared a delicious dessert. There were 6 people in our group and we were the only ones in the class. It was a great experience, enjoyed by all.
