We indeed learned how to make paella and had fun. Well organized.
Great experience. Guided tour of market and then the cooking class. Food was excellent and instructor was very personable. Best Paella we had in Madrid ! Would recommend without hesitation.
Class was amazing! I learned a lot more than how to make paella, like tortilla espanola, my favorite! Only problem was two Spanish speakers joined our group so teacher translated between English and Spanish. I didn and #39;t mind but it did make class run longer, which I was on a time crunch.
Small group - personal attention. Refinement of familiar recipes and excellent tips to make your home cooking hobby mouthwatering. The paella was mouthwatering, and the orange salad unique. If you fear food, stay home. This is the height of flavors and combinations - of proper seasoning and working with traditional food.
This was a cool way to spend the afternoon. The instructor was entertaining and the food was delicious. We were able to get a tour of the market and learn a lot about the food in the area. We really enjoyed the class!
Great class. Made not just paella, but also a cod fish salad and a Spanish omelette.
This was absolutely one of the very best cooking classes I have attended in all my travels. Chef Soy is one of the best instructors, easy to understand and giving you lots of information, not only on the different foods in Spain and how to prepare the dishes he was showing us that day, but really great tips in the kitchen. I will book another cooking class with Chef Soy in the near future, but instead of only a half day, it will be a full day or even a week as he's a master in the kitchen.
Excellent cookery lesson. Superb location as well in the market. The food we made was absolutely delicious too!!
Excellent cooking class. The instructor was great. I met some amazing people when enjoying authentic cuisine
I highly recommend it
The Chef is full of information and very proffessional.
Of course, the food was excellente
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.
Best class ever! The chef was very personable, very knowledgeable. Easy to follow and prepare new recipes. Highly recommend this. Loved it!
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!
This was best cooking class I ever attended! Our teacher Fernando was great ant I learned a lot of things. Food and whine was perfect
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.
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.
I'm so glad we added this experience at the last minute! Fernando was an excellant chef and teacher! He took us around the market and taught us a lot about how Spanish markets are set up and of course, how to carefully choose our meats and fish. The class was amazing...it was just our party of 4 so we had the classroom/kitchen all to ourselves. We truly did learn a lot about spanish cooking and of course, the meals were amazing! Thank you to Fernando for making this experience an unforgettable one!
Very good and informative. Plus, the meal we prepared was delicious!
Best of our trip. We loved the class and had lots of fun. The instructor was knowledgeable and fun. A great experience
My cooking class was fantastic and soooo much fun! Chef Julia is an excellent teacher and I learned so much from her in addition to the cooking. We made a paella, Spanish tortilla, Orange and Cod salad and Pears cooked in wine sauce. YUM!
