Small group limited to 12 people ensures a more personal experience
Make your way to a private home in Barcelona’s colorful Gracia district, where you’ll meet a local chef who is passionate about Spanish cuisine. Enter a private home and garden to begin your introduction to Spanish gastronomy, starting with a paella recipe that’s been handed down through the family. Sip a glass of wine as you prepare a slow-cooked sofrito, a blend of onions, fresh vegetables, and seasonings that’s the flavorful base for cooking paella—all the ingredients from from the nearby Sagrada Familia farmer’s market. As the fragrant blend simmers on the flame, you’ll join the chef to make some Spanish tapas as a light snack, then complete the preparation of the paella. When the dish is ready, sit down to enjoy the meal you’ve prepared, and experience a quintessential part of Spanish life and culture. At the end of the cooking class, you’ll have a recipe to take home with you so you can prepare the classic Spanish dish in your own kitchen.
