Can't say enough good things about this fun experience
We just returned from an amazing family vacation in Barcelona and one of the top highlights for our family, even for our teenage daughter and son, was the Tour of the Boqueria Market and Cooking Class. I cannot say enough positive things about this experience. The class is conducted in an amazing apartment overlooking the Placa Real in Barcelona. The room is very tastefully décorated and the view from the apartment onto the Placa is very picturesque. You get a real flavor for the activity in the town from this vantage point. Before we began to cook, Janella, Chef Alfredos assistant, gave us a tour of the Boqueria Market. This was very helpful, as the market can be a little overwhelming. As she guided us through the market, Janella taught us about some of the local food that Spain is known for such as the jambon, cheese, and turron. After the market tour, we returned to the apartment and began our class with Chef Alfredo. The participants consisted of our family and a lovely Canadian couple. Chef Alfredo was extremely friendly, funny and professional. He is a talented chef and taught us so much about the local cuisine and culture. We tasted delicious tapas first and then made paella, tortilla de papas, and a Catalan Crème for dessert. During the class we received hands on experience cooking the various dishes along with Chef. Janella served as a wonderful interpreter for Chef. After preparing the meal, we ate together in the dining room. It was an unbelievably fun experience that I would highly recommend.
Would recommend to anyone. Highlight of our trip to Spain. Absolutely incredible!!!
