This was an excellent cooking class. One of the best tours we have done in Barcelona. Our chef went above and beyond with us in terms of insuring everyone in our class cooked or helped prep every item we made. It did not matter if you had cooking experience or not. The class was a blast.

Had the most enjoyable time here with Chef Rosa. A walk through the La Bouqueria Market was the best way to start the day.

I cannot speak highly enough about this cooking class. The class was fun, informative, and delicious. I cannot speak highly enough about the class or Rosa, our instructor. The class was a highlight of our trip to Barcelona.

This is a MUST SEE for anyone who enjoys cooking, eating, and local flavor! Our chef Carlos was an outstanding host and teacher... I'd rate this experience at 6 stars if I had the chance. The Romesco and fresh vegetables alone made this a 5 star experience and I'll be happily attempting to recreate the recipes at home as soon as possible. Put this one on your list asap!

This is a fantastic experience. Starting with walking the market and buying the ingredients and ending with finishing desert and saying goodby to new friends. We learned to to prepare, participated in preparing, and enjoyed eating a great meal. The instructor was very knowledgeable and freely shared her secrets. The highlights of the experience were the market and eating the food. The chef knows it well. Individual stall owners shared where and how they obtained their specific products and how to know what was fresh and what was not. The actual cooking was interesting, instructive and entertaining. My most broading experience, food wise, was eating cuddle fish and cockles. Both incredible as prepared. I would highly recommend that this be included in anyone's Barcelona experiences. After visiting the Sangrada Familia, do this.

My husband and I took this class on Thanksgiving Day, and we sure did eat ALOT! Maria brought us around the market, and then had the kitchen all ready to go. We did some of the preparations while she explained Spanish and Catalan history and culture. What a wonderful experience!
