I booked this class along with the market tour, and it was amazing! Our chef Rosa was so warm and friendly, in addition to being a wonderful teacher. She was able to answer all kinds of questions about ingredients, techniques, and Barcelona cuisine. We made romesco sauce, cod confit, squid/prawn paella, and crema catalana. Everything was delicious, and we had a wonderful time chatting together in the kitchen and at the table. Highly recommend!

Can't say enough positive things about this experience! We chose not to go to the market with the chef now, we regret it. If we had to do it over again, we would definitely have gone. The facilities were lovely, food was fabulous, class size was perfect. It goes down in our memories as a highlight of all the trips we have taken. Chef Carlos was the perfect person to work with on our cooking. Would highly recommend this!

Tour started at the class. We walked to market, the guide told some of the history, and showed us around the market. Several items for the meal were purchased. There was no wandering around on your own. Upon return to kitchen, all washed their hands, donned aprons and were offered wine. Each student was given a chance to volunteer for different jobs and the atmosphere was fun and positive. Old experience and great food.

Going to the market and learning how things really work in Barcelona for food purchasing was great. Carlos engaged everyone in the group including the 2 children who were part of the class. We learned many new things like grating tomatoes, best way to roast veggies and pallella is for veggies or fish note chorizo
