Asumpta was a wonderful chef, she explained well, with variations on the recipes, and all was hands-on. We had a great group and the dishes were absolutely delicious! Glad to learn new recipes that I will actually make, would highly recommend this class, but it was a little hard to locate on a side street. I think the directions should include the August Temple in helping to locate the venue.
This was the best thing we did! Don't miss the tour of the market! I felt that the people who only did the cooking class really missed out. Our darling chef/guide was great, we learned a lot!
Definitely worth doing! Our chef/teacher Asunta was wonderful -very welcoming, friendly, and encouraging as she guided us to create a meal for the group of watermelon-beet gazpacho, coca bread with roasted veg, paella, and creme de Catalan. The experience was a lot of fun and the food was delicious!

Assunta was amazing! It was not seafood paella was a little disappointed but the chicken was good! All the food was fantastic! Assunta was very friendly and fun!
Amazing experience. Highly recommended for adults and children aged from about 9 upwards. Assunta was an amazing teacher and we learnt a huge amount whilst making a delicious four course meal.
This was our first cooking class ever! We choose the lunch. It was a hands on class with all of us prepping and cooking and drinking wine. The paella and crema catalana were delicious. Everything was prepared from scratch. It is well worth the cost and the fun.
My husband and I absolutely LOVED this class! The instructor, she was such a joy! Between her and the classmates, we didnt want the class to end.
This was my first cooking class while traveling. I choose the evening dinner but it was full so opted for the lunch with market tour. Glad I did. Loved going to La Bouqueria to shop for fresh ingredients for our lunch. It was a hands on class with all 14 of us prepping and cooking and drinking wine. We had ham and sourdough bread with tomatoes and olive oil to nibble on while we cooked. For lunch we had gazpacho, bread with roasted vegetables and salt cod confit, paella and egg custard for dessert. Everything was prepared from scratch. Well worth the cost and such fun.
This was an amazing experience! My boyfriend and I met wonderful people who were also there to learn about the culture, food markets and cooking Spain style. The Chief who led the group was great! I would definitely recommend.
A must for anyone who enjoys cooking!! You get to help prepare a typical four course Spanish meal and drink some well lots of wine. We were lucky to have met a fun and enthusiastic group at the Class which just topped the experience. What more could you want!!!
Superlative - my friend and I really loved the whole market and cooking experience!! The meals and company were amazing and our chef fabulous and informative. Thank you!!
Great evening! This was a fun evening with a great instructor, Mario. We learned how to prepare 4 recipes, gazpacho, a roasted vegetable flatbread, paella and crema Catalan. The food was amazing, and it was great to actually have hands on experience preparing the recipes. I highly recommend!
We had a great time. Assunta was amazing. She really knows how to keep her cool in the kitchen. I would recommend asking for her. Vince and Ralph and Michael and Paul, Philadelphia
We had an incredible time at our cooking class in Barcelona on Saturday, 7/2. Our chef was clear, kind and so knowledgeable. She made the class so much fun! We loved our time with her and the rest of the class.
Mario was Amazing. Very informative trip to the market, which would definitely recommend adding this to the experience. He explained everything and really showed us a new way to look at the market. My 14 year old son wanted to do this and he had the time of his life. The cooking and prepping were very hands on and lots of tips and tricks were shared. Mario made my son feel like he was a 5 star chef! When we get back to Barcelona we hope to take another of his classes....it was that good!
Great class! Thank you Rosa, the food was amazing, and the market tour was very informative. I appreciated your great organization and teaching skills. I promise to send a photo of my next paella!
The cooking class was excellent. Well worth the money. A little hard to find so give yourself enough time.
Fantastic cooking class today at Cook and Taste in Barcelona. After a great tour of La Boqueria, Maria, our chef, guided us through creating beet and watermelon gazpacho roasted vegetable and salted cod salad tomato bread seafood paella and creama de Catalon! She shared tips on cooking, regional specialties, Catalonia customs, and historical insights. Absolutely delicioso!
If you are interested on how to learn and have fun this is the best way to do. Lots of food and wine and a superb teacher. Thanks
Assumpta and the Cooking Class was a must do experience when visiting Barcelona. The small group size is perfect and the hands on experience, terrific menu, good wines, and ineraction with Assupmta and classmates is unforgettable. Loved the Chef's tweaking and adjusting the menu to enhance the experience. Best Gazpacho, Paella de Marisco, and Crema Catalana we have ever tasted and theCoca Con Escalivada y Balcalao Confitatado better than expected. What a great time we will never forget.
Great fun with the chef and interacting with other vacationers. Highly recommended!
Wonderful instructor/chef, nice facility, lovely folks to cook and dine with, yummy food. All was good and lots of laughs and fun. Chef Assumpta kept it upbeat and informative. Great gazpacho, paella, creme de Catalana and wine galore. This is a fun night in Barcelona.

We I'm Mr No Cook but I really enjoyed this. We were all made to feel comfortable and relaxed in the company of the group. All levels of participant were catered for. Our chef/tutor was excellent and I'd do a similar cooking class again at the drop of a hat as they say Do it!! Recommended
