This was a ton of fun! It was a small class, so lots of hands on and interaction with each other. Chef was great, explained everything well and had lots of good tips along the way. All the dishes tasted amazing! I had a lot of different kinds of paella in Spain, and this recipe was a favorite. We asked about being sure to get the recipes and they emailed us all the recipes even ones we didn't make! right then and there.
The class was great. The teacher/chef was very knowledgable about Spanish produce, cooking and techniques. I learnt a lot and would recommend this class. I thought it would be very touristy but it wasn and #39;t.
This was my favorite activity while in Madrid! The instructor was phenomenal, The dishes we made were exciting to create and I enjoyed being in class with people from other parts of the world.
I went on June 24 (Friday) with my 14 year old daughter and we both had a great time. Definitely worth doing. We helped cook Spanish Torlilla, Paella, made Sangria and a salad and also had an apple flambé. Food was delicious. Can and #39;t wait to receive the recipes via email. Thank you Chef!
We indeed learned how to make paella and had fun. Well organized.
Great experience. Guided tour of market and then the cooking class. Food was excellent and instructor was very personable. Best Paella we had in Madrid ! Would recommend without hesitation.
Class was amazing! I learned a lot more than how to make paella, like tortilla espanola, my favorite! Only problem was two Spanish speakers joined our group so teacher translated between English and Spanish. I didn and #39;t mind but it did make class run longer, which I was on a time crunch.
Small group - personal attention. Refinement of familiar recipes and excellent tips to make your home cooking hobby mouthwatering. The paella was mouthwatering, and the orange salad unique. If you fear food, stay home. This is the height of flavors and combinations - of proper seasoning and working with traditional food.
This was a cool way to spend the afternoon. The instructor was entertaining and the food was delicious. We were able to get a tour of the market and learn a lot about the food in the area. We really enjoyed the class!
Great class. Made not just paella, but also a cod fish salad and a Spanish omelette.
This was absolutely one of the very best cooking classes I have attended in all my travels. Chef Soy is one of the best instructors, easy to understand and giving you lots of information, not only on the different foods in Spain and how to prepare the dishes he was showing us that day, but really great tips in the kitchen. I will book another cooking class with Chef Soy in the near future, but instead of only a half day, it will be a full day or even a week as he's a master in the kitchen.
Excellent cookery lesson. Superb location as well in the market. The food we made was absolutely delicious too!!
Excellent cooking class. The instructor was great. I met some amazing people when enjoying authentic cuisine
I highly recommend it
The Chef is full of information and very proffessional.
Of course, the food was excellente
Not only did I learn how to make Paella, but Fernando our chef also taught the small group how to make a special salad and a tortilla - all of which we ate - plus he made a special dessert for us. If you are looking for a cultural experience with a difference, this is it!
So, far this was the best tour I have done with Viator. Chef Fernando Cler was a great teacher! Very detailed in his instructions and provided nice little tips you would only learn when cooking with your mama. I thoroughly enjoyed this class.
Had a fabulous time.
Group of eleven, we all got involved with preparing the dishes.
We learnt how to cook an authentic Spanish omlette and Spanish paella. Saffron and the right paprika can be purchased in the market below.
Flambé bananas were served to us as we ate the omelette and paella with the only decent Spanish wine while we were in Spain.
Such a good time and all recipes were emailed. Highly recommend.

My wife, daughter and sis-in -law along with myself spent the afternoon with Fernando in an informative, entertaining and delicious cooking class. We have been to several classes the last couple years and found we learned as much about cooking and cooking skills and tricks as we did about making Tortillas and a wonderful Paella. Fernando is the type of teacher where you feel you have absorbed the information, not just entertained and fed. A Special thanks to Fernando as my daughter is Vegetarian and he made 2 types of Paella, effortlessly. Well worth the cost and more.
Best class ever! The chef was very personable, very knowledgeable. Easy to follow and prepare new recipes. Highly recommend this. Loved it!
This was the perfect size class. There were only five of us and so we all had a chance to do the hand's on work. The salad, Spanish omelette, the paella and the orange fried bananas were great! Our instructor, Fernando, was excellent! He was hilarious and made sure we knew what we were doing and told us how to adapt the recipes to wear we each lived based on altitude. DEFINITELY do this if you can!
