What will you find?

Taste the real flavors of Spain and learn how to prepare traditional Spanish dishes with a local chef in Barcelona. Whether you’re a cooking enthusiast or culinary novice, you’ll enjoy the hands-on experience of this private Spanish cooking class.

Start by visiting the famous Boquería market in Barcelona with your chef. This traditional and colorful market is home to an array of local products, such as fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood and cheeses – a wide variety of scents and flavors that make for delicious, rich cuisine. Learn from your chef how to choose the best quality products.

Next, head to the chef’s private apartment in Barcelona. Wash your hands, get the pans out and let the fun start! Begin by preparing a delicious starter, such as gazpacho (a cold vegetable soup), pa amb tomàquet (bread with tomato) or huevos rellenos (stuffed eggs. Continue uncovering the secrets of Spanish cooking as you make paella (Spain’s most famous dish - rice with seafood or a selection of meats), or chicken with prawns, and finish your class with the mouthwatering dessert crema catalana (Catalan cream) or torrijas (Easter bread pudding).

While you put the finishing touches on the meal, learn the art of food and wine pairing. Then it’s time to taste your creations! Set the table and enjoy your meal with a well-deserved glass of wine! After your meal, hear more about Spanish cuisine from your chef while savoring a cup of coffee.

Reviews & Ratings

  1. Never did we believe how much fun we would have shopping, chopping, cooking and eating! Our experience was by far the highlight of our week in Barcelona. Laia, our chef, informed us of the regional dishes. Our menu was perfect for the weather (summer time and humid) and delicious. Gracias!
  2. Excellent experience - chef was very friendly, helpful, and made us feel right at home in her apartment. Great meal, great company, great time! One of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona. I would highly recommend it to those who love to cook!
