  2. This was fantastic! Our Chef, Maria, was delightful and obviously very accomplished. Highly recommend adding the market tour which made the whole experience even more enjoyable.
  3. This tour was fantastic. I have not done a tour like this before, but I really enjoyed it. We went through the markets and saw the wide range of amazing fresh produce that was available. Our group of 8 people then learnt to prepare a 4 course meal. It was fun, interesting, and in the end really tasty. I would strongly recommend this tour to anybody with aninterest in food, and especially regional cuisine.
  4. This was one of the best things I have ever done. The chef was great fun and I learnt so much about Catelonian and Spanish food. It was a fabulous day. I highly recommend doing the market tour as well. If you appreciate food, good company and exploring new cultures, you will love this. A great day, really well organised and lovely premises.
  5. I stayed in Barcelona for 5 days, I had so much fun in Barcelona. If I have to choose the most memorable moment, I would defo. say "the cooking class". I joined the cooking class with market tour. I was impressed, because the chef, she explained everything clearly. The foods that the market sells are very fresh, it was a great experience to see the local market. Also, the cooking class was sosososo great, I really learned the good stuff from the class. For the foods, it couldn't be better!! I tried many meals in Barcelona, the one that I tried was the best meal I had in Spain!! I can't express it with my limited English. A picture is worth a thousand words!!
