What people are saying about Barcelona

Josh was amazing and knowledgeable at the market and in cooking tapas.

My teen/twenty something sons were tired from a long day with Gaudi tours and were complaining about going on this one. Since it included dinner I convinced them not to cancel. From getting us samples at the market, showing us all of the options available and then taking us to his meal prep location everything was wonderful. My sons were so into it. Best thing we did in Barcelona. As it turned out we were the only ones taking the class so we got to learn about Josh and he about us. He had all 3 of us chopping and frying and pouring and yes—even torching tasty tapas, sangria and desert. We tried all types of food we had never tried before and he joined us for the meal. When I tell people we did this, they are sorry they didn’t experience this type of fun when they were here. I want to say it was pricey, but I cannot. He was with us for 4 hours and it included all of the food. He is very personable and welcoming and I would highly recommend this experience. Especially if you like food!

A great introduction to tapas and pi.nchos

Olga was very knowledgeable of the history of the area we walked through. She explained the different types of ham in the Boqueria and the samples were good. I think this tour would be best earlier in the morning before so many crowds especially the Boqueria. We enjoyed our tapas stop near the Santa Caterina market, the brief tour of the market itself. My favourite stop was the Basque restaurant and the pinchos. Olga was very understanding when my two companions had to leave us due to mobility-related health issues and continued on with me explaining historical features along the way. She was helpful in assisting me in locating a bookstore. Thank you, Olga!

An experience to learn about Spanish food culture & have a blast!

This was hands down one of our favorite memories of our trip to Spain! Our instructor Josh is so friendly and his passion for Spanish food culture and cuisine was infectious. We learned so much about Barcelona markets, culture & food. He really knows what he is talking about and creates such a fun cooking environment. We enjoyed cooking and tasting a variety of delicious Spanish tapas and got great hands on experience in the kitchen while having a ton of fun! We would highly recommend this class to anyone who is looking for a fun and educational cooking experience in Barcelona.

Very knowledgable and the food was delicious!!

Maria our tour guide was really nice and had a lot of local knowledge. The food was delicious in the few places that we visited, it’s places that we wouldn’t have visited otherwise as they are not places you would necessarily pass if you were just visiting the main attractions in Barcelona. It was nice to visit bars and restaurants that we wouldn’t have visited if we weren’t on the tour. Well worth doing the tour and would super recommend it if you love your food and drink!

Josh was so much fun to spend the day with!

Our group of 6 had a private cooking session with Josh. All of the food came out amazing and we had so much fun! Josh was very accommodating and made us feel right at home. He really taught us a lot about the local market. All of the seafood he picked out was very fresh. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
