Cooking with Yves was a highlight of our trip to Barcelona. Picking out favorite foods with Yves in the Boqueria market and cooking in his kitchen was so informative and fun. Yves kept us all busy in the kitchen and my 10 year old daughter loved it. Wonderful meal and SO fun! Thank you Yves!

A fabulous experience

We were on a lovely family vacation with 9 of us, including 3 kids, ages 10, 11 & 13. Yves met us at the market and immediately started planning out our meal as we strolled thru the various stalls. Back at his house, he got the entire family involved in the cooking process, and everyone had a great time. We ate on his rooftop enjoying the delicious food and unforgettable views of the city. This was without a doubt the highlight of our Barcelona trip.

Great tour and excellent cooking class!

My wife and I and our two children (ages 8 and 10) thoroughly enjoyed this tour and class. First we walked the market, while our chef/guide explained some of the local ingredients and suggested a wide array of possible dishes to cook. Somehow, we decided upon seven or eight courses, retraced our steps to purchase ingredients then traveled to the chef's house. In a little over an hour of cooking time, the four of us plus the chef prepared gazpacho, sausage meatballs w. mushrooms, tomato toast, fried 'parrot' fish (like sardines, but cleaner-tasting and resembling tropical parrotfish), baked monkfish filet, migas (breadcrumbs sautéed w peppers, garlic & spanish chorizo), a spanish omelette w zucchini & onions, and a fruit salad for dessert. All from scratch, and everything came out perfect and on-time with no panic, spills, cuts or burns. By far my favorite meal in Barcelona, and one of our best experiences overall.
