Touring the market and gaining an insight into Catalonia food traditions was very interesting. We also had the opportunity to share in the preparation of our meal. Did learn a few techniques in how to prepare traditional dishes especially the paella. Good group of people which made it fun. Looking forward to receiving the recipes.

A great experience!

After a short greeting, we went to the market hall with a very informative tour. The actual cooking course started with the delivery of ten different tapas from different regions of Spain and an explanation of each tapa. Then we (a total of nine people) were allowed to try a Spanish omelet, a Catalan cream and a seafood paella under the expert and very entertaining guidance of the cook. At the end, these dishes were then eaten in a cozy atmosphere. It was a fantastic experience, with a lot of information and even more fun!

Wonderful and easy to recommend, great promotion for a short vacation!

The course took place in a wonderful atmosphere, tasteful rooms and the very best organization in advance. The stroll through the market to buy the things needed for the recipes was an informative addition. The cook and assistant were a very well coordinated team and the group that came together was lively and very interested. You learn a lot about both taps and the stories behind them. Cooking together was a lot of fun and can also be safely implemented for inexperienced people. Time flew by and I would repeat such an action again and again in a vacation home. Fun, joy, getting to know people, trying out cooking, dining together in a city like Barcelona - just great! Thanks to the cooks, a recommendation that I will pass on to my friends!
