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!

This cooking class is an absolute highlight!

Before cooking we were taken to the market and we received a lot of interesting information about the products and the way of life in Catalonia / Spain. The course afterwards should, however, be called a "paella cooking course". We cooked them ourselves under expert, very personable guidance with lots of product information. We also prepared tortilla and crema catalana. Super fine! The tapas were almost all ready-made and so we were allowed to feast and drink delicious white wine. We also learned a lot about the origin / history of tapas. Conclusion: This course is more than worth the money!
