Amazing class with amazing people! I booked this class for my husbands birthday today as this is our first time here in Barcelona. Our instructor was Renata and she was very hands on as she taught us some of the traditional Catalonian dishes / ingredients....truly was an experience. If you are thinking about booking, DO IT! It's so worth the money and you get so much for it. We basically cooked a five course meal, with endless wine and got an experience of a lifetime. Can't wait to go home and make all of this food for our family and friends.

Starting with a shopping tour of Barcelonas oldest fresh market, the experience was both educational and entertaining. I could have spent HOURS (and a significant sum) in the market. There are some touristy candies at the entrance but there are farm sourced offerings as well as seafood (live) and butcher offerings, fresh vegetables, and peppers/spices. The came the kitchen introduction, fresh ingredients portioned with knife usage suggestions, safety, and local references. We prepared four courses of our own meal while being reminded, guided, and regaled. The recipes, complimentary pairings, along with seasoning and time management suggestions were invaluable.

We had a blast cooking with Juan. The tour of the market and shopping for some of our ingredients was fun and informative. Then we had a ton of fun cooking an amazing meal back in the kitchen. Juan was a knowledgeable and entertaining teacher. I would highly recommend this activity.
