We are equally specialized in organizing and hosting private celebrations, company events, and team building activities, all based around cooking activities and food.

We took a 30 person American group to Espai Boisa for 3 hours of cooking and all totally enjoyed the activity (including the men). Upon our arrival, we were handed a glass of wine and then split into 3 groups for a very hands-on creative cooking class. The groups rotated so we did it all. They included a special twist... More

Our group of 28 took a class here and learned and laughed with the awesome staff. We produced some excellent dishes and competed in an iron chef competition. Usual clientele are actual local people learning to cook, so I think it was fun for the staff as well as it was for all of us. Hard to locate, just off... More

I visited this on a business trip team building evening. Prior to our cooking we had a guided trip round the Food Market in La Rambalas. Chef Eugen had prepared the dishes for us to cook tapas. We were a large group and had the restaurant to ourselves. We were split into teams and competition was strong. During this Chef... More

Did an Indian Bread workshop here and we learnt to make three types of bread and take some home to cook later. And got a lovely meal at the end. Great teacher, super cute place in an easy to find location. Well recommended.

On our last day in Barcelona we spent the afternoon with Chef Eugen and his assistant, Monica, for the Paella and Tapas cooking class. As a group of four friends, we were thrilled to arrive and learn that we had the kitchen and the staff completely to ourselves. Eugen had shopped prior to our arrival for all of the fresh,... More

Far and away, the best part of the experience was our instructor/chef, Javier. He was cheerful and engaging, tailoring the lesson to our skill level. All of us were already reasonably competent in the kitchen, so he took the time to show us some more advanced techniques, from knife skills to preparation methods, which was delightful. He was also more... More

It was advertised as no more than groups of 4 but our class was actually 11 people! The teacher comes of as quite aggressive, but only softened up near the end. The tools were extremely dull and they just pretended it wasn't when mentioned. The saffron for the paella was replaced with a cheaper ingredient "there was no more left... More

The idea is that each group will cook all... More

Group of 9 on a Wednesday day class. Enjoyed learning a few Spanish dishes however this class is not for the gourmet cook, not that I fall into that category. The recipes are provided in hard copy at the end of the day and also by email. I found it useful to read the recipes after undertaking some of the... More

This was a great experience. I'd cooked most of the dishes before at home, but Alejandra, the chef, taught me several techniques to make them even better. She is very knowledgeable about cooking and food, and fielded all my questions with ease. I also enjoyed meeting, cooking and eating with the others in my class. I had worried it was... More
