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

We were a group of 6 and had a private cooking class with menu tailor made to our needs. It was a busy night with all of us chopping and cooking and listening at the same time. The teacher was very good in directing us and introduce us to local food and ingredients , it was a fun and enjoyable... More

Chef Gonzalo makes the whole experience worth the fee. He is charming, energetic, and full of information. There were 11 students in our midday class preparing seasonal dishes using organic, local ingredients, including olive oil, tomatoes, peppers, shellfish, and fish. We made Crema Catalana for dessert and he showed us how to brûlée the sugar on top for great color.... More

Next time we... More

This cooking class was great as was the food we cooked. We were 7 total. 2 Grandparents, 2 Parents, 3 Teens. It was a great way bond and have fun doing it. The chef was clear in his directions, very helpful and again, the food was great. It's a little pricy, but well worth it.

I was so impressed with the facilities, the hands-on approach, the food we created, chef Alejandra and the very knowledgable staff at Espai Boisa. It was one of the most delicious meals I had in the city. I would... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip! The friendly staff, delicious food and education on traditional Catalan food was a welcome break from more shallow tourist attractions. The school is on a quiet street away from the bustle of the city. And our class was held in a neat, clean and peaceful oasis. Chef Alejandra was knowledgeable, kind... More
