Our love for food leads us from the school to a local food market in the very best center, where we buy some groceries and explain as much as we can around every little ingredient we see there, and back again to the school. Now, at this point, aprons on! Cook, learn, laugh, drink and enjoy while cooking. All around the kitchen, and then in the table, we’re going to get directly into Barcelona, Catalunya and Spain bite by bite, sip by sip. « less

What I enjoyed was the chef talking about the city and the places were passing through,gave a glance through a local. We then headed back to the kitchen and began cooking with the chef a complete course.... More

The cooking class was the highlight of my trip. Rais was super engaging. I can feel her passion towards cooking and her culture. It was fun visiting the local Santa catherina market. Love the colours and the vibes of the market. Even though we were not cooking our own dishes, Rais was able to get everyone involved so no one... More

I really enjoyed the Spanish cooking class led by chef Rais, which also included shopping for ingredients at the local covered market. I found it very hands-on and not overly complicated, and full of interesting information. The learning, the exquisite company and the delicious outcome made it definitely the highlight of my long weekend in Barcelona. I highly recommend it!
