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

We usually schedule a cooking class while on vacation and bcnKITCHEN exceeded our expectations. Chef Rais not only shared her knowledge of Catalan cuisine, but also her native knowledge of El Born. The market your was a class in itself. Chef Rais' command of the English language was competent and easily understood. The professional kitchen is nicely laid out with... More

It was a pleasure to attend the cooking courses in bcnKITCHEN. A big plus to the school for including the visit to Catarina market without additional price. Other schools in the centre I have been to charge extra for that. I also liked that Catarina market was less crowded than the famous Boqueria market and gave a stronger feeling of... More

If you love food and community you absolutely must add this to your Barca itinerary. Rais is an amazing educator, chef and hostess. We had the opportunity to visit the market, learn about the ingredients we selected for our meal and cook together over wine and wonderful conversation. Our time together flew by and Rais' leadership made the entire experience... More

We throughly enjoyed our lesson. Rais is a wonderful teacher and provided us an informative, interesting visit to the market. She also gave us a history of the Catalan dishes we prepared. It was a lovely time from beginning to end. She has unfortunately made it very difficult for us to eat just any old Paella. How will it ever... More

Sure, you can taste Catalan food in a restaurant but it's far better to help prepare a meal yourself and learn a bit about the local ingredients and enjoy the company of others in a great kitchen. Chef Rais is a wonderful teacher who shows you how to make a few traditional dishes that are delicious and fun to work... More

What a great activity in Barcelona, I would highly recommend this to anyone. Interesting, informative and lots of fun. Plus you get to meet some lovely people while you cook up delicious food. I will be cooking the dishes as soon as we get home. Thank you again for such a great time. Book it in you won't be disappointed.

How many activities can you find that your whole family enjoys? From our 9 year old girl to 18 year old son, we all had a blast. Shopping and walking through the city was a great learning experience, the cooking and prepping was fun, and the food was great. Thanks Chef Rais.

One of the best things I did in Barcelona! Given the incredible nightlife it would have been easy to spend my nights partying and days sleeping as some of my friends did! But I am soooo glad I came to the class. Chef Rais was helpful and approachable, it really was like preparing a dinner party with a friend! I... More

This was, for me, the highlight of our Europe trip (we went to Paris, Barcelona, Rome and Florence). If there was one experience you could choose to do, choose BCN kitchen's Spanish cooking class (with Chef Rais). It has everything you want to experience in another country because you get to learn a little about the culture, geography and history... More
