bcnKITCHEN is a local cooking school, we are passionate about food and our objective is to share that passion with you! We have two kitchens, one in the charming Born district and the other in the Boqueria market building, all of the ingredients we use come from the market that you will be visiting with our chef. Once you arrive back at our cooking school, wine in one hand apron in the other, it’s time to start cooking! After a couple of hours of action you’ll sit amidst the dishes you have prepared with the satisfaction of having prepared a Spanish feast!

Extremely enjoyable cooking class with Chef Alvaro! His passion for food and Michelin star expertise mixed with a clear and concise yet fun and jovial atmosphere were an awesome combination for a four hour class for me and my girlfriend! Plus the added bonus that everything we produced tasted incredible! Looking forward to next time can't recommend highly enough!

Our chef, Al, was terrific! He took us through the Boqueria, talking about local foodstuffs, and purchased the items we'd be using for the class. Then we opened some wine, and got started. Our menu included gazpacho, spanish omelette, paella, and flan. He made sure to help us thru every step, sharing chef tricks along the way. Our group of... More

Leena was an excellent chef/teacher. Really fun day and delicious food! The tour around the market was insightful, especially learning about how to buy the best fish. :)

We had a great time taking the Spanish cooking class with bcnKitchen. It's a great way to spend a few hours to explore Spanish cuisine and how to cook it. Cooking with a group was a lot of fun and our chef, Leena, was a great host. She was very helpful in answering questions and making sure everyone was doing... More

I took the Market Visit + Spanish Cooking Workshop taught by Chef Rais when I visited Barcelona last fall. Despite all the time that has passed, I still wanted to write a review. It is a wonderful class that gives you some insight into and an appreciation of Catalonia cuisine. The class started with a trip to Mercado Santa Caterina,... More

Leena, our chef, was a passionate advocate of Catalan cooking. She was easy to get along with and engaged all of the group (young and less young) to work and interact together. Her knowledge with regard to fresh produce and key points to look for in the markets was amazing. Once the delicious meal had been prepared and consumed, Leena... More

Do you ever go to a cooking class somewhere and just watch the clock in anticipation of when this boring class will be over? That is not BCN kitchen! These guys are fun lively and you get to make a lot of food for a very reasonable price. What I especially loved was that Leena our chef was very open... More

We had a fabulous day yesterday at bcnKITCHEN. Chef Amelia shared her secrets for selecting fresh produce during our market tour and then taught us how to make traditional Spanish food. This was followed by a delicious lunch eating the food we prepared. Thanks Amelia for making our day so memorable.

Amelia was the perfect teacher - fun, enthusiastic and great knowledge of authentic Spanish cooking and it's history. Will definitely be trying the recipes at home. It was a great start to our Spanish holiday.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
