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!

My husband and I wanted to do something other than the usual Gaudi visits and thought what better way to top off our trip but to bring home a culinary skill! We had an amazing time learning, not just how to cook, but also simple cooking techniques from Chef Alvaro. His passion for cooking and Spanish food is evident, and... More

My first day at Barcelona was spent in a cooking class at BCNkitchen at Mercado de la Boqueria. It was a wonderful experience with chef Alvaro. He imparted his culinary knowledge in the kitchen as well as in the market tour. His tips and the cooking arts were very informative to me who is very new to Spainish cooking although... More

We were at BcnKitchen in October as part of my 50th birthday trip to Barcelona. This was a real highlight of the trip. It was very informative with a visit to the market and the cooking was real good fun. Chef Alvaro was fantastic, very informative and enthusiastic. There was plenty of wine and the food was superb. Also Alvaro's... More

A must for any foodie visiting Barcelona! We explored La Boqueria markets under the wisdom of a Catalonian chef, then spent a chaotic but fabulous 3 hours in the kitchen cooking traditional Catalonian cuisine (my favourites being the paella and creme Catalan!). It has definitely inspired me to incorporate some of these dishes into my repertoire at home. The perfect... More

Taking a tour of the Boqueria market with an expert like our chef Alvaro is a perfect way to begin a visit to Barcelona and Catalonia. Then our group of eight joined him in the kitchen on the third floor of the market where we learned to make a full meal of Catalon specialties including a fabulous seafood paella. This... More

What a great way to start our Barcelona adventure. After a brief orientation, Alvaro took us shopping downstairs. The things you will learn! For instance, did you know Spanish eggs can't be refrigerated and they are labelled with a code which he helps you decrypt. The class goes on for what seems like hours, but the time flies as you...

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.
