About
Rather than ordering tapas and paella at Barcelona’s restaurants, cook them for yourself with a local chef. Learn about local produce at La Boqueria market before visiting a teaching kitchen to prep tapas, mix sangria, and cook a paella. Sit down to eat them with your fellow cooks and opt to enjoy a “chupito” shot at a bar to cap your experience. A choice of time slots provides handy flexibility.

Highlights
  • Learn to make tapas, paella, and sangria at a Barcelona cooking experience
  • Don’t just order three classic dishes: discover how to make them
  • Visit La Boqueria market, enjoy a cooking class, and savor what you’ve made
  • Choice of time slots, with “chupito” shot at a nearby bar to finish
What to expect
  • Meet the chef at a central Barcelona location, then start with the fresh basics of Spanish cuisine, collecting fresh seafood from the local vendors and producers at La Boqueria, one of Barcelona’s most famous markets. From the market, continue to a cooking school in El Born district, where you find an open kitchen, bar, and restaurant-style seating. Pour your first glass of sangria for the evening, then start preparing a range of tapas, or pintxos, classic Spanish small plates that are perfectly paired with wine. With a chef cooking alongside you, start preparing the traditional paella, then as the rice dish simmers on a low flame, you can learn to mix your own sangria at a short drinks-making workshop. When the paella is done, sit down to the meal you’ve prepared, savoring the rich flavor of the rice and seafood (a non-seafood meal option is served by the chef for those who don’t eat seafood). And if you’re not ready to finish the night, you're invited to a nearby bar, where you’ll be treated to a free "chupito," or shot, and enjoy drink specials throughout the evening.

Paella and Sangria with Mara
Oct 2021 • Couples
Mara was incredible, so enthusiastic and charming. Everybody chipped in together to make the best paella I've ever had. The experience included a huge amount of knowledge and passion surrounding the history and culture of the dish.
You'll make friends, you'll eat great food, drink beautiful sangria and have the best time. Cannot reccomend highly enough!

Entertaining host, tasty food, fine sangria, lots to learn!
What a fantastic experience with an entertaining chef, Fernando, who was a welcoming and fun host. Would recommend this course as its a laugh and also full of useful cooking tips, not to mention a healthy sangria to accommodate the tasty food throughout the class😉

Middle of the road
We enjoyed the experience but were a bit disappointed with the food. The tapas we made were nothing more than meat and cheese on bread. The paella was better but the seafood was a bit sparse. As others put in there review, we never received the promised recipes.

Amazing and complete class
This has been a great and complete cooking class. From buying the food/ingredients at one of the most famous Market to cooking Paella’s (plus tapas and sangrias). I would recommend this trip.

Worst experience. Cheapest ingredients. We never received the recipes which were promised. Sangria and Paella didn't taste good. Cannot recommend.
