A lovely way to spend 4 hours with the lovely Angels, chef, who guided us through the market shopping for fish head etc. Then a very hands-on cook of 4 courses, with wine in hand, and lots of help! Highly recommended.

This was fun! The day started with a trip to the market to purchase supplies, then back to the kitchen. The kitchen is set up as a true training kitchen. Our chef, Maria, was a sweetheart and made this a truly memorable day.

Started at the market to buy the ingredients. Then on to prepare various dishes with paella being the highlight. Tasks were divided up, wine flowed and a few hours later we had a great meal. Great international group where everyone - cook and non cook - got into the action. Great way to spend a few hours over the lunchtime.... More

We took a 30 person American group to Espai Boisa for 3 hours of cooking and all totally enjoyed the activity (including the men). Upon our arrival, we were handed a glass of wine and then split into 3 groups for a very hands-on creative cooking class. The groups rotated so we did it all. They included a special twist... More

Our group of 28 took a class here and learned and laughed with the awesome staff. We produced some excellent dishes and competed in an iron chef competition. Usual clientele are actual local people learning to cook, so I think it was fun for the staff as well as it was for all of us. Hard to locate, just off... More

I visited this on a business trip team building evening. Prior to our cooking we had a guided trip round the Food Market in La Rambalas. Chef Eugen had prepared the dishes for us to cook tapas. We were a large group and had the restaurant to ourselves. We were split into teams and competition was strong. During this Chef... More

Did an Indian Bread workshop here and we learnt to make three types of bread and take some home to cook later. And got a lovely meal at the end. Great teacher, super cute place in an easy to find location. Well recommended.

On our last day in Barcelona we spent the afternoon with Chef Eugen and his assistant, Monica, for the Paella and Tapas cooking class. As a group of four friends, we were thrilled to arrive and learn that we had the kitchen and the staff completely to ourselves. Eugen had shopped prior to our arrival for all of the fresh,... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
