The area
Address
Neighborhood: La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.

Clear highlight of our two week trip to Spain!
Oct 2019 • Couples
This market tour and cooking class was one of our favorite activities during our two week trip to Spain. It was a fantastic way to learn about the culture. Stefano was such a wonderful host - sharing tips and tricks about the area and cooking. While there were five of us cooking - and we had a lot to prepare - he ensured that we all knew how to prepare the entire meal, even if we weren’t actively preparing that dish that day. We have made all of the dishes since we’ve returned home, thanks to Stefano’s guidance and the easy-to-follow recipes that he emailed afterwards. Thanks for such a great experience!!

Amazing, fun, delicious experience!

Chef Alvaro was awesome! He was personable, knowledgeable, and a great teacher. We felt like friends and hope to take more classes with him and bcnkitchen in the future. The tour of the vibrant local market was fabulous. We just made the delicious Spanish Omelette (tortilla) and pan con tomate for brunch. Nothing is left. The wine is all gone too ;)

Wish it were better
Dec 2019 • Family
I wish this review was better. The chef was very friendly and hospitable. Our classmates were also fun and made the experience better. However, the actual cooking class wasn’t impressive. We started with an hour market tour of La Bocqueria. I wish we could have learned more about the various food items offered, though I recognize that with the crowds, it’s not an easy ask. The class then prepared several items, ranging from paella to gazpacho to Catalan custard. Maybe it’s our tastes, but the food just didn’t turn out well. We’ve had better classes elsewhere with more helpful tips. And the wine served was awful. We aren’t picky, but suggest not offering any wine at all rather than something so poor. This might be a little overly critical, as the class itself was enjoyable. It’s just that we’ve had a lot of other cooking experiences that were better

Such incredible insights into Catalunya and Spanish culture and how to move through the market like a local. Amelia was a wealth of knowledge, grace and fun.

Stefano helped make our trip memorable, meaningful, unique and fun
Oct 2019
So much fun and definitely worth every Euro!

Market tour was informative. We learned about different seafood, types of ham, etc.

Once we returned to the classroom, Stefano was on the ball! Classically trained in Italian cooking, he's honed his skills all over the world. This was not a demonstration class--lots of participation. And when you weren't chopping or stirring something right (perhaps distracted by refilling your wine or chatting with a friend?), he'd definitely correct you.

The meal was delicious and Stefano a gracious host. Since returning stateside, my friend has cooked everything we made in our class! I haven't yet, but am definitely using the tips Stefano shared about chopping garlic, peppers, etc. in my everyday life.

Thanks, Stefano!

Chef Al is clearly knowledgeable about Spanish cooking, proper technique and local culture. He was able to balance the needs of our group with expertise, energy and humor. An added plus was a rich table conversation that was inclusive and lively. A high point of our trip - a must for all visitors!

One of the best cooking classes I have attended! I've done two classes with BCN Kitchen and each time it has been amazing and the food turned out great.

Absolutely fantastic four hours with Amelia at BCN Kitchen
Oct 2019
Myself, my teenage daughter and her friend all spent an amazing four hours with Amelia (and 8 others) at BCN Kitchen in El Born cooking a range of Spanish dishes and then having a sit down meal together as a group.
We started off with a group trip to the local market which is much more authentic (and reasonably priced!) than La Boqueria and Amelia talked us through how to choose good ingredients, especially fish. Lots of us bought saffron to take home as it is very inexpensive in Spain and some of us bought local cheeses and meats as well (vacuum-packed means they don't have to be refrigerated). When we returned to BCN kitchen, everyone got involved in the slicing, dicing and cooking and Amelia was very good at ensuring we all had jobs to do. No one stood around bored and every step of the cooking process was explained for each of the dishes (we will be emailed the recipes later). Although one might imagine chaos with 11 of us in the kitchen, it was a smooth operation in a spacious area and everyone in the group (singles, couples and families ranging in age from 11-about 55) was friendly and very social. Wine and water were provided and added to the congenial environment.
We prepared gazpacho, Spanish tortillas, tomato bread, paella and creme Catalan...to finish off! After about 2 hours of cooking, we sat down to eat together and what an amazing meal we had!
I have no doubt that everyone involved had a wonderful time. Amelia was the perfect hostess and teacher and we all left with lots of new ideas for Spanish cooking, full bellies and smiles on our faces.
