Thanks so much to Fernando who is a consummate professional. Even when we had a little miscommunication he was so accommodating. The class itself was fun and the paella, pinxos and sangria were delicious. Great night was had by all. Three long Spanish cheers to...More

We had a wonderful experience. Our host Nydia was very friendly and fun. She made the experience better and made a really mean paella! It was delicious! The trip to the market was lovely and there were many products we wanted to try. We sampled...More

I recently went on a group tour to Barcelona and our tour director organized this cooking experience for us. We had about 26 people so I was worried how it would work out initially. It turned out to be a blast! We were split into...More

There were 20-odd people in my Monday evening group. After following the chef around in the market watching her buy the ingredients, we headed to the kitchen. Here a tasteless sangria was served with 1 tapas (bread, tomato, ham, peppers, cheese). We then moved onto...More

Great night out on how to make a true Paella. Had a good night meeting new people from all over the world. Only those that really wanted to get in on the action cooked, I thought that we might have all had our own group,...More

This was our 2nd time doing this "tour". Both times were a lot of fun. The food was very good & the Sangria never ended. We've always sat with a fun group & had a great time.

This class had more than 30 people in it and was more a "demonstration" than an "interactive" or "hands-on" class. The kitchen was much too crowded and most of us could barely see. In this class, making "tapas" consisted of slicing some cheese and meats...More

Fernando was the best! He was very funny, friendly, and offered excellent tips for cooking and preparing food that I still use. He also did a wonderful job of getting the group excited and touring La Boqueria market. This experience was a way to enjoy...More

This tour was a colossal waste of money. The first half hour started with us walking in La Boqueria, which is entirely too hectic for a group of about 30 people. We couldn’t hear anything and spent the entire time trying to keep up with...More

It really depends on what your expectations are, if you want a indepth, more serious cooking class then this is not for you. We had 28 people, way too big a group to negotiate going to the markets and buying produce, then heading to the...More

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
