We were on a family trip to Barcelona (two adults and 1 teenager & 1 20 something) to visit our niece / daughter who was studying there for the semester. She arranged a morning/afternoon experience with Yves who she had met through an elective on her program. We started off with a fantastic walk through of La Bouqeria Market where... More

Yves is the best! We are are living temporarily in Barcelona and a cooking class with Yves is the first thing we recommend to our guests. He is fantastic with accommodating food allergies and preferences, informative and entertaining, and the food is delicious! A not-to-be-missed experience for anyone visiting BCN!!

What a fantastic evening. We met Chef Yves at the Bouqeria Market. We walk around together while Chef explained to us about the seafood and meats from Spain, and gave us some options as well for us to cook that evening. Yves home is beautiful and quaint, and made us really feel at home. We cooked some great food items... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this special cooking class and feast with Ives. Shopping in La Boqueria Market and then cooking on his rooftop terrace with a full kitchen, overlooking all of Barcelona, was terrific. We are still trying to replicate his delicious seafood paella. We cooked with two other couples. Dinner, wine and conversation as the moon rose over Barcelona with... More

剛參加了Yves 的cooking class, 很不錯。我們約了Yves 在Boqueria Market 見面,Yves 很細心解說不同海鮮的種類和來源,也給我們很多意見選擇不同菜色,最後我們選擇了學習tapas。Cooking class 是在Yves 家,有一個很漂亮的天台,風景優美。我們很享受整個烹餁過程,不但可以嘗試一些地道的西班牙小食,也認識了當地人的生活習慣,值得推薦! Have joined a private cooking class with Yves! We met at the Boqueria Market and Yves was very good at explaining different kinds of seafood, meat and fruits. He also gave us a lot of ideas for cooking paella or tapas and we finally chose to cook tapas. The... More

We met Yves at the market and he explained many things about the local food. There were four in our group with different tastes so we chose tapas instead of an entree dinner so each person could pick a favorite. Yves drove us to his beautiful home where his kitchen is set up to accommodate many cooks. We put on... More

Yves walked us around the market explaining the foods (which ones were most local and fresh) and gave ideas about what we could make with foods that were available that day.
