Know More about this tour

Begin your Spanish cooking odyssey with a guided tour through the La Boqueria market. Here, your chef will collect a range of fresh seafood ingredients and introduce you to the many delights the market has to offer your senses.

Your group continue on to your cooking school in the El Born district, only a short walk away. This school is equipped with an open kitchen, workshop bar, and comfortable restaurant-style seating. First, create your own pintxos espanolas and enjoy a tasty range of the classic Spanish finger foods accompanied with plenty of sangria. Meet and mingle with your group.

Under the guidance of your chef, you will then help make traditional paella. Prepare the ingredients involved and then fire up the gas. While your main dish is simmering away, your chef will lastly host a sangria making workshop, allowing you to mix your own fresh and fruity jugs of the classic Spanish refreshment to enjoy with your meal.

Once your paella is done, sit down and enjoy your hardwork. Your chef speaks English and Spanish and will cater to any food allergies or special requirements. For those who do not eat seafood, an alternative main meal is cooked by the chef and served with the Paella. Recipes and cooking tips will be handed out to group at the end. Afterwards you will be invited to a nearby bar for a free chupito and drink specials available to your group all night.

  • This tour was a lot of fun! We had an amazing group of people and we had the chance to interact with each other while cooking and preparing the food/drinks. Our chef had a great sense of humor and was very informative!!

  • Well worth the money! Includes market tour at La Boqueria, tapas and sangria, instruction on how to prepare seafood for some delicious paella. Chef was very informative! 3 Hours and involves a fair amount of walking as you meet in one location, then travel to the market, then finally to the kitchen. Met some new friends in the tour : Great experience.

  • Great meal, excellent cook and fun time

  • Great class with fun people and plentiful food and drink.

  • This was one of the greatest experiences while on vacation. The day of the class, just hours before I told my fiance we will be eating Paella tonight. I then went and told him that in 1 hour he will be introduced to a chef that will be teaching him how to make the Paella. At first he was not please, but later I was so surprised how engaged he was in the class. The chef was awesome and the sangria along with the appetizers were great. We had such an AMAZING night.

  • This WAS FUN! But only for teens and adults, I think. We took a short visit to La Boqueria market and tasted some local specialities. And we learned how to make sangria and drank a lot too!, make some tapas and most of all, cook paella. The best thing was meeting people from other countries, cooking together, sharing the dinner and the just chatting the night away. A really fun memory of Barcelona!

  • Fun and well worth it.

  • The experience was unique. My son and I enjoyed cooking together. From going to the market to buy the ingredients to making our very first paella together, priceless! The Chef made it look easy, amazing!

  • This was everything we wanted and more!

  • This was hands down the highlight of our time in Barcelona! Chef Andrei was super knowledgeable and a great teacher. We really enjoyed the trip to the market - everything was so incredibly fresh! The shellfish was all still alive! We picked up some great selections of goodies and then walked back to the venue where all the magic took place! Those who wanted to help cook washed up, put on aprons and closely followed the chef's instructions. The final result was the most delicious paella i've ever had! We tried other paella's during our time in Spain and none could compare. He could sell this recipe! The sangria was just okay - but we drank enough of it that we didn't care after a while! We really enjoyed getting to know the other guests and left full, tipsy and really happy! It was an amazing way to start our holiday! I can't recommend this tour enough!
