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.

  • Terrible! I would give this ZERO stars if possible. Quite honestly there isn't enough room here to discuss all the problems with this cooking class but I will be contacting Viator directly to discuss it.

  • We met in a bit of a dive bar, fun. Had a drink. Went to another bar like kitchen and learned to make sangria and cook paella in a giant pan. Chef made it fun and paella ended up being delicious. We drank too much sangria and made a lot of friends. Pretty great.

  • We had a great night. Our group had 22 people. I think the experience you have is very dependent on other people in the group. The food was lovely the sangria even better.

  • This tour was fun and interactive. We are now specialists at Paella and Sangria

  • This was very bad!!! First of all, we had to wait in a very tiny and dark bar for 20 minutes just so they could sign up more people on the spot. Then, next thing we realize, there were 30 people in the class with only one chef whom we can't hear/understand as the group was so big and he's very soft spoken. He then tried walk us to the market and said that for those who got lost, to meet back at the bar in 20 minutes. The 30 of us tried so hard to follow him to the market but the group was way too big and the market was way too crowded we ended up just walking back to the bar to wait for him but he never showed up!!!! After waiting for 30 minutes, we decided to leave and never really took the class despite having fully paid for the class. Sooooo poorly organized and way oversold. Do NOT take this class!!!!!

  • This was such a fun night. Was traveling Solo and met up with some very fun people for a very fun evening. We shopped for some of the ingredients then went and actually help prepare the Paella then got to eat it along with Sangria then were taught how to make Sangria as well. Great social, yummy evening spent with travelers around the world. Highly recommend this.

  • Mixed feelings about this. Waited at least three quarters of an hour for the tour to start. Huge group of 27 people. Walk to the market from meeting point not far but walk to cooking school quite a slog. Fernando and Sayah nice people and paella was delicious. Price was good.

  • So here's the deal. I love Viator because it usually directs me to small great tours. But this time....ah. It was a huge group, I want to say about 20 total. Cooking was essentially just chopping and then letting it sit and dividing it in groups so that not everyone even gets to participate. And the end result....ah. It wasn't even that tasty. The market tour, remember I said it was about a group of 20 if not more. We got quickly pushed through the already crowded space and bought a bag of shrimp. That's it. No admiring the culture, talking about the stalls, just a quick shove through and then we were done. The sangria, terrible. Really is sangria suppose to have Fanta? I was drinking the stuff the whole time I was in the country and it never taste this bad. Overall a waste of time and money. Kind of sad about it cause see the last cooking class I did in Italy through Viator was amazing. From start to finish the food and company, including the view of a basilica from the Chefs apartment where we cooked! Looks like I better be more careful choosing my next cooking adventure through this site.

  • This was our best meal in Spain. It started with a meet up at the Travel Bar, walk to the cooking studio, and a seating with tapas and Sangria. We then were given a step by step hands on guide how to cook Paella followed by a meal of Paella that was the best we had in all of Spain. We highly recommend as a great value, fun time and memorable experience!

  • The market was closed due to a public holiday and we were not informed of that in advance which was a real shame. There are a lot of people in the class but you do have the chance to do some cooking there's one station that everyone is watching / cooking at. Food was delicious and it was definitely a fun night out in Barcelona.
