    Horea the chef is awesome. He is so fantastic. Caring, humorous, he made us feel like family. The kitchen premises was beautiful. Highly recommended.

    I absolutely adored this experience during my time in Barcelona! There are many things you can do in this beautiful city, but I highly recommend spending some of your time by doing this very fun and interactive cooking class. Alfredo, the owner and chef, was super funny and taught us a lot about Catalonian and Spanish cuisine. It was one of the highlights of my trip!

    My best friend and I LOVED this cooking class. We booked it to immerse ourselves into the culture of Barcelona and this class did just that. Alfredo was absolutely amazing and the class was so interactive! If you are looking for rich history and amazing food, this class is for you!

    Our chef was wonderful and we loved the market! We cooked a traditional Spanish meal complete with tapas, Spanish omelette, paella and custard.

    All the possibility. And none of the delivery. The staff was super nice and the facilities quite Barcelona...on the Plaza Reiel. So picturesque. The market is beautiful. The fruit stands alone will blow you away. But it is a tourist market. Our host, Victor, shared data points but overall meh. We made back to the apartment to enjoy tapas (tasty) and make our menu. We learned several techniques but the there were two very crucial fails. 1) the paella was inedible because the rice wasn't cooked. 2) the Catalina cream was infused milk. Not enough time to set. Both were indicators of lack of experience of our host. Not tasting is a fail. For a home cook or a supposed chef. Likeability aside, I do not recommend.

    We started with a very interesting tour of the market. Showing us the best and worst places to shop. We tried authentic Spanish ham and salami. After we went and tried different foods that are commonly used in Spanish cooking. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. When the cooking started everyone had something to do it was kind of like having a family gathering for that time. We sat down and enjoyed our food all together. All in all a great time!!!!

    The class was fun , food was good and fresh, and we all learned something. That is all we could ask for. I had my younger teens with me for the class and they both really enjoyed being involved in the cooking. My only suggestion would be to maybe do some samples in the market or a little more explanation on which vegetables or clams to pick etc... Both gentlemen running the class were nice and informative. The chef was a joy. Fun class and we will go back to check that market out too.

    This class was one of our favorite things we did while in Barcelona. Upon arrival, they have everything set up, organized, and ready to go. Getting to see the market was such a cool experience! They had a ton of appetizers ready for us and they went over the plan for the day. We had such a laid back and fun time during this class that if we ever go back, we will probably do it again! The food was amazing and wine delicious! Highly recommend this class!
