Barcelona Cooking Class


  • Timings are flexible for your spanish coooking class, so ask us about times available! Remember eating times in Spain for both lunch and dinner are later than in most countries.
  • The class is held right in the heart of Old Town Barcelona, so you will handy for arriving and getting on to your next activity!
  • You will visit the Mercado de la Boqueria to get the freshest ingredients possible!
  • First off you will learn to make a sangria, that delicious sunny drink that accompanies the tapas perfectly!  Our chef will make sure you have the ingredients and knowledge to make a delightful sangria!
  • Suitably armed and fortified with sangria, our chef will show you how to make some Spanish Tapas. Now, you can snack and drink your way through the paella part of the session!
  • Once the paella is ready, you will savour its delights and feel pretty well fed and happy with the world!
  • Instruction by an expert for approximately 2 hours on Spanish cooking.  Specifically paella, sangria and several of the most celebrated tapas dishes.
  • At least 4 glasses of sangria.
  • You will eat the equivalent of a full lunch or dinner.
  • Price depends on your group size and the time of year. In general, the larger your group the less you will each pay !
  • This activity is a cross between a cooking class and a demonstration. In the interests of safety, participation is kept to a minimum, as the mix of virtually unlimited sangria and sharp kitchen utensils is not always the most harmonious !
  • Tapas in Spain are usually eaten standing at the bar, and more often than not with cocktails sticks rather than cutlery!
  • Did you know snails, beans, rabbit, chicken and seafood are often  included in genuine paella (which originates in Valencia) ?
  • Please let us know if you have special diet requirements for your group.
  • We will encourage you to learn and try a variety of tapas including the local favourites, our guide will of course adapt to your taste – it’s your own tour!
