Excellent! Enjoyed the teacher, fellow participants and venue. Definitely recommend it. Well worth the price.
Wonderful class in a beautiful location. This class began with a walk to La Boqueria, where we were able to see the ingredients we would use. We started with tapas and then began to make paella for our main course. Dessert was crema catalana. We were able to taste some of the foods Barcelona is famous for, potatoes bravas, jamon, manchego cheese, paella and crema catalana. We were served a delicious white wine throughout the class and enjoyed our dinner. The chef, Alfredo and his assistant/ translator Janelle were informative and fun. The food was terrific. I would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic and fun cooking class with Chef Alfredo and Janella. The class starts in the city center, then moves to the Boqueria to learn about the market and then returns to the Royal BCN apartment to cook, eat and drink. The tapas and paella were amazing. I would highly recommend the class. If you have any fish or dairy allergies, it's advisable to let them know ahead of time as they are super accommodating and can adjust the menu to accommodate. Don't plan lunch or early tapas after the class, it's so much food. Also - adolescents are welcome. I brought my 15 year old son who has a strong interest in cooking and he also enjoyed it. I'd ask before bringing children under that age.
This is my second time taking this class with Alfredo and Janella. This is a MUST SEE EXPERIENCE when traveling to Barcelona. Janella takes you to La Boqueria Market. You walk around the market and learn about the history and the vendors who are there. Amazing to see the fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and the care that the vendors take in presenting their wares. Next, you go back to the workshop. A beautiful space that is set up and designed for dining and cooking. You meet Alfredo, who has prepared appetizers that take you to all of the regions of Spain. You are given a history lesson, while you eat and drink good wine. Next, you cook. You chop, you stir, you cream, you eat, you laugh, you drink, you laugh some more and when you're done, you have this beautiful paella, catalan creme and new friends! Do not pass up this experience. It is worth it to return to Barcelona just for this experience--which is what I did!
Such a wonderful experience. The best paella we ate in Barcelona was the one we made at the class. The market was also informative and fun. Do not miss this opportunity.
This was a terrific tour from start to end. From walkingthrough the market and buying some of the ingredients for the meal we were to cook, to meeting our guide and chef, cooking up a great meal and enjoying it with the other guest. A small group of six allowed us all to participate. I was traveling with my 18 year old grandson and he is now an expert at making Catalan cream dessert.
I can't believe that we have not reviewed this trip. If you like cooking, this is fantastic. To learn to cook tortilla the truly Barcelona way there are several regional methods I now know!. A market is a market is a market, nothing new here, but the cookery, just my wife and me with the chef and the guide was superb! A couple of hours of great fun and knowledge.
