While I was intrepid walking up the stairs to the class, I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish! I felt welcome and included, even as a solo traveler. The short walk to the market was fun, especially for those who had not yet been there. My favorite part was our host helping us to discern higher quality of jamon iberico. The tasting and cultural context of the regional tapas was yummy and informative, plus a good icebreaker amongst the guests. The chef did a great job of including everyone, including children, in the cooking process of our classic Spanish dishes of tortilla espanola, paella and crema catalana. The space for the class included not just a preparation area, but also a seating area to dine. Highly recommend this class!

Absorbed so much of Barcelona culture on a first visit in an information-filled, very enjoyable tour of La Boqueria, then back to a lovely cooking/dining location over La Place Real to learn, cook & enjoy new Catalonian recipes, as well as a pre-cooking tapas meal prepared by the host (all with plenty of Spanish wine!) Well worth the price. Highly recommend!

On our recent trip to Barcelona my wife and I did the Private Cooking Class and Guided Tour of the close by La Boqueria Market. We only had a small group (10 people from memory) and it was nice and intimate. I had read a lot of bad review from other companies offering the same type of experience as number were 20+. A small group allowed us to all prepare and cook. The chef spoke fluent Spanish whilst his helper translated to english (can't remember names....sorry!). They were both very informative and down to earth which made us all very comfortable. The best park was eating everything we cooked as our lunch with wine and coffee also. Setting and kitchen were amazing also. Would highly recommend.

This was an amazing experience. Great insiders tour of La Boqueria followed by chef explaining to us the different foods of Spain. With the explanation, he had examples for us to try.

Chef has many years of experience having run and owned a restaurant for many years and it shows. Had a great time with the cooking. Two 13 year old boys were in our group, they were engaged and seem to have a great time.

having done many cooking classes in other cities, Bali, Nice, this is by far the best one. Thank you!

Before the hands on cooking, we got a visit to the market. It's very nice because we can see their traditional products. At the class the chef is very nice and of course, the recipe is very wonderful. You can experience the real taste of Barcelona!

Janella was incredible - gracious, funny, honest, giving, and an incredible cook. It certainly helped that our fellow group participants bonded very quickly, and fast forward to post class with us all hanging out for another 5 hours in the gothic quarter getting to know each other even more! I have taken cooking classes all around the world and this is by far the best one I have done. :) You won't be disappointed.

This was one of the best highlights of my trip to Spain!! The chef made learning how to make the seafood Paella so much fun that we all had a blast!!!! I HIGHLY reccomend this class as you won't be dissapointed!! Many in our group didn't eat seafood and still enjoyed the process of making the paella. The best was of course the dessert! This made made even the clueless cook look like a professional!!!

We were fortunate to have Janella leading our tour and cooking class. We began with the walking tour of the Boqueria Market. It was extremely interesting to see things from a non-tourist standpoint. Afterward we went to the kitchen where we took a mini-gastronomic tour of Spain, sampling tapas from each of the different regions. From there, Janella helped us prep for four different dishes, including paella. Everything was delicious. My only criticism would be that there was so much delicious food that we were not able to finish everything.

This is really one of the best experiences I have had in live. Great ambience, great food and lots of fun. The chef is just a great and funny guy. He helped us cook with a smile, nice explanations about where the different ingredients are coming from. We were with a group of 7 persons, and I will repeat it for sure when I go to Barcelona!
