Welcome to Barcelona!
We are passionate about cooking and we would love to share our knowledge about Spanish and Catalan Gastronomy with all like-minded foodies and travellers interested in Spanish cuisine. In our class, we not only teach you best in cooking practices but also introduce to you the various aspects of Spanish food culture.

This is a hands-on cooking experience that focuses on the famous Paella. We will meet in the neighbourhood of Gracia, one of the most popular neighbourhoods in Barcelona, and there your Paella cooking experience shall begin.

In this session held at our well-equipped and comfortable cooking space you will learn to prepare the Paella from scratch with wonderful fresh ingredients, and after that you will sit down to enjoy a 3-course meal paired with a bottle of Spanish wine.

And if you would like to visit our fantastic markets in Barcelona, there is also a Hands-on Paella Cooking Workshop with Market Tour by us that you can consider.


We propose a 3 course Menu composed of:
- Traditional tapas as a starter (perhaps some bruschetta)
- Main course will be the delicious Paella (meat-based or seafood-based)
- End with a traditional dessert

But, if you are interested to taste or learn how to cook any specific Spanish or Catalan dish, let us know in advance, we will try to acommodate. The menu will be cooked with fresh products from the market.

While cooking and dining you will enjoy a bottle of Spanish wine or some beer.
In case of food allergies or intolerances, please tell us and we will provide alternatives.


The cooking place is walking distance from many important sites in Barcelona such as Gaudi's Casa Batlló or Casa Milà (La Pedrera), and can be reached by all kinds of public transport.

I'm passionate about cooking and I understand gastronomy in a broad sense, as an axis around which




I went along to Sonia's cooking class with a friend to learn how to make an authentic paella. Sonia took us on a short walking tour to the markets and pointed out many points of interest and gave us a good insight into Barcelona. On our return to the kitchen we were treated to a selection of tapas and shown how to make them. Delicious! Then onto the business of cooking. Sonia had already done the prep so we could get straight into making a meat based (our choice) paella and learn the secrets of making a really good one. After it was ready we sat down and ate our beautiful creation with a glass of wine. Sonia then walked with us to the main street where she showed us how to get home and also see some spectacular Gaudi houses. The class was excellent and Sonia was delightful and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended!!



We had a fabulous time preparing Paella with Sonia. She is taught us how to make this wonderful dish, along with various traditional tapas. We highly recommend taking this class. Sonia is very kind and informative as we were able to gather more travel tips and future classes to take on our next trip back to Barcelona.



We had a wonderful family cooking class with Sonia learning to make Paella, Pan Con tomate, and other Tapas and desert. Before that she walked us around the local neighborhood and market. The afternoon ended with a really nice relaxed dinner and wine. Highly recommend this as a family activity where you can have some more intimate exposure to Catalan flavor. Sonia is lovely. Thank you for a great finale to our stay in Barcelona.



I planned a morning with Sonia Puig cooking Catalan food. Sonia is an excellent chef, teacher, and expert on Barcelona. Sonia took us to a neighborhood market and explained about various Catalan products and shopping at the local market. We then learned how to prepare some Spanish food which were so good. Sonia speaks excellent English and was very informative about activities in Barcelona and the surrounding area. She gave us many recommendations on restaurants and cultural activities to do. She is very personable and the experience was well worth my time in a city with more activities than time to do. I would highly recommend cooking with Sonia.
