My name is Núria and I offer cooking classes at my home in the center of Barcelona.
I want to share with you my favorite Catalan dishes. These are dishes handed down from my grandmother to my mother to me and among them are also recipes from other grandmothers in Catalonia. Some of these dishes can be made dairy and gluten free to suit your special dietary needs.
My classes are personalized, unique, intimate and all in all a delicious experience. Come and celebrate healthy, traditional Catalan cooking with me!
My classes consist of a main dish and, depending on the size of the group, there will also be one or two fresh market tapas, and a dessert. All the ingredients are of very high quality and are seasonal, fresh and local, organic if available, and respectful of the environment. With the meal we will enjoy a wine that will pair nicely with the food.
My place is within walking distance from Plaça de Catalunya and from Plaça Espanya.
We so enjoyed cooking and dining with Núria in her fabulous apartment which she & her husband renovated for cooking and entertaining. She was very personable and flexible, yet also organized and well prepared for our afternoon of cooking. It is clear she has a passion for the freshest ingredients and has grown up in the Catalan culture with the cooking methods of her grandmother. She has also lived in NYC, so knows about ingredients in the US. In addition to cooking a great meat & fish paella with the freshest ingredients, we learned to make romesco sauce for a very special salad and a wonderful tapas dish with chic peas & wild mushrooms. Núria has excellent knowledge of nutrition and taught us about thickening agents that can be more digestible than some we traditionally used as we worked on dessert. It's clear she enjoys cooking and teaching others. So glad we did this. It was both education and FUN!
We enjoyed a delicious meal full of tasty and delicious recipes…. Introduce yourself in the tradition of cooking and eating in a large table drinking good wine and tasting delicious self made tapas.
I really enjoyed my cooking class with Nuria. I felt very welcome in her home and was inspired by her beautiful kitchen. I liked being actively involved in preparing the meal and I am looking forward to cooking some of the dishes in my own home! Nuria is knowledgeable and passionate about food. I highly recommend taking one of her classes.
Nuria is great not only at explaining the dishes themselves, but also at mixing in explanations of healthy cooking.
