We greatly enjoyed our class and market tour. We had a great group and a fantastic instructor who taught us how to make some spectacular food but also taught us a bit about the Spanish culture. Was a great way to start our trip to Barcelona and would highly recommend it.
My fiance and I took this cooking class and had so much fun. We learned about their traditional tapas and the Spanish culture. So much of their culture comes out through food. The chef was great as was the lady who owns the business. We did the tour that included the market tour, which we are so happy we did.
My daughter and I recently enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of cooking after touring La Boqueria Market with Alfredo and Gretel! We learned how to make paella, potato pancakes, and catalon cream while sipping on wine in their beautiful location in Barcelona. We ate several types of fish we had never tried before. After cooking the food, we sat down and enjoyed eating it, and it was delicious! I highly recommend this experience as a fantastic way to immerse yourself into the culture of Spain. Alfredo and Gretel are enchanting individuals, and the entire experience was amazing!!
The class was the highlight of our trip! The food was incredible and it was great to get a history and cultural lesson along with our tapas tasting. The instructions were very easy to follow and it was great that we were able to be hands on with the techniques. The space was beautiful and spacious and we did not feel crowded. Thank you so much for a great experience
This was a fabulous class. The location is in an older building facing the square - great location plus close to the market. The walk through the market was both informative and fun. The class was great - the chef and interpreter were fun and learned a lot about Spanish cooking in general. I would definitely recommend!
