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.

My cooking classes are half-day classes, from 10.30 am-2.30 pm, during which we prepare a main meal, 2 fresh market tapas dishes and a dessert. The ingredients I use are always high-quality, seasonal, fresh, local and organic if possible. With the meal we will enjoy a wine that will pair nicely with the food.

Students of all cooking levels and ages are welcome and I make sure everybody is engaged in a fun and friendly environment. I also welcome students with different dietary requirements, adapting the dishes but making sure they get the full taste of Catalan flavors. Vegetarians and Vegans are welcome!

My classes are personalized, unique, intimate and all in all a delicious experience. Come and celebrate healthy, traditional Catalan cooking with me!


The menu I decide depending on the season, dietary requirements and I make sure all dishes balance nicely together. Also the menu can be customized for private classes:

Below see some dishes I could make as a main dish:
- Meatballs with langoustines, a special recipe from my grandmother
- Paella or rice casserole, surf and turf
- “Suquet de peix”, Catalan fish stew made with white fish and potatoes

Below see some dishes I could make as a main dish for Vegetarians/Vegans:
- Paella or rice casserole
- Chickpeas with “samfaina sauce”, a typical Catalan sauce
- “Empedrat” Salad, summer salad with special white beans and fresh vegetables

Below see some dishes I could make as a tapa:
- Rosted artichokes with "Romesco" sauce
- Spinach “a la Catalana”
- Potatoes with string beans, wild mushrooms and “allada” sauce

Below see some dishes I could make as a dessert:
- “Menjar blanc”, medieval custard dessert made with homemade almond milk
- My birthday apple cake
- Peach flan

Note: This is a gluten free kitchen, so any intolerant to gluten or celiac is welcome in my cooking class.


My place is within walking distance from Plaça de Catalunya and from Plaça Espanya.

My mother is an amazing cook and prepares everything from scratch, so I was eating delicious




from Illinois

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!

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.
