6pm Beginning of the experience

Ever wondered how the Tapas were prepared? Join us for this interactive evening, in between a dinner with friends and a tapas cooking class in Barcelona.

We will meet directly at our handmade cooking space -a typical Barcelona flat reconverted to host exclusive gastronomic events- which is near the metro station Hospital Clinic (the exact address will be provided after booking). We will start the evening with a traditional welcome drink and a small Catalan appetiser.

6:15pm Cooking Time

For this Tapas Cooking Experience, we selected the most typical Tapas Catalan and Spanish cuisine have to offer, and we will invite you to cook them live with us. All the ingredients used for the evening are of the best quality, most of them are organic and we source them directly from small local producers. Prepare to taste cold pressed olive oils, gourmet fleur de sel (sea salts), aromatic herbs and of course, a large selection of handpicked organic wines of the finest quality.

We also buy fresh products on the very same day: our bread comes from the best bakery in Barcelona, the seafood is bought fresh from the market, whilst our cheese and charcuterie come from a small local producer who only works using natural methods.

8pm Dinner

This special setting of interactive Tapas cooking class we created encourages conversations around the table and will be an exceptional opportunity for you to taste a wide variety of Mediterranean flavours. We limit our events to 9 guests in order to make every evening a unique and intimate experience.

As you can imagine, our menu follows the seasons and is constantly evolving in time, so we do not provide it beforehand. However, we can adapt it for vegetarians/gluten-free/lactose-free and vegans guests. Simply add a request to your booking to let us know in advance. No food restrictions? Book the event without any request and we’ll come up with a unique seasonal menu!

10:00pm End of the Tapas Cooking Experience!

Please allow yourself some extra time in case- if we’re having fun together, why not as well have the time to enjoy it and forget about the schedules?

We were referred to Barcelona Slow Travel by a friend who had done the paella cooking experience and raved about it. Our group of six travelers booked the tapas cooking class with Cristina and Sacha, and it turned out to be a truly special evening in Barcelona. We were treated to fantastic hospitality and learned so much about the local food and wine culture from them. The tapas dishes were varied and all consisted of the freshest, organic, locally-sourced ingredients. Learning about the dishes and participating in the preparation was great fun. We were served a variety of local, delicious wines, and the food was amazing. This was one of the two best tour experiences we have ever had (the other best-ever tour was the Penedes Wine Tour we did the day before our tapas experience – also offered by Barcelona Slow Travel). If you are spending any time in Barcelona, doing one of the cooking or wine tour experiences with Barcelona Slow Travel is a must! It will be the highlight of your vacation. They are simply the best!

Me and my husband had a great time at the tapas cooking class! We were on our honeymoon and I was looking for something fun, authentic, and relaxing to do and this fit the bill. All of the food and wine were superb. I’m still dreaming of all the olive oils we tried. I would love to come back and try other tours offered by Barcelona Slow Travel. Thanks, Cristina and Guillermo!

I had a wonderful time cooking with Cristina, Guillermo and the other guests. Not only did I learn a lot about Catalan cooking, and was able to enjoy a most delicious dinner, it also felt like I was doing it with family. I can not recommend this strongly enough. Cristina and Guillermo are such incredibly lovely people, with such positive energy about them and their home. Thank you so much for giving me an experience I will always remember!

My husband and I did the Tapas Cooking Experience with Guillermo and Cristina and had a wonderful evening with two of the nicest people in Barcelona. The booking was very easy and communication was prompt. Together, we made a selection of tasty tapas while drinking some of the best local organic wines and vermouth. All the ingredients used were local and organic and, the best of all, full of flavour! Our hosts accommodated their guests’ dietary restrictions, the food was plentiful and the meal was interactive in a lovely apartment in the Eixample. I am still dreaming about the gazpacho and strawberry and basil sorbet. Thank you for a great evening!

We were a group of 10 women celebrating a hen party and we all had a great evening, definitely the highlight of our trip. It was an amazing experience from start to finish with great hosts that made us feel very comfortable. Their passion for food shone through the whole evening. We loved all the fresh organic products and the way they talked us through every aspect of each recipe and where the ingredients were sourced from. I would 100% recommend Barcelona Slow Travel for anyone looking for a different experience whilst in Barcelona.
