DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for a unique private cooking class in Barcelona, allowing you to truly experience the Catalan and Spanish gastronomy? Let us set up a unique cooking class for you in a beautiful modern, professional kitchen in the center of Barcelona. We have different spaces available, and no matter where we’ll take you, we’ll always be your chef and offer you a 100% tailor-made cooking class you won’t find in any regular cooking school.

We’ll make sure you learn about the local food traditions, enjoy and take away precious memories from this truly unique cooking experience. You can customize your menu between our menu options, choosing a combination of 2 tapas dishes for starters, 1 main dish, and 1 dessert to be cooked. Using healthy, traditional family recipes and local, seasonal and organic ingredients, you’ll discover the real Barcelona cuisine, as well as a range of cooking tips.

The cooking time will be of approximately 2,5 hours, and then another hour will be dedicated for lunch or dinner. Just like a Barcelona family, we’ll sit at the table and eat the dishes together while exchanging stories and laughter. As we also specialize in wine tours in Barcelona, we’ve made a selection of the finest regional small batch organic wines and will offer them to you both when cooking and as food pairings to celebrate your creations.

Remember that classes are always private, creating an intimate setting and allowing for a lot of attention from your chef. The classes are therefore adapted to both beginner and more advanced cooks, as well as professional chefs interested in discovering Catalan and Spanish cuisine.

A memorable Christmas Cooking Class!

We had a private cooking class to celebrate Christmas evening in Barcelona. Along with our children aged 15,11 and 8 we discovered new recipes and had a blast.
This class was just a lot of hands on fun and Cristina and Guillermo are great hosts and instructors. There is a warmth and personal touch that they bring that I believe larger operators cannot provide. This is their business and their passion for what they do and their enjoyment of it, is evident. I wish them much success and recommend them highly.

Wow! Amazing Food and Amazing people!
We kicked off our trip to Barcelona w/ a market tour and cooking class making 5 tapas. Our guide was Guillermo and he was absolutely fantastic. He was engaging, talkative, and very educational. We toured the Santa Caterina market and really enjoyed seeing all the vendors and market options. He explained what to look for in all the foods and food stands we walked by. His focus on slow food locally sourced and in season helped identify what we would make for our tapas. The best part of the experience was definitely cooking the tapas. Before the class 2 of the 5 tapas sounded good to me. The others seemed fine, but nothing amazing. By the time we were done, every tapa was blow me away amazing. The egg & potato tortilla was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The mixed vegetables w/ romesco sauce was surprisingly rich and decadent. Even the classic Catalan tomato bread we made was the best we had all week. The quality of food and the little added touches made every bite an experience. Guillermo the whole time was helpful and engaging everyone in the group. He kept each person active while keeping us moving along. At the end of the week our friends said this was the highlight of the trip for them and we agree. Book Guillermo and his class – it’s totally worth it!

Wonderful and authentic experience!
Guillermo was an excellent teacher and gave us a real hands on cooking experience with great conversation. All of the food was farm to table. It was definitely a highlight of our trip and was the best food we had in Barcelona! I highly recommend.

An incredible way to end our trip in Spain!
My mother, daughter and I had such an amazing time at the Cooking Class hosted by Guillermo and Cristina! We enjoyed learning about the fresh and local ingredients they use and how to make Cristina’s families wonderful recipes. My daughter tried squid for the first time and loved it! They were also very accommodating in their meal planning given I am a vegetarian. All the food we prepared was so fresh and delicious. We can’t say enough about what an incredible experience this was and how much fun we had. Thank you for such a fun night!!

This is a” hands on” cooking experience, where you will learn about Catalonian authentic products, where only the best, locally and seasonal products will be used to prepare all sort of different tapas, and all well paired with great Catalonian wines.
Guillermo and Cristina offer and amazing culinary experience.
Best way to spend an evening in Barcelona!!!!

Highlight of our trip!

If you ask any of my children what the best part of our vacation to Spain was they would say “cooking with Guillermo”. This authentic experience is not to be missed. Guillermo was not only a great chef/cooking instructor but he was beyond patient/helpful with our kids. I would say he may have even missed his calling as a teacher. Guillermo went above and beyond to cater to my daughters walnut allergy. We all had a fantastic time and plan to do this again if we are back in Barcelona.

Amazing! Would recommend to everyone visiting Barcelona!
I was on a trip with friends who were visiting Barcelona after tripping around most of the country. We were after an authentic experience that we could take some skills away as well and so very grateful to have found this experience!! Guillermo was an absolutely fabulous host and taught us so much about the local produce in Spain. We purchased ingredients and took it back for us to prepare. A very hands on experience accompanied with further information and wine! You won’t need anything but yourself for four hours of fun.

Another great experience with Barcelona Slow Travel!
This time, my sister and I did the cooking class offered through Barcelona Slow Travel. Our teacher did a great job of creating and helping us execute a delicious meal of Spanish favorites. She put her own spin on traditional recipes to address health concerns. We had a great conversation about all sorts of topics as we enjoyed the fruits of our labor — and a bottle of wine. Cristina with BST, as always, was fantastic to work with. She helped me with some special requests and had great recommendations on things to do, restaurants, etc. They have really expanded their offerings, but if you don’t see exactly what you want, contact Cristina and see what ideas she has. I can’t recommend Barcelona Slow Travel enough!
