Beginning of the Private Cooking Class in Barcelona

Meet directly with your chef in her apartment, located in the center of Barcelona (exact address and directions released upon booking). You’ll have the chance to cook in a typical, 19th century Eixample neighborhood flat, full of history and with a beautiful, large, open and modern kitchen. There is also a large planted terrace adjacent to the kitchen in case you want to soak up some quick sun during the class.

Presentation of the menu of the day

Be sure to request us what you would like to cook, or let our chef surprise you with a seasonal menu.All the ingredients used are of the highest quality, most of them are organic and plenty are sourced directly from small local producers or from the best local markets. Your chef also has a strong background in healthy cooking, so she will explain some good tips to bring home to your own cooking.
3

Cooking Time

After being introduced to the ingredients and traditional recipes to be cooked that day, you’ll start cooking with the help of your friendly and knowledgeable chef. Following her traditional family recipes, you’ll create delicious dishes that are typical of the local traditional cuisine. Usually, you’ ll prepare 2 tapas dishes, 1 main dish, and a dessert. Remember that classes are always private, creating an intimate setting and allowing for a lot of attention from your professionally-trained local chef. The classes are therefore adapted to both beginner and more advanced cooks, as well as chefs interested in discovering Catalan and Spanish cuisine.

Lunch or Dinner

Finally, it will be time to taste your dishes- you’ll be amazed by the exciting flavors of the Catalan and Spanish foods that you’ll have made! We’ll be sure to open some handpicked local wines of the finest quality to celebrate your creations. Just like a Barcelona family, we’ll sit at the table and eat the dishes together while exchanging stories and laughter. Ready to have a real Catalan experience?

The highlight of our Barcelona Trip!
My husband and I spent a wonderful morning in Nuria’s family kitchen preparing a Catalan Chicken Paella and a gluten free apple desert. Nuria was a very patient teacher who explained that her guests come with all levels of cooking expertise and hoped that everyone would leave with some valuable cooking tips. We cooked with high quality food and enjoyed the results with her husband and daughter in her spotless home. Such gracious hosts!

Experiencia única!
Somos de Puerto Rico y estábamos visitando a Barcelona por primera vez. Queríamos tener una experiencia diferente donde pudiéramos conocer sobre la cultura catalana y que mejor que a través de la cocina. Nuria nos recibió en su hermoso hogar y disfrutamos una tarde muy bonita. No tan sólo aprendimos recetas catalanas y su confección, también aprendimos sobre la cultura y tradiciones catalanas. Los platos riquísimos y con ingredientes orgánicos y frescos. Para los que lleven un estilo de alimentación saludable es muy recomendable. Mis esposo y yo nos sentimos cómo en casa, por todas las atenciones recibidas. Nuria fue muy amable y hasta nos ayudó con otras actividades que querríamos hacer en Barcelona y teníamos dudas de donde realizarlas. En fin fue una experiencia única y diferente. Quedamos muy satisfechos, deseando regresar a Barcelona y nos encantaría volver a compartir experiencias como estas.
