DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for a unique private cooking class in Barcelona, allowing you to truly experience the Catalan and Spanish gastronomy? We have several options to offer you a unique experience, be it in a cooking space at the center of Barcelona, in the comfort of your home or in one of our incredible locations just outside of town!

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 a 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. Handpicked, local organic wines of the finest quality will be offered as food pairing to celebrate your creations.

Remember that classes are always private, creating an intimate setting and allowing for a lot of attention from your friendly local 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.


LOCATIONS

We have several options available to create a unique experience for you:

1. Professional Cooking Space in Barcelona: 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.

Length: 3,5 hours. Available every day, morning and evening, on request only.

2. Private Chef at Home: we have reinvented the concept of dinner parties with our Chef at Home Cooking Experience. You get all the fun of a cooking class in the intimacy of your home, apartment or villa, plus a wonderful dinner with your closed ones. And the cleaning is on us so that you can relax with a glass of wine after a wonderful dinner. We can bring everything needed for the class so you’ll just need enough space for you and your group.

Length: 4 hours. Available every day, morning and evening, on request only.

3. Cooking Class at a Winery: if you’re into food and wine, you’ll love that option! We’ll take you to a small boutique, family-run organic winery for a unique cooking class. Each step of the class gets paired with a different wine from the winery, and then you can have lunch with the winery owner as well as a visit of the estate. If you want to get all in, we highly recommend you let us take you to a second boutique organic winery beforehand for an exclusive visit with the winery owner, making this experience an extended day trip you will remember for long.

Length: 6 hours. Available every day, on request only.

4. Farm To Table Cooking Experience: Do you want to know where your food comes from and who’s behind it? We’ll take you to visit 2 sustainable projects of organic agriculture where you’ll meet with local farmers and learn about local and seasonal foods. You’ll be able to pick your own veggies and fruits before cooking them in our cooking class, hosted at a 400-year-old farmhouse.

Length: 9 hours. Available every day, morning and evening, on request only.

Wonderful evening cooking!
We loved our cooking class with Nuria! We were two couples with virtually no cooking skills, but Nuria gave us all easy tasks to prepare a healthy dinner. We sat at her dining room table and enjoyed our dinner together discussing life in Barcelona. We really enjoyed that the class was in her home as opposed to a restaurant or more commercial location. Later, her husband and daughter joined us. Her husband is from New York originally and it was so interesting to hear his perspective on life in Barcelona. Nuria is an excellent chef, but the evening was so much more than just learning to cook.

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. I would recommend the cooking class for adults and for families with teens. It was also interesting to see a “typical” Barcelona apartment. 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!

Fantastic experience with Nuria!
The experience was very authentic and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Nuria is an excellent teacher and clearly very experienced in the kitchen. Her home is beautiful and provides a fantastic setting to take part in the cooking experience. We learnt new skills and new recipes that we will definitely be trying again at home. The food was delicious and we enjoyed learning about Catalan life and culture from Nuria. We even had a good political discussion over our lunch!
Thank you for a fantastic 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.
