Book a Spanish Cooking Class in Barcelona!

A Spanish Cooking Class is a great way to connect with Spanish culture through food and drink. Food plays an important role in the everyday lives of people in Spain, with big family meals being a regular occurrence. One of the most famous sharing dishes in Spain is paella.

For larger groups, we have two great team-building activities in Barcelona – the Paella Cooking Competition and the new Tapas Cooking Competition.

Spanish Cooking Class in Barcelona: How to cook Paella

This dish, cooked in a large pan, is originally from Valencia, the rice-growing region in Spain. Which makes sense as rice is the main ingredient fo this famous Spanish dish.  There are dozens of incarnations of this tasty dish, with seafood being one of the more popular options. In Barcelona, they like to make it with “sepia”, or cuttlefish, and mussels, but you will find vegetarian, meat and fish options all over the city. Once you’ve sampled it in a restaurant, learning to make it yourself is the next step, and we have expert chefs and assistants ready and waiting to help you.

Market Tour

The key to success for any dish is not only the talent of the chef but also the quality of the ingredients. The Boqueria market, located on the famous Las Ramblas of Barcelona, is a chef’s treasure chest of fresh local ingredients.  Your activity will begin with a tour of this market and learning how to select the right ingredients for this meal.

Cook, Eat, Drink

In our centrally located kitchen, you will assist in the preparation of the ingredients and cooking of this famous dish. The chef will explain all the ingredients, why they are important and what they bring to the dish. Meanwhile, you will slice, dice and chop your way through the individual components required to bring together this classic and delicious meal.


Once everything is ready, you will all sit down together to eat and drink. To enhance the dining experience you will enjoy local wine pairings that compliment the food.  After all your hard work, this is the moment to enjoy the social part of the activity.  Dietary requirements can be accommodated, please specify at the time of booking, for example, vegetarians are easy to cater for with a delicious veggie paella.

Of course, no feast would be complete without a dessert to finish off the evening. One example is Crema Catalana, a great local dessert that will be prepared in advance by the chef and then you will help add the finishing touches before sitting down to eat it.
