Team building: Cooking Classes in Barcelona

A cooking class is a great team building activity as it brings people together through a shared love of food. Whether you’re an experienced cook or a complete novice in the kitchen, a cooking class is a dynamic and lively activity which will keep even the most culinary-phobic person entertained. You can participate as much or as little as you like, but we’re sure that the colours and smells will make you want to join in and help create a feast.
A cooking class also makes an amazing team building activity in Barcelona as it’s a group project and the outcome effects everybody in the team. If you want to eat something delicious at the end of your hard work, everyone will need to put their best food forward – or best fork forward, as the case may be!

The chef and the kitchen

Our professional chef will be waiting for you in our centrally located kitchen, with all the fresh produce that you will need to create several delicious tapas dishes. Make sure you ask plenty of questions along the way to make the most of cooking alongside a chef with a wealth of culinary knowledge! You’ll find it easier to recreate the dishes when you get home and share them with friends and family.

General Information: What are tapas?

Before booking your cooking class in Barcelona, you’ll want to know a little bit about tapas and the tapas culture.
There’s so many myths relating to how tapas came to be, many of them involving kings. In reality, it seems that tapas were “invented” to keep people in bars and drinks flowing. If you give someone a salty snack, such as chips, olives or bread and oil, with their drink, it’s likely to make them thirstier and they will order another beer!
Tapas are a great way to enjoy lots of different dishes. There’s no need to only choose one plate, everyone at the table can choose different things and then share amongst the group. Whether you love meat, fish, vegetables or carbs, there is a tapas dish with your name on it.

Tapas in Barcelona

The way tapas are eaten and experienced is completely different in all different areas of Spain. In Barcelona, tapas dining was not a hugely popular way to eat until relatively recently, with tapas bars springing up all over the city.
While there are some tapas bites that are popular all over Spain, Catalonia also has its own unique tapas dishes. In this Tapas Cooking Class, you will create both local and national plates, giving you a great cross-section of tapas in Spain.
