Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet the chef at a central Barcelona location, then start with the fresh basics of Spanish cuisine, collecting fresh seafood from the local vendors and producers at La Boqueria, one of Barcelona’s most famous markets.

From the market, continue to a cooking school in El Born district, where you find an open kitchen, bar, and restaurant-style seating. Pour your first glass of sangria for the evening, then start preparing a range of tapas, or pintxos, classic Spanish small plates that are perfectly paired with wine.

With a chef cooking alongside you, start preparing the traditional paella, then as the rice dish simmers on a low flame, you can learn to mix your own sangria at a short drinks-making workshop. When the paella is done, sit down to the meal you’ve prepared, savoring the rich flavor of the rice and seafood (a non-seafood meal option is served by the chef for those who don’t eat seafood).

And if you’re not ready to finish the night, you're invited to a nearby bar, where you’ll be treated to a free "chupito," or shot, and enjoy drink specials throughout the evening.

Our host was exceptional a great chief and teacher! It was great to start the experience with a visits to the local market to pick up the fresh produce. He thought use many tips and tricks in the kitchen while teaching us to make paella and sangria. I had an issue with trying to get hold of the supplier on the day of the experience- no answer by phone or contact through my Viator account

Gabriel was an amazing host, it was a fun experience. If you like to learn about culture and cooking then i would highly recommend this experience. Just keep in mind that if you can dont book for a monday as the fish market closes early snd you wouldnt be able to enjoy the market experience. Over all a 5 star experience.
Great interactive class...

Our cooking experience was amazing! A must do while in Barcelona. Your chef will guide you through their masterful experience to create a traditional Spanish dish. We could not have been happier!
Must do!!!!

My friends and I did this class on our weekend trip from our study abroad. It was perfect!!! You begin with learning how to make sangria with a very energetic and welcoming guide. Following that, you head to the kitchen, enjoy some sangria, and prepare the meal. The chef was also very nice and made sure we were having a good time. Also, the paella was fantastic!! HIGHLY recommend!! Our trip wouldn't have been the same without this excursion.
You can cook paella at home

Paella and the cooking process were great! But the place is dark, nothing was served/prepared in advance and we saw a rat there. The host wasn't very talkative. I'm very disappointed with the experience. Don't recommend it!

Perfect Paella
, Sep 2020
Fantastic experience from start to finish. Very easy to book online with a quick confirmation. Meeting place (The Travellers Nest) very easy to find, very friendly staff and a very cool bar. Fernando (our chef and tutor) speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable and a really fun guy. The trip around the market to buy lovely fresh ingredients was made even better by having a Spanish speaker with us. The teaching kitchen/restaurant was tucked away through all the interesting little back streets and was equipped with everything we needed. Fernando was so hospitable and made our mixed European group really welcome. The food and sangria we all made together was delicious, recipe sheets were given out and then the evening was extended with drinks back at The Travellers Nest. I would thoroughly recommend this cooking experience - great value for money and the paella recipe will be used time and again now I’m an expert!!!
