What to Expect
Your culinary adventure begins at a central meeting point in Barcelona. Here, you’ll greet your guide and set off toward La Boqueria Market, a commercial hub selling fresh Spanish produce. Learn about the history and social significance of Catalan food from your guide before heading to a local kitchen for a cooking class.
Under the guidance of a professional chef, you’ll master the art of Spanish dishes such as Spanish omelets, seafood paella, and mussels. Then, sit down to feast on a 12-course tapas menu accompanied by unlimited wine and beer. Dine on dishes such as croquettes, manchego cheese, Iberian cold cuts, patatas bravas (potatoes with a spicy tomato sauce), and other Catalan staples.

We made 3 dishes but we learned how to make a bunch of tapas before. They sent the recipes later. We did the class with 6 people.
