We booked our experience through a tourism company but recommend reaching out directly through their website.

The experience starts with a quick introduction and a list of ingredients as well as a check of specific food likes or dislikes and allergies, which was great because my wife doesn't do any type of fish or seafood. Cándido, our chef instructor, was super flexible and accommodating.

We quickly head down the Rambla to the Boqueria market. We had visited the market before and enjoyed some of the food there before, but the experience took on a whole other dime sion ha ing Cándido explain the origins of the different types of foods as well as giving us tips and tricks for how to get the freshest fish, seafood and vegetables. I learned quite a bit and it was really cool seeing how a known chef in the city interacts with the different vendors. Once we had our ingredients, it was time to cook.

A five minute walk and we were washing vegetables, learning how to clean the seafood, and doing all the prep. Cándido did a great job of pairing couples with different tasks while providing instructions.

Our dishes were a delicious red gazpacho (strawberry and tomatoes), traditional potato omelet, chicken and seafood paellas, traditional tomato bread, and Cataluyan cream for dessert. The dishes were incredibly delicious and well worth the effort.

Cándido speaks really good English and has worked as a chef in New Jersey. He is very generous with his tine and knowledge and highly recommend the experience. Thank you Cándido and Ema for teaching us how to make these great traditional dishes.

Wow what an evening. We started with a walk round the market where our knowledgable guide Candidos, showed us lots of the local produce with background history. After buying our ingredients we headed back to the kitchen just across the road. Then the lessons began. Fun and entertaining. We not only made two types of paella (seafood and chicken). But also crema de calabaza (a butternut squash and pear soup delicious). And Spanish omelette and a kind of creme brûlée infused with lemon and cinnamon. After the prep came the cooking - very hands on. We then ate our concoctions with some Spanish wine. What a wonderful way to spend an evening - and no washing up. Excellent value for money, we even came away with meal and Tapas recommendations and the recipes arrived via email. Can’t recommend highly enough. The kitchens were also spotless and COVID rules followed.

Such a fun class! Candido makes shopping the market a cultural learning experience, sprinkling in history as you pick up ingredients for the class. The cooking portion is completely hands on, and you are sure to learn some tips from Candido — in a friendly, never condescending manner — no matter how experienced you are in the kitchen. Amazing how many recipes you’ll make and then enjoy at the end.
This was my second class with Barcelona Cooking. Had so much fun years ago with a tapas class that I had to return to try the paella class. Highly recommend both!

Candidos was an amazing and knowledgeable sous chef and guide. He made the market come to life with the history of the vendors and the food available for purchase. The kitchen was an excellent space to share with the other guests. We all felt like we had a job and contributed to the DELICIOUS paella and tapas prepared; no one felt left out. It is an excellent experience if you want to immerse yourself in true Barcelona cooking!

Our family of three had a great time in this cooking class. Chef Juan is a wonderful instructor and warm host, and we learned so much from him. Our classmates were also fun and welcoming. The food was wonderful and so was the wine, and participants receive copies of the recipes. Even if you’ve toured La Bouqeria on your own, I would still recommend taking the tour as part of the class, as Chef Juan is an excellent guide to this fascinating market. While we do a lot of cooking in our home, the course is simple enough for beginners.

The boqueria was so interesting, I wish we had a market like that where we live. The chef did an amazing job teaching us & the resulting meal was delicious. The most fun activity we’ve had on our trip thus far. Highly recommend.

The school is conveniently located on the Rambla and a great way to spend a morning. The trip to the market with a local who is passionate about local food gives you a great feel for the city. The class itself is relaxed yet informative giving many tips and insights. A great Thing to do with a teenager and ending with a great meal and good wine.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona. We started with an amazing tour of the Boqueria Market - seeing unique vendors and food that you miss touring it on your own. We sampled some of the fresh ingredients and learned about some of the signature foods of the area. The interactive cooking and prep was relaxed, informative and enjoyable - Chef answered questions, took extra time to explain local ingredients and pairings. They were great with dietary restrictions and did not have a problem adjusting to our needs. We had a group of 4 and the Chef made sure everyone was involved and participated. The food was simple, yet extremely delicious. The kitchen overlooks the Las Ramblas - with the windows open and the sounds below, it made for the perfect backdrop to cooking in Barcelona.

Candido the chef was excellent. He started by explaining our time together. He then walked us to the market explaining fun facts about his city. He took us to the market and walked us around explaining the different foods and vegetables. We bought what we needed to cook and walked back. We spent the rest of the time preparing several dishes as he carefully watched us prepare the meals. He is very informative and extremely nice. When we finished we sat down and ate all the wonderful dishes. I would highly recommend this experience to all the come to Barcelona.

This class may be a little more expensive than others, but it’s worth it. The market visit was exciting and informative and perfectly planned. The Paiea class included squash soup, Spanish omelette, Tomato toast and Spanish crème brûlée. The instructor and owner was funny, organized entertaining and we all had a marvelous time. We also were served some great wine instead of the run-of-the-mill sangria.
