“Unforgettable Experience..Awesome day!!”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

My friend Kate & I will talk about this experience for years to come and will also put to very good use, all that we learnt that day. Juame was very welcoming after picking us up from our motel & then taking us on a tour of La Boqueria Market and surrounds, it was very interesting and so much fun. We felt very comfortable in the top floor apartment and after a glass of wine, we rolled up our sleeves and got right amongst all the food that we had just purchased at the market. Amazing seafood and it was the first time I really enjoyed marinated anchovies...yummy.. and the seafood paella was the cherry on top!
Very enjoyable day and would highly reccomend anyone to book as we would definitely do it again. Thankyou very much Juame for such a "intense" experience and hope to cross paths again one day. Cheers to anyone that participates!

“taste of spain exceeded all my expectations.”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

As a professional chef and restaurant company owner, I was impressed with the agenda and recommendations that Miguel Ullibarri had arranged for our group. My only hesitation with" Taste of Spain" is the non acceptance of the American Express card.

“Best culinary experience ever!”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

Johma, our host and chef, was awesome! He took us on a tour and shopping through the Boqueria Market for the lunch we would prepare later that day. The selections of produce, hams & seafood was amazing. A short taxi ride to the incredible apartment where we all joined in the cooking and feasting on the foods we had purchased took most of the day. No one was disappointed. It was fantastic! Thanks Miguel and everyone at Taste of Spain for an experience we will never forget.

“Awesome and so enlightening!”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

I was bought this experience as a gift on my travels, and it was fabulous. Juame was so welcoming and down to earth. The tour through the famous La Boqueria market was so interesting, and very informative - I learnt a lot!! Especially "all is not what it appears in the market". Great to share the experience with someone knowledgable. The cooking session was fantastic!! Non stop tasting and wonderful insights.... The house and the kitchen were very warm and relaxing. Lots of fun. I highly recommend it and would most definitely do it again.

“A must stop when in Barcelona”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

We are a group member of a Chef Association and we were eager to learn about Spanish cuisine. We were very satisfied as our teacher Ignacio was more than just a chef but also a tour guide as he accompanied our group to the market. The cooking lesson was convivial and we all participated in preparing a typical Spanish meal. The location of the school is amazing and the installations were great, but best of all the recipes more than met our expectations.
