“What a Paella”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

My wife and I joined another 11 people from around the world last night for a Paella cooking class.

We booked online sometime ago and that all went very smoothly.
Directions to Marta's property were a little hazy once we got off the metro but we managed to arrive on time.
In Marta's apartment, she explained the ingredients, let us help her prepare them and then we watched as she put the Paella together and cooked it.

We all sat down together on the deck of Marta's apartment and enjoyed the dish over a glass of wine( need to bring your own if you wish to have a wine with dinner ). It was great to have an opportunity to chat with fellow travellers.
The food was beautiful and we are to be provided online with the receipe which will be fun to try back home.
All we need now is a Paella dish
Thank you Marta for sharing your expertise in such an informative and entertaining manner.

“An unforgettable experience for all your five senses...!!!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to BCN. It was a joy to have Marta as a teacher. It was worthy every minute of the 3 hours. Looking forward to making one at home.

“Wonderful Afternoon with Marta”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Our two families with twenty-something children had a delightful and delicious afternoon with Marta. The lesson was great, the food was excellent, and learning about Barcelona from a native was fantastic. The class was well organized and Marta was a great instructor. We left with her wonderful recipe. We cooked in her apartment and then ate on the terrace overlooking the beautiful city of Barcelona. A mucho bueno experience!

“Highlight of Our Trip”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Our family loved Marta's class. What a great way to get to know a city. Getting to meet such a lovely local person, in her home, learn about the food and a little about the culture in the process. Marta is so gracious and has a wonderful sense of humor. This was about so much more than paella for us. Our fellow travelers in the class were from all over and made it all the more interesting. Sign up! You will be glad you did. Oh, and bring an appetite!

“One of the best paella in Barcelona”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

It was my first cooking class but I hope that it won't be the last, thanks to Marta. I spend a great time in Marta's house cooking and talking, the class was very interesting and memorable.
The thing that I liked the most about it is the very friendly atmosphere and true Barcelona's spirit.

If you want to know Barcelona better even if you were there few times I recomend you to visit cooking classes of these wonderful woman.
