About the location

Located right on Barcelona’s famous Las Ramblas, this Spanish cookery school provides guests with the perfect day trip experience right in the heart of this famous Catalan city opposite the famous Boqueria food market where you can whet your appetite with a market tour prior to your cooking class.

The contemporary, spacious kitchen is set on the second floor of a building right on Las Ramblas and, so in between cooking up a storm you’ll be able to admire the stunning views of the bustling street below and the rest of the city whilst sipping excellent wines from the cookery school’s private label reserves and feasting on the delicious authentic Spanish dishes that you’ve learnt to cook. You’ll cover classics like paella, tapas and creme catalan making an appetiser, main and dessert.

This conscientious cookery school likes to employ a 0km policy for their food sourcing and where possible all vegetables are locally grown and organic and the meat is locally farmed.

Classes are informal and fun and taught by professional chefs with many years’ experience. Executive head chef and co-founder Candido has joined the team after many years experiencing teaching cookery classes in the city and deciding he was ready for a new challenge.

Fellow founders Tony and Emma are also on hand, as friendly, knowledgeable hosts to provide everything you need during your day with them. The school has been founded on certain principles that are the team felt were important; the use of quality ingredients is of utmost importance and locally sourced organic produce is used in all dishes to highlight the intense flavours that Spanish cuisine can offer.

This ethos also applies to the wine served throughout the classes, and rather than use a cheaper product, the team have developed a private label reserve so that guests can enjoy a choice of two magnificent wines throughout their time at the school. These artisan wines have been especially developed by Carlos and Emi, two talented winemakers based in the famous wine region on La Rioja. Carlos is an award winning wine producer, having won the 'Best Winemaker of The Year Award 2012' by Naked Wines, an online wine retailer from the UK.

The state of the art kitchen is equipped with energy efficient appliances and is large enough to accommodate up to 12 students with hands on cooking facilities available to all. The central location, right opposite the famous Boqueria food market makes this an ideal location for city visitors and tours of the food market can also be taken prior to your cookery class.

Enjoy a fun sociable day filled with delicious food, magnificent wines in a great sociable atmosphere in the heart of this famous city and make your trip truly special with an authentic Spanish cooking class in Barcelona.
