Great fun! The central location was easy to find and a short walk to the Boqueria (in spite of the rain). Our chef spoke English flawlessly and was delightful. She changed the menu to reflect the cooler day and explained techniques well. It was fun participating with all, including a 3 year old who had fun stirring the ricotta. Missed out on the jamon tasting, and most techniques were very basic but was still a GREAT day. Well worth the $ and time. Already recommended to several friends.

The little tips that the chef gave were very useful - a lovely extra to the cookery class! The visit to the Boqueria was fun and instructive, and the fact that we were such a small number made it more personal. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Our teacher was wonderful and entertaining and very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about Barcelona and the market and Catalan culture and had fun too. Highly recommend this.
