What You'll Do

Discover one of Spain's most celebrated gastronomic traditions in the beautiful city of Barcelona; this tapas and wine tasting class will teach you how to make 5 tapas dishes and pair them with delicious Catalan wines after a guided visit of the famous La Boqueria market.

Get more from your city break in the fascinating city of Barcelona and discover the secrets of one of Spain’s most famous culinary traditions – tapas.

This cooking class will make sure you make the most of your time in Barcelona – no matter how long or short your stay is. Start the class with a tour of La Boqueria market on La Rambla where you meet the many traders and learn about their locally sourced products.

Head back to the kitchen with your chef and learn about the very best of Spain’s tapas cuisine from the traditional, to the avant-garde to the Catalan favourites; you’ll learn the secrets behind creating authentic, mouth watering tapas to impress friends back home.

Once your food from the hands-on cooking class is ready, you will sit down to eat the delicious food you have made and learn to pair the dishes with local wines from the Catalonia region.

Set right on the ramblas, this cookery school boasts professional chefs, hands on tuition and even their own private label reserve so the wine is as good as the locally sourced, and often organic ingredients that go into creating the dishes.

You’ll learn to prepare 5 tapas dishes; which ones depends on the season as ingredients are chosen according to what’s in season. After the class, sit down with a glass of excellent wine and enjoy the fruits of your labour, overlooking Catalan’s most famous and fascinating city.
