Our Accessible Hands-on Paella Cooking Class & Food Market Tour starts at the Santa Caterina food market. It is probably the most local and authentic food market in Barcelona, where our chefs will give you plenty of tips on how to select the best seasonal local products. Returning to the school, you’ll start preparing and cooking your dishes in a friendly and informal group setting. Among flavors, scents, and a glass of good wine, we will unveil the secrets of the real Paella, as you enjoy the dish that you have been preparing. Back home, you will be able to impress your guests with your new skills!

The space where the workshop takes place offers step-free access and an adapted toilet. Please note the table where you cook is 85 cm tall (33 inches).
