Reviews for Spanish Cooking Class & La Boqueria

Steve D.

This was a fun and informative cooking class on preparing and shopping for the freshest ingredients from la Boqueria market. Markat la Boqueria has the greatest selection of meats, fishes and vegetables as well as all the bits and fresh spices that make a delicious meal come together. Our teacher, chef Rosa was smart, a great teacher and fun. Our class prepared, cooked and then we ate our super tasty paella, with regional wine. If your in Barcelona this is a great experience. Yes Chef!

A highly enjoyable and informative few hours. Our guide, Loca, not only had excellent English, but was also an extremely knowledgeable, local chef. The tour around La Boqueira was insightful; we now feel we can truly make the most of local markets and experience Spanish culture. The food we made was all delicious and as two avid chefs, we are delighted to have learnt many new techniques. The cooking class was given to me as a gift for my 21st birthday; this is up there with one of the best presents I've ever had! A thoroughly enjoyable experience that we would highly recommend to all.


Candido is a true professional! The whole market and cooking experience was one of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona. The knowledge he has for local produce and cuisine was outstanding. The cooking experience was thoroughly enjoyable and of course eating at the end was the best! Amazing, fresh, tasty food! Take this experience, you will love it!

This is so much fun! I'm so fortunate to have found this class. Candido was fun friendly proficient and knowledgeable. I feel like I learned so much in such a short time. The ability to go to the market added greatly to the experience. I was also really impressed by how well thought out and organized the class was. It was certainly the best meal that I had in Barcelona and hands-down the highlight of my trip to Spain. I can't recommend this class highly enough. So worth it! Thank you.

Our master chef and market guide, Kindra, was very pleasant and enthusiastic. She clearly had a great knowledge of cooking in general and of La Boqueria market specifically. The class was fun and we had a great group of other "chefs-in-training." This was probably the highlight of our time in Barcelona and we definitely recommend it! The food we prepared also ended up tasting great due to Kindra's guidance.


I took the tour and class with my 12 years old daughter. We enjoyed every minute. Chef xavier was funny, Friendly patient and professional. We learned tips for Cooking in general and catalan cuisine in particular. It was one of our great experiences. Highly recommended!!!!!! Ayelet
