About this tour

The first activity is a visit to the famed La Boqueria market for ingredients guided by a professional chef. Then a walk through Barcelona’s old town. You are welcomed to the kitchen with appetizers including traditional Spanish and Catalan hot and cold tapas.

The chef demonstrates how to make seafood paella and Basque pintxos, or montaditos(tapas with toothpicks). The illustration includes the history of the dishes, the ingredients used, and the steps in the preparation.

You are given insights into making sangría and you prepare one of your own. Finally, the entire class sits for a meal together and enjoys their cooking with a glass of own-made sangría. Original recipes are emailed to you after the workshop.

I had a great time in this class learning how to make authentic Paella. Gerard was a great teacher. I really enjoyed the market tour. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who wants to learn how to make paella.
