Paella cooking classes in Barcelona 

What our guests say

Ashley Dames

Palm Bay, FL



"This experience was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona!
Helina is so nice and fun to be around while also teaching a ton of interesting and useful skills.
I learned a lot about cooking and Helina showed us the most amazing ingredients not just for the paella that we were cooking but also for other dishes at home.
This is an experience that you don’t want to miss!”

Peggy Salinas

Brownsville, TX



“What a fun experience with Helina and the fun guests!! Meeting at the market was exciting and educational. Helena’s studio is beautiful and so perfect for an enjoyable learning experience.
We had so much good food, cava, and freshly made sangria that we had to waddle home!!
I would highly recommend this rather than a restaurant paella dinner!! Better value and certainly more fun!!!”

Lee Ann Wong

Manhattan Beach, CA
 

“Helina and her daughter were the perfect hostesses. They were excellent at communicating, and extremely gracious and flexible when we had a last minute scheduling problem. The evening itself was lively and fun, and despite our group's size, they were able to get everyone involved and cooking, even the 16 year boys that were with us. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to have a magical, convivial experience in Barcelona.”

What we will do 

boqueria market paella cooking class barcelona

We will meet in BOQUERIA, the oldest and most known Barcelona market and one of the most important markets in Europe, where the freshest and best quality products are found!

We will go directly to the most authentic and beautiful WINE SELLAR where we greet ourselves with a glass of Cava, and talk about the market history, Paella cooking, Spanish delicious food, etc.  

After greeting drink we will visit the most INTERESTING Boqueria SHOPS and TASTE different delicious things they sell:

♥ premium quality Iberian Jamón and Chorizo

♥ famous Spanish Olives, Olive Oil, and Truffle Oil

♥ the best quality Saffron, Spanish Paprika, and Truffle salt

♥ famous Catalan sweet Turrón

Then, we will pick up ♥ the freshest seafood for our paella in my favorite and best seafood shop.

Here I will show many interesting sea creatures (all alive) that you might have never seen before!​

You will feel here like a Spanish: tasting local products and chatting with my friends-sellers!

Next, we will pass through the MEDIEVAL HOSPITAL DE LA SANTA CREU, which is just a few steps from Boqueria.

The architectural complex of the Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu dates back to the 15th century and is undoubtedly one of Barcelona’s most emblematic Gothic and Baroque examples. 

Ancient HOSPITAL DE LA SANTA CREU is also famous as the place of death of ANTONIO GAUDÍ the famous architect and author of Sagrada Familia, who tragically died after a tram accident.

Then, OUR COOKING SESSION  in a beautiful and antique, Gothic style Cooking Studio

will begin!

First, you will be greeted with a “bottomless” glass of Cava (famous Spanish sparkling wine). 

We will create together:

♥ SEAFOOD PAELLA: Huge, super slim, and SOOO Delicious! (80cm /30inches wide!) The thinner the paella the better!

♥ Fresh MUSSELS: steamed with white WINE. Those mussels that we just bought alive from the Boqueria market!

♥ Norway lobsters, cuttlefish, squids, monkfish, mussels, prawns! These are the essential ingredients for our paella!

♥ PAN con TOMATE: famous Catalan tomato bread: with famous Spanish Jamón and Chorizo!

♥ SANGRIA RED & SANGRIA WHITE: the BEST homemade one: fresh juice & fruits & good wine & liqueur. 

We will start with Pa amb tomaquet or Pan con tomate (famous Spanish bread with tomato). It is considered one of the typical examples that define the Mediterranean diet, extended like a traditional recipe throughout Spain. 

We will top our bread with Spanish Jamon and Chorizo to enhance the flavor.

At the same time, we will prepare an authentic SANGRIA, 

the BEST homemade one, from fresh juice & fruits!

 

We will use ONLY fresh fruits & fresh juice & good wine & liqueur. NO sodas, Fantas and etc like in the majority of touristic places!  

We will cook together our SEAFOOD PAELLA with high-quality products only following step by step my family recipe. There are many ways to cook paella, but this one is especially delicious.

I will explain all secrets and you will easily cook your own paella at home for your family and friends !

cheers barcelona paella class
