In most Barcelona cooking classes, you watch a chef prepare a dish. Not this one. Sharing a burner with one other person, you'll learn how to make paella in the most hands-on way; following the actions of your chef as you turn fresh, local ingredients into a quintessential Spanish delicacy.

Your chef is fully bilingual (no interpreters, like other paella-making classes) and has worked in kitchens both in Barcelona and around Europe, including the multi Michelin-starred Noma in Denmark. He won't only show you how an authentic Paella is made, he'll teach you the skills and secrets necessary to recreate the dish at home.

When you have finished cooking, you’ll sit down with your fellow cooks to feast on your creations with a choice of local wine (red or white), beer, or soft drinks. Eat as the Spanish do and linger over your meal, then finish up with something sweet. If you want to continue the party, your hosts will be happy to recommend other nightlife spots in Barcelona.

Alex & Alex were fantastic! The venue is really cool. We were met with cava wine when we entered, and there was hardly a moment that our glasses were empty throughout the night. We learned about wines, paella, and other things. Cooking the paella was really easy with their guidance. Alex had prepared other entrees and desserts for us as well (gazpacho, salted chocolate mousse were some favorites!). There was plenty of food to go around. They even gave us the recipes for everything we had, along with some extra recipes I am excited to try! I would absolutely go back. Highly recommend!!


FAQ

Why are there two different time slots to choose from when I book?
The 8:00pm Paella class is slightly longer (30-minutes) and includes two deserts, meaning you will spend longer hanging out after your meal enjoying the company. The 5:00pm option is thirty minutes shorter and only includes one desert. Otherwise, the classes are identical.
I have dietary restrictions/food allergies. Can I still take the cooking class?
Yes! If you suffer from any food allergies or dietary restrictions please make sure to alert us prior to booking.
Are kids welcome in the cooking class?
Absolutely, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
I have mobility issues, can I still take the cooking class?
Yes! Classes are held on the ground floor & are accessible to all. Guests must be able to stand or sit on a high stool during the cooking lesson.
