Danny was so enthusiastic about Spanish food and included everyone in the process with his humor, knowledge and obvious enjoyment of people. It was our first cooking class and our granddaughter, who wants to be a chef, was really mesmorized by the experience. She is now at home, working on croquettes and paella--in the new pan that we sent her and the safron and smoking (only) hot paprika, we took home. It was a great experience all around. Thank you Danny!!

Our cooking class in Madrid with Andrea was great fun! We met other travelers from around the world, learned how to make classic Spanish dishes and their history, and ate the delicious results! We enjoyed the trip to the market and the beautiful space where we all participated in making our lunch. Highly recommend this as a great way to go deeper in your experience of this magical city!

Our tour leader and chef was Andrea C., she did an outstanding job both on the food market visit and during the cooking class. She spoke clearly and loudly enough that we easily understood her. During the cooking class all participants were given the opportunity to actually cook. We will look for Devour cooking classes on future travels.
