Since its opening last year, Barcelona Cooking has been a featured destination for tourists interested in learning how to prepare popular Spanish dishes in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Barcelona Cooking has hosted hundreds of recreational cooking classes and a wide variety of special events for visitors from the United States, Canada, and many other countries. Corporate team building, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and family reunions – every event provides a unique and memorable experience. TripAdvisor reviews speak volumes:

"Bright and inviting kitchen" – Cincinnati, Ohio

"The kitchen itself is beautiful, overlooking La Rambla" – San Francisco, CA

"The combination of meeting travelers from other places, fresh, local ingredients and just enough direction to ensure we did everything right, made for a very special evening. We would strongly recommend this for people looking for a unique experience, great wine and wonderful food" – Richmond Hill, Canada

Typical morning class includes a tour of the world-famous Boqueria Market, where a professionally trained Chef talks about the history of the market, tells the story behind multiple-generation vendors, and other interesting but not well-known facts. During the tour, participants also select ingredients that are used later in the cooking class. What more fun way to start the day in beautiful Barcelona?

Now with the opening of the second kitchen on the floor above, Barcelona Cooking is ready for the ever-growing demand for recreational cooking classes and special events. Each event is hosted by a professionally trained Chef/Instructor, in a private kitchen with amazing views of Las Ramblas, accommodating parties for up to 30 people. The typical menu includes the most popular Spanish dishes such as paella, or it can be customized to the customer's preference or specific needs. Expanding into the second kitchen offers the Chefs additional flexibility.

Barcelona Cooking has been mentioned in Los Angeles Times and in Norwegian Afterposten as one of highly recommended activities to do in Barcelona.
