Paella Maestro

What you'll do

  • Duration: 3 hours
  • Group size: up to 15 people
  • Hosted in: English

Learn step-by-step how to cook your first Paella following my family’s recipe in a charming cooking space located in one the most unique and multicultural neighborhoods of Barcelona, the bohemian district of Gracia. During this cooking workshop, we will also make Sangría, an iconic and traditional refreshment in Spain and while in the region of Catalunya you will be learning to make the most traditional dessert ‘Catalan Cream’, a flavorful, aromatic and creamy dessert.

We will cook all the recipes together and share the tasks just like a traditional Spanish family. Together around one big table with all the necessary fresh ingredients. Some of you will be cutting fruits to prepare the Sangría, while others will be preparing the Catalan Cream or the vegetables for the Paella. Depending on the size of the class, we will all take turns making sure that each one of us have a chance to participate.

At the end of the course we will eat together our communal Paella with a glass of Sangría and completed with the dessert of Catalan Cream.
