I’m a chef & founder of www.PaellaBarcelona.com cooking school and a real foodie.

Having been a Paella chef in our family restaurant for a decade, then running my Paella Experience https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/378164 for several years; today I can firmly claim: I’ve been cooking paella for almost half of my life!

My daughter Mary, who is a chef & passionate food lover, is my primary support in our @paella.BCN cooking experience! We both are in love with food and have our cooking YouTube show.

A lot of fun but please do realize that as a practical matter you will need to purchase a ticket for everyone in the room even if they are not cooking.

This was really fun and with Helina’s help, easy! She guided us through each step, checked our cooking as we went through the class and everything tasted delicious. Would make this recipe again in a second.

Thank you so much Helena for this amazing experience! It was just the perfect Father’s Day present, we had a lot of fun, and it was great meeting everyone as well. The paella was fabulously delicious. It really makes us want to go back to Barcelona once again when we can. 11/10 🤩

Helina was awesome, friendly, experienced, and our paellas turned out fantastic! Her communication was great, and while planning the event she always responded to my questions quickly. This was a work team bonding event, and everyone had a great time. The background information about paella, Helina's experience, and her Barcelona stories food stories are great. It's fast paced cooking, so I recommend for everyone to follow her instructions in prepping the ingredients beforehand. I highly recommend Helina's Paella class to everyone. You won't be disappointed and will end up with a delicious meal. Thank you, Helina!

Helina really loves what she does and it shows in her prep and culinary skills. Very nuanced and detailed to get the right flavors and taste. She stayed up till 3am so that she could accommodate people on different continents. I highly recommend her.

Helina was a gracious host! From the initial booking of the class to the execution, the experience was seamless and interactive. Helina was very responsive to any questions I had for the private event and she made sure to appeal to everyones preferences in paella (since some folks were missing ingredients!). This is a great activity to do with your family, friends or even colleagues. Helina incorporates cooking directions with fun discussions and eating/drinking breaks, so the class had a great flow. I would highly recommend this class!
