What you'll do

This 4-course workshop lasts approximately 2.5 hours and is a great introduction to the world of paella and Spanish cuisine. 

You will be greeted by one of our hosts with a glass of cava and then walked through the concept behind The Paella Club and the ingredients we work with.

Afterwards, guests will organise themselves in groups of one-two per cooking station, where they will find every utensil and ingredient needed to cook each paella under the promise of a fully immersive and dynamic experience. Depending on the size of the class, several varieties of paella will be made at each class so that all of the guests are able to learn how to create and taste more than one type of paella. 

You will feel at home while our staff guides you through our "10 secret paella steps." As a preview, we'll give away one of the 10 secret steps: Step 1—take a sip of our premium wine.

The paella workshop itself has a duration of 45 minutes to an hour. After the workshop is over, while the paellas are finishing cooking, you will sit and enjoy other courses made by our chef as well as your paella creations with Catalan wine pairing.
Other things to note
The venue offers free fully functioning Wi-Fi. Please note that craft beer and upgraded wines will also be available.

Originally from Canada and born to Spanish parents, I moved to San Sebastian to carry out my culinary degree at the Basque Culinary Center. After graduating, I was offered a job at the restaurant Noma in Copenhagen. After a couple of seasons in Denmark, I decided to move back to sunny Spain and share the knowledge I've gained throughout my culinary career with other like-minded people who love to eat and cook.

This was a fantastic experience! Alex and the team made sure everyone felt welcome and that glasses were never empty. We came away having learned how to make delicious paella and made a few new friends too!

We did some cooking experiences in other countries, but this was definitely one of the best. Alex is an amazing host, teaching us how to make paella but without losing the fun of it. We drank some wine during the experience which make it even more fun. If you would like to know how to cook a paella, I recommend you to do this experience.
