What you'll do

Welcome to Valencia, the birthplace of paella!

We are Eduardo and Lara, proud Valencians and passionate about food and wine. In this experience, Eduardo will teach you how to make an authentic Valencian paella based on the family recipe of his abuela!

More than just a live cooking class, we will be teaching you, step-by-step, how to prepare and execute the perfect paella. While cooking, we will also be sharing stories about Valencian culture, our traditions, wine pairings, and our favourite local culinary traditions!

We will be preparing traditional paella Valenciana. The ingredients we share with you are available in all international supermarkets so you can create a tasty authentic paella from the comfort of your home. The traditional paella is with chicken but we can accommodate any dietary restrictions - just drop us a message before the experience!

Join us for a super-fun and tasty workshop, interact with people from all over the world, relax with a glass of wine, and get a taste of Valencia from the comfort of your own home! We can’t wait to meet you! Let the paella party begin!

Note: This is a small-group experience so price is per person, not per screen to manage the number of people in the experience

I am born and raised in Valencia and passionate about my city's culture, gastronomy and wines!

4 years ago I launched my own company, Sea Saffron, which focuses on hosting international guests from all over the world and showcasing the best of the Valencian region through gastronomy and wines in our unique venues:

For many years, I have been cooking paellas for family and friends, learning the recipe of my abuela. I love having the opportunity to share this knowledge and heritage with the rest of the world.

In my spare time, I am training to be a professional sommelier so am always on hand to share the best wine pairings and recommendations.

I booked this class for a team offsite. We cooked seafood paella with Edu and Lara and had a great time during this experience. Before the class, they customized the ingredients list to what we get in the local supermarkets. During the class, they were very helpful and made sure the entire group was progressing well, and no one was left behind. Overall we had an enjoyable experience and would highly recommend them.

I have been lucky enough to have an experience in Valencia with Sea Saffron before which I would recommend to anybody, so when I saw they were offering authentic Valencia paella cooking classes I knew I had to try it. Eduardo and Lara made the whole experience so easy, and it honestly felt like cooking at home with friends. Their chemistry is unmatched and their experience and expertise makes you feel right at ease, plus, their calmness and patience is settling and refreshing. They genuinely love what they do, and the fact they can still share that love and knowledge with other people, that really comes across. They seamlessly weave stories of their own, a genuine interest in their clients and a history and passion for paella, and Valencia and its history. At the end of the experience, not only did we come away with a new found appreciation for the complexities and the delicacy of the famous dish, but we had something to show for it! (Although not for long as it was absolutely delicious!) I would thoroughly recommend this experience to anyone; it brings an authentic piece of Valencia into your home in a unique way. Once again, Sea Saffron can't put a foot wrong.
