Originally from Canada and born to Spanish parents, I moved to San Sebastian to carry out my culinary degree at the Basque Culinary Center, a culinary university. After graduating, I moved to Copenhagen to work at restaurant noma. After 2 years in in Denmark, I decided to move back to Spain and share the knowledge I gained throughout my culinary career with other like-minded people who love to eat and cook.

The other Alex is Barcelona born but world taught, he has worked in restaurants from London all the way to Aspen!
He is the master of wine and will make sure your glass is always full!!

This experience is 100% worth it ! Don’t hesitate, just book it! Alex and Fernando is the best. You’ll make your own paella, and meet awesome people. If you’re a Solo traveler like me, don’t worry don’t worry it’s so much fun.

Absolutely phenomenal. Some of the best food i've eaten and the hosts helped walk everyone through the cooking process and made it super simple, easy, step-by-step instructions. Ingredients were phenomenal and that made the final paella absolutely delightful. The appetizers and desert were excellent as well. A never-ending class of cava didn't hurt either!

Très bon emplacement pour visiter Barcelone, immeuble sécurisé. Pas d'ascenseur, renseignez vous pour savoir à quel étage se trouve votre appartement. Alvaro nous a aidé à trouver une place de parking et nous a bien renseigné sur la ville.

DO THIS!!!! So so so fun…. How can you go wrong with delicious paella and bottomless cava in Barcelona??? The staff was phenomenal- enthusiastic, helpful and fun. They know their stuff. You get to cook your own paella but also sample those of the other people cooking…. Paella negra with seafood, veggie paella, duck paella and others. In addition, they feed you delish gazpacho, pan con tomate bread, and a fab dessert. My wine glass was never empty from the moment I arrived to the time I left. The space is very cool and clearly custom built for these experiences. I’d go back again to do this in a heartbeat. I’d say this was probably in my top 2 things we did in Barcelona. I’ve done lots of cooking courses in Europe and other parts of the world, but this was definitely amongst the most fun (and most yummy). My friend’s 20-something year old kids that were with us also seemed to have a blast and made friends with other millennials doing the class and went out after for more drinks and fun… us old people went home to bed full of rice and good cava. Priceless!

This was my first cooking class but it was so much fun! All of the hosts did nothing short of an amazing job. I’m really surprised I had this much fun at a cooking class. I would definitely go again when I’m back in town.
