Me and my sister Clara come from a long line of passionate food lovers in our family. In fact, I enjoy cooking so much that twelve years ago I quit my job as an interior designer to share it full time by hosting workshops. Now, my sister did the same and has joined me as a co-host.
I’ve been doing this experience almost 7 years with Airbnb and more than 10 by myself. After all this years, I’ve been cooking with people all around the world and I feel that I’m traveling from home doing what I love more, cooking!!!
Now, my sister Clara, who has returned from Mexico after living and cooking there for several years, is here to follow the lead and present to you the authentic paella.

Where you'll be

Welcome to my family home and secret garden, an inner-city oasis! We’ll be using my spacious semi-professional kitchen and garden to enjoy the experience together.
“La Salsamenta” (our space) is located at 5 minute walking distance from Gaudi’s Park Güell, so it’s a good idea to plan a visit to this amazing park before or after attending to our Paella experience!

What a fantastic time! The very finest in Catalan hospitality. Our host was incredibly generous with her time, experience, home, food, and wine. This is a MUST for anyone visiting Barcelona!

Excelente experiencia. Clara nos recibió en su hermoso jardín, nos enseño su receta familiar para hacer paella mientras bebimos un buen vino, unas ricas tapas y por supuesto la estrella que fue la paella. Compartimos además junto a un agradable grupo de personas de diversos lugares, lo que hace a la experiencia aún más rica. Todos ellos y Clara super buena onda. Lo recomiendo 100%

This experience is a perfect way to dive into local culture, highly recommended! Our host Clara is a nice and kind, she told us stories behind Paella as well as some interesting facts about her country, Spain. Also, the location is relatively close to city center, you can easily access by bus. We spent a great time with Clara and other lovely participants.

The entire experience was so great! Clara was very welcoming and knowledgeable about Paella. I appreciated the history behind the Paella and cooking it with the group in such a pleasant setting. The tapas, Paella, and the drinks were great. Thank You Clara for giving us the opportunity to have a nice authentic Spanish meal with food and conversation!

I loved this experience! From the delicious wine to the tapas and of course the paella, this experience is a highlight of my month in Spain and I recommend it to everyone! Clara is so sweet and I loved being in this family home-it felt so intimate while also being very CoVid safe since it’s an outdoor space! She is an amazing host!
