What you'll do

THE MOST IMPORTANT: YOU COOK THE PAELLA YOURSELF! This is a real experience!

In this awesome experience, I try to reproduce what I have been living and learning myself: paella is not only the name of the dish and the pan itself; it is as well the ritual and joy around this magnificent piece of the Valencian and Spanish culture: ingredients will be explained, cut and cooked in a such way you can live and enjoy every moment of the experience and remember it, so it is worth it and it stays in your memories. You will learn to cook and cook paella as it is done traditionally, because it is part of my culture (I am from Valencia) and I want to transmit it to you.


A funny welcome cocktail fresh prepared with you waits for you at the beginning, it is called "Valencian water". Then I will explain you about rice and paella history, so the cultural immersion starts!

You will be presented which utensils are necessary and how to use them, so there is no danger and everybody is safe.

All ingredients will be introduced, as well as how to cut and cook them. There are 5 steps in the cooking process, which are explained in such a way that everybody can follow them at home. You will receive my support at all times, so that the course is entertaining and easy at the same time.

In the break you will be served the starter and drinks: 1 bottle of wine for 2 people or 2 beer or soft drink cans. Unlimited water.

After the paella is ready, you will eat it, and later on coffee, dessert and some surprises!!

At the end, a diploma will be given to each of the attendees and some more gifts.


P.S. There is the possibility to change the start time.
Other things to note
My cats and I will host you. Good atmosphere, learning and fun!
Please be careful if you are allergic to cats. And as well if you are allergic specially to following food: garlic, fish, shrimps/prawns.. These are indispensable to make the paella

Did you know that paella is the most international dish of Valencia and Spain and is the 4th most sought after recipe internationally? My name is Guillermo Bermell and was born in Valencia. I have been cooking paellas for more than 20 years for my family and friends and in all the places I have visited in the world.
I have created PAELLA LOVER, because I want to show to many people from all around the world what a real paella is and teach them how to cook i . PAELLA LOVER SCHOOL is the 1st Paella School of the Balearic Islands: you cook your own paella and enjoy a menu for the same price. It is a fantastic and funny experience where you learn the secrets to cook the authentic paella!!!

Tolle authentische Erfahrung. Guillermo lehrt einem eine echte und leckere Paella und gibt entscheidende Tipps die man nicht im Internet finden würde. Man fühlt sich durch seine offene und sympathische Art sofort wohl, auch weil man bei ihm privat zu Hause ist. Darüber muss man sich eben auch bewusst sein, dass man nicht in einem Kochstudio ist. Wir empfehlen es unseren Freunden auf der Insel weiter, vor allem weil Guillermo auch Hausbesuche macht! We are Paella Lovers 🤗

Was really fun and I think I ate half of the food in the apartment :) I ordered Paella twice in the restaurants during my stay and in my opinion the one that I prepared with Guillermo guidance was the tastiest one. Looking forward to cooking it for my friends and family with a help of the in-depth materials i received after the lesson.

Es war ein tolles Ergebnis bei Guillermo Paella selbst zuzubereiten. Wir haben viel über die Zubereitung und Geschichte von Paella erfahren. Es war sehr lecker und wir haben uns bei Guillermo wohl gefühlt. Er ist ein guter Gastgeber und es hat an nichts gefehlt.

11/10 experience. Communication with Guillermo was really nice before the experience (asking for preferences, offering options etc.). We had an unforgettable evening cooking an original recipe of Paella. From our experience, we can say that this experience is definitely recommendable leaving us with a nice memory. We kept on talking about the evening for another few days. More to that, Guillermo was nice enough to give us recommendations as to what to visit and where to go. He knows his Paella and he knows his city. If I was to take my friends/family on a trip and wanted them to experience Paella, I would definitely reach out to Guillermo again. Without any doubt. Thank you, Guillermo, and hopefully see you again!

Die Kommunikation mit Guillermo war von Anfang an sehr unkompliziert. Er war total freundlich und entgegenkommend und ist sogar auf Sonderwünsche sofort eingegangen. WIr haben uns alle sehr wohl bei ihm gefühlt, viel neues gelernt und lecker gegessen. Mein Vater war im Vorfeld sehr skeptisch, da er wirklich nie selber kocht und auch er war nachher total begeistert. Dass Guillermo fast perfekt deutsch spricht, hat die Sache für uns natürlich einfacher gemacht. WIr hatten insgesamt einen tollen Tag bei Guillermo, der durch einen guten Tipp von ihm noch sehr schön ausgeklungen ist. Wir werden den Paella-Kurs jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
