Serious about learning how to cook Spanish and Catalan cuisine? Then this is the experience for you. You will start the day by taking a tour of the world-famous La Boqueria food market, where your Barcelona-born chef and guide for the day will explain some of the unique ingredients that will later go into your cooking. After selecting some of Spain's finest produce you will retire to the nearby kitchens, where the gourmet lessons begin. Here you will be taught how to create a delicious four course meal, with dishes the likes of seared bay scallops with Iberian ham and modern torrija (a kind of Spanish sweetbread) with cinnamon emulsion foam. Ferran Adria would be proud. You'll get to savour several glasses of artisan Catalan wines as you cook, and of course you'll get to dine on your own menu with your fellow classmates. A fantastic experience that has won many a rave review, you can opt for a morning class, which starts at 10am and costs 78 euros, or an evening class, which starts at 6pm and costs 65 euros, but doesn't include the market tour. Run by a trusted Barcelona Life partner, there are limited spaces per session, so email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred dates and group size and you'll hear back very shortly with full details. Now accepting booking for the whole of the 2017 season!
