La Boqueria is a must! The market tour is very insightful. It was an intimate experience yet provided a culture driven purpose. We went to the market and met the locals while seeing how organized and clean the surroundings were. It was a total different setting from other markets abroad. Besides the tour, it was a really good use of the time to buy fresh ingredients. The kitchen was organized that upon our arrival all the materials and tools were already laid out per student. Chef Ross did a great job of sharing the techniques in cutting, chopping, grating etc. The class was also non-cook friendly and child friendly. My daughter had a great time chopping and cooking. It was a hands on experience with wine tasting afterwards. This was a great experience! Kudos to the staff and Chef Ross! Awesome job!

Lalo was interesting and kept us moving - some background on the food and area and illustrating the steps and we just got to it. Wonderful and possibly best meal in Barcelona!
My husband and I really enjoyed going to the Boqueria market with our chef to pick out the fresh ingredients for our cooking class. We brought everything back to the class and everyone took part in preparing the 5 course meal. The vegetables, fruit, and seafood were so fresh and delicious. We enjoyed local wine as we prepared and eventually ate the results of our labor. We will be recreating the recipes for friends and family.
Really good class, would definitely recommend. The chef was really personable, helpful and gave a great tour of the market.
We enjoyed the tour of the boqueria and learned a lot from our knowledgeable chef and guide, Chef Ross. Besides the tour, it was a really good use of the time to buy fresh ingredients. When we arrived, the tools and equipments where laid out nicely on the kitchen table. Chef Ross did a great job of sharing the techniques in cutting, chopping, grating etc. My son had a great time chopping the peppers and cleaning the mussels. We learned so much from making the potato omelette to cooking the paella. It was a great family experience for us because my son was able to cook with me and his dad. We cannot wait to make them here at home. I highly recommend this cooking class with Chef Ross to others!
This was my first experience through Cookly. Easy to book. The class was fabulous. It was a lot of fun and very hands-on. Plus, I learnt about Catalan culture, food and cooking techniques, I received instruction from a qualified chef, and I got to sit down and enjoy a four course meal with good wine at the end!
Our chef Rose was fun, friendly made it fun for our whole family. She was great at the instruction in the kitchen and in the market choosing our food plus a little history and tourist info along the way. We loved it
