1/2 day cooking classes in Barcelona?

kayem Aug 22, 2009 11:03 AM

I am a solo traveller who is interested in taking a 1/2 day cooking class in Barcelona.

Any good suggestions? I already tried contacting Cook & Taste and got a message that they were closed for vacations.

Most other classes seem to cater to couple or groups, so I'll be looking for one that can either incorporate me into a larger group or a private class. My budget is around EUR 150.

I am going to be in BCN 3rd Sep - 7th Sep 2009. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    We will be in Barcelona the same time and will be taking a four-hour class on September 4 that starts at the market. It's under $100. It's through www.golearnto.com

    I can't vouch for it but that's when we'll be there and that's what we'll be doing.

      How did your class come out? Would you recommend it? Do you have the direct link to the school?

            The two that I know of are: Cookandtaste and catacurian. I am researching both options at the moment. I will be in Barcelona Feb 21st and am eager to try a couple of cooking classes.

              Several friends visited in October 2009 and signed up for Cook & Taste class. Their menu was 1) tomato soup with smoked cheese, 2) the classic potato and egg tortilla, 3) seafood paella, 4) and a Catalan cream dessert.

              According to them, the class was nice while the recipes were eh. I made the tortilla and soup from the recipes they left in my apartment - not bad, not great, but they seem relatively authentic!

        I know it was long ago, but I was wondering if you would recommend the cooking class you took?

        I can highly recommend Espai Boisa - http://espaiboisa.com/ . We recently took a half-day course and were pleased with the instruction, hands-on time, quality of ingredients, and the proprietors.
