Can anyone recommend an English speaking Spanish/ Catalan cookery course in Barcelona

Hello Hounds

Wondering if anyone's recently done a cookery course in Barca. I'll be there in Sept 2013 all being well. Just looking for a one day course. Not too fussy about the format. Thanks.

    I know nothing about this but found it a while back when I was considering doing the same thing.

      We did the half day course and it was so much fun. We're experienced cooks and it's not as if we learned a lot of new techniques, but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We made paella and it was delicious (although I know it's not Catalan).

        Great to hear. We loved everything about Barcelona so intend to revisit. I'll save that link. Thanks for chiming in.

      Thanks for the information. Tripadvisor raves about Espai Boisa- anyone tried it?

        Espai Boisa are notorious spammers on CH. I wouldn't trust anything said about them on TripAdvisor.

          In retrospect, maybe 58 reviews on Tripadvisor, all of them 5 stars is a little odd. Has any one (with a history of posting on CH) been to Espai Boisa?
