Barcelona Gastronomy and Cooking Classes

Posted on: March 5th, 2014 by Kathryn Jobson

A visit to Barcelona is one of the highlights of any visit to Spain.  This historic yet cosmopolitan and modern city is famous for the modern art and architecture of Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, Picasso and Dali.

However, Barcelona also has an amazing gastronomic history that offers a significant insight into the culture and customs of the Catalan people.  A cooking class is a fun way to get in touch with the gastronomical habits of the locals.  Cooking classes include:

  • a guided tour of the famous Boqueria market where students select local ingredients to use in the cooking class
  • preparation of typical Catalan dishes, such as gazpacho, paella and Catalan cream
  • preparation of typical tapas dishes, such as tortilla, calamares, empanada and pintxo
  • tasting of all the dishes prepared
  • working with a local chef

A cooking class can really bring a better understanding of the Spanish culture and gives students a truly Spanish experience.
