Activities Barcelona - Paella Cooking Workshop Barcelona

This workshop aims to transmit the knowledge of how to make an Spanish traditional paella, sangria and catalan cream, interacting with the chef of the activity in a fun and dynamic way.


    Spanish Paella is one of the most loved dishes in all of Spain. In this 3 hours paella cooking workshop you can learn how to make it here in Barcelona with a hands on experience where you are the chef! Using only the best local ingredients from the open air markets your chef will show you how to prepare everything. As well, you get to do this class inside an exclusive professional kitchen and enjoy the elegant dining room that offers you a special atmosphere to enjoy your delicious Spanish cooking experience.

    You will lean how to make all of the following Spanish dishes (and drinks):

    – Traditional Sangria: Spanish Sangria is made with ripe and delicious fruit that Spain is so famous for. Our chef will guide you in making it the right way to truly capture the full flavor of fresh fruit mixed with wine and liquors.

    – Spanish Paella: You get to be the chef and learn hands on how to make a Paella with your personal chef. Using only the best local ingredients you will prepare a delicious and spectacular seafood Paella rice (we also offer meat and vegetable or vegetarian paella if desired).

    – Crema Catalana: While Crema Catalana (Catalan Cream) is native to Catalonia it is a favorite all around Spain and you will see why when you learn how easy and fun it is to make. With hints of cinnamon and lemon and a crispy burned sugar crust on top it is an irresistable treat that you get to learn how to make in your cooking class.

    Take a Market Tour with us. You also have the option to visit the famous open air markets in Barcelona with your chef, meet local vendors and learn about the wide variety of ingredients used locally. This option has an extra cost of 20€ per person.

    Excellent experience in Barcelona

    BcnDreams Tours also arranged a paella cooking class for us with Josh that was an exceptional experience. Not at all touristic — rather we prepared what was the best quality paella we have ever eaten, and we have tried paella in many places! Josh was very personable and a good instructor. We made a great sangria and crema catalana as well, and enjoyed it all with him in a very relaxed setting.
