So much fun during this cooking class! We had an amazing time walking through the market - tasting a few bites and learning about the food. Then when we got back to the beautiful and easy to get to location, there were some tapas ready for us to eat and try. So delicious and a great way to learn all of the culture behind the different regions and foods. The cooking was so fun and we had a great group - the chef was so fun and easy to learn from and our group was a great batch! I was with my mom and it was a great experience for us. 100% would recommend!
Best experience in Barcelona!

Our cooking class with Just Royal BCN was not just the highlight of our time in Barcelona, but the most memorable part of our entire trip through Spain! Not only did we get to make and eat delicious food, there was so much fun and laughter and our group stayed for an hour after the class ended just drinking and talking. It was amazing beyond words, taking this cooking class is a must!
Great cooking experience

My sister and I had a cooking class with Gretel this week. We had a wonderful time, first walking through Mercado de Boqueria, tasting jamon and torrón. Then, we went to the school to start our dishes. We had many tapas to start, then we cooked a tortilla, a paella, and creme catalana for dessert. You will definetly have enough food for the day :)
Wine and soft drinks were also included!

Thank you Gretel & team for having us! We wish you all the best!
Outstanding experience

Our experience was outstanding, the class was fun and interactive, the Chef was funny and knowledgeable, he explained the foods from the different regions in Spain, had tapas prepared for us with great wine and then we proceeded to cook a tortilla española, bread with tomato and garlic, crambule, and seafood paella. Everything was delicious, we really had a great time. The group that attended the class was nice too. We laughed and learned for about 3-4 hours, time flew since we were having a great time
I really recommend this class to anyone who visit Barcelona.
Absolutely Wonderful
