What does a cookery session consist of? Barcelona, the city of style and design, is also home to one of the most famous food markets worldwide: La Boqueria (or Saint Joseph’s Market). This market is a weekly staple for any foodie: let your eyes and nose guide you as you amble between succulent fresh fruits and vegetables to the fish stands where you can find the freshest Norwegian cod unparalleled even at in its home country. To us, a trip to this market isn’t complete without picking up wild mushrooms, ripened cheeses, and some unusual goodies at Puri’s.
Let our renowned pro chef be your exclusive guide through the market, followed by an exquisite menu – totally customizable and influenced by the market’s freshest products, your tastes, and the culinary skills of your celebrity chef whose kitchen atelier is at a gorgeous ancient building in the hearts of the Gothic quarter is a gem.
Who is the chef?
He is a well-versed specialist in Catalan cuisine, having worked at well renowned restaurants and working nowadays as a gastronomic consultant.
- Enjoy an extraordinary cooking class inspired by history and cross-cultural influences.
- Get an authentic picture of Barcelona daily food and life scene.
- Use the best seasonal ingredients: we respect the environment and natural cycle so the menu is always different depending on the market.
The Chef will meet you either at your hotel or apartment and take you to La Boqueria food market where he knows every corner and every stall.
Once the educational market tour and shopping are done, you’ll walk “home” to his private kitchen atelier and start all the preparations while chatting. It will take you around three hours to prepare lunch. Don’t be surprised if bottles of cava or wine are spontaneously uncorked during the class!
Once the meal is ready, relax and enjoy the lunch paired with some more of our favorite local wines.
What type of food will we cook? You will focus on Mediterranean local specialties, or prepare any themed session according to your preferences. The final menu will be decided in consultation with you.
