Barcelona Market Tour and Cooking Class
Begin your day with a vivid, hands-on plunge into the culinary traditions of Spain with a market tour and cooking class! The first hour is spent weaving through the colorful stalls of a famous fresh produce Market where you will accompany your chef instructor in buying the fresh products for your Paella lesson. Vegetables bursting with flavor and dusted with dirt from nearby farms. Seafood of the highest caliber. Iberian jamón so rich and succulent that the delicate, hand-carved slices practically melt in your mouth. After the market tour, you return to the beautiful teaching kitchen mere blocks away to cook up the most iconic dish of Spain. As the ingredients change with the seasons, each class highlights the flavor of the classics with a touch of modernism, leaving you with a picture-perfect final meal to be shared with your mates.


  • Private tour through an iconic open-air market with your English speaking chef / guide
  • Learn the cultural and culinary history of Barcelona and Catalunya
  • Enjoy a hands-on cooking lesson in a private kitchen mere blocks from the market
  • Savor the final meal with a glass of wine and recipes in hand!

My wife and I went on a private tour from Barcelona into the Pyrenees booked through Catavino. Our guide, Alexandra Ferreiro, was excellent: personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. She was also mindful of my physical limitations. And she was a lot of fun. We learned a lot from her. It would be difficult to find a better guide.
