Catalonian meals are amazing — paellas, tapas, wine — what more could you want? For me, I wanted to know how I could have this experience when I returned home. More importantly, I share my experiences in Barcelona with my friends. So, I was very excited to find Cook & Taste cooking school. The school is located in the Barri Gotic area of Barcelona, very close the Cathedral. What a great way to spend a few hours in Barcelona and truly fall in love with this amazing food!
The morning started with a trip to the Boqueria market. While this is “extra”, it was so cool to go through this market with someone who could share with us so much about the market and the different food available. Learning about different types of olives, eggs, ham, fish .. I could go on about this part but I would then miss all the fun of the actual cooking!
So then it was time to learn how to cook — from tomato soup to potato tortillas with tomato bread to 2 types of paellas — fish and vegetarian — to creme Catalan. Wow .. it was so much fun. Lots of stories, laughter and basic cooking.
And did I mention the wine?
If you like to cook — this is a great experience!
