Come and join our cooking experience with a local Grandma (or Grandpa!)

In this vibrant cooking experience one of our Grandmas, assisted and translated by a host, will show you around the Santa Caterina or Boqueria market! Peruse one of the markets that Barcelona is famous for, as we tailor the menu for the experience with the best fresh and seasonal ingredients right before your eyes.

Afterwards, we will make the short walk to the cozy kitchen where we will begin to prepare the food and ingredients for the meal.

Led by Grandma and equipped with an apron, cutting board, and all of the tools necessary, every participant will actively play a role in preparing the dishes amidst chatting and learning not only about the food, but also Barcelona and Spanish culture.

Experience Barcelona's heart and character the best way possible - her food!

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I loved celebrating our first anniversary with Yves and his "grandmother" Clara, learning how to prepare and appreciate some common Catalonian dishes. They were delicious! Book this tour!
