We join Barcelona Cooking in the heart of Las Ramblas, to learn how to cook some of Spain’s most famous dishes with master chef, Candido Cid. Watch the video to learn how to make Catalan cream or crema Catalana – the Spanish version of crème brûlée. A great option while staying in Barcelona, the school offers English-language cooking classes, where learners can try their hand at making classic dishes and tapas, as well as learn about local wine.

‘The idea of Barcelona Cooking was born from a love for gastronomy and a desire to share it with the world. Launching a recreational cooking school provided the platform to offer unique, fun and memorable cultural experiences to travellers visiting or living in our beautiful city of Barcelona,’ says Candido Cid, Executive Head Chef of Barcelona Cooking Class.

‘We are thoughtful of our carbon footprint and utilise local farms and suppliers for all our products. In our classes, we use fresh, seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Our team understands sustainable principles and practices – “farm to table” is a way of life for us, and we take a lot of pride in the selection of our ingredients. The Catalonia region is rich with farmlands, vineyards, olive groves, and the sea. We are perfectly located to benefit from all these amazing natural resources.

La Boqueria Market is not only a guided tour we offer, but it is also a globally recognised premier market – which we support by purchasing products from the suppliers there,’ Cid explains.
