We joined Barcelona Cooking, located on Las Ramblas street, to learn how to cook some of Spain’s most famous dishes with Executive Head Chef Cándido Cid. In this video we learn how to make Gazpacho. This soup first originated in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia, consists of a mix of raw vegetables and bread, and is served cold. The school holds cooking classes in English several times throughout the day, covering topics from tapas dishes to hearty Spanish fare. If you’re looking to learn more about the food that put Spain on the culinary map, Barcelona Cooking is the ideal place to visit while staying in the city.
Chef Cid had this to say:
“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 travelers visiting or living in our beautiful city of Barcelona. We are thoughtful of our carbon footprint and utilize 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 recognized premier market—which we support by purchasing products from suppliers there.”
