We'll work together to create these three my favourite and most famous Catalan recipes:
♥ the legendary Seafood Paella
♥ mouth-watering Catalan starter Pan con Tomate
♥ BEST homemade Sangria
But first, let's go SHOPPING!
We will meet at Boqueria, the oldest and most known Barcelona market, where we will pick up the freshest seafood for our paella. Here I will show you the best quality seafood stalls, the highest quality saffron, Spanish paprika, Spanish olive and truffle oil, renowned Catalan salt with different flavours, a premium quality Iberian Jamón. You will feel like a Spanish: smelling, trying, touching and tasting local products and chatting with my friends- sellers!
After shopping comes the cooking time and we are heading to my kitchen&studio, a unique and beautiful place in antique (more than 150 years old) newly refurbished Catalan building (7min walk).
Now it's a time to get creative with our hands-on cooking session. While enjoying our aperitif we will start with preparing Pan con Tomate and Sangria. Then we will move on to cooking our paella following step by step my family recipe. We will cook together a huge communal paella as real Spanish families do, topping our amazing experience with good wine!
Once ready, we’ll enjoy our creations over a glass of wine (or soft drink), laughing and sharing stories. You will also receive recipes of all dishes we made.
