We are convinced that to be familiar with a country you have to know its cuisine and it is certainly not you who will disagree with us. We also think that to know the typicity of a cuisine it is not enough to go to its best restaurants. Cooking is above all a technique that one must learn to understand its subtleties. Introducing you to Catalan and Spanish cuisine is the subject of this page dedicated to the best cooking classes we have selected for you in Barcelona.

The same creative craziness behind the stoves as in architecture!

If you want to understand Catalan cuisine, a parallel is immediately obvious. We know Gaudi's creative genius: Sagrada Familia, the Casa Batllo, the Pedrera: the apogee of Catalan Art Nouveau. The story is similar for Catalan cuisine. As a leader, Ferran Adrià has transformed Catalan and world cuisine. His "New Cuisine" or "molecular cuisine” has transformed the way we taste, smell and eat. The best chef in the world, in his restaurant El Bulli, has launched a revolution that many other chefs have since followed to make Barcelona one of the most foodie cities in the world. More than 20 starred chefs and as many restaurants to name but a few: Alkimia, Moments, Caelis, ABac, Lasarte, Cinc Sentits, Roca Moo, Dos Palillos, Gaig..
