❀ Angeles ❝I am a professional chef with lot of background. I've been working in a Michelin restaurant in Girona and as a private chef for some celebrities in London❞

We decided to join our energies & in 2016 started a project in common, our amazing kitchen, where we love meeting people & sharing our culture & passion for cooking.

Looking forward to meet you guys!

Where you'll be

We have an amazing kitchen, in the very heart of Barcelona, right next to "Plaza Real" & "La Rambla". Our 70 m2 cooking space is a jewel with more than 200 years old, gorgeous, very comfortable & spacious. It keeps the charm of the majestic old Catalan Modernist style combined with contemporary design. The building appears in a well known best seller book "The Shadow of Wind". When people come in they just say "Wowww what a beautiful place...

정말 즐거운 체험이었어요! 호스트분은 정말 친절했고 맛도 맛있었습니다. 영어로 모든 것을 진행하기 때문에 영어를 못하면 따라가기 조금 힘들 수 있어요 😊 요리에 관심 많으신 분이라면 정말 추천합니다

Carmen was absolutely wonderful! She took us on a quick tour of La Boqueria and gave us tips on vendors that were worth trying. We went the next day and spent the afternoon at the market applying her recommendations! The cooking class was so much fun, we were very glad we did it! Carmen was a blast and the group of other tourists were all very friendly. Felt like we had dinner with a group of friends! The kitchen itself was a gem located in a historic building right next to plaza real. Would highly recommend.

100% would highly recommend! I’ve already shared this with some friends and family who are planning to visit Barcelona in the near future. Carmen is the sweetest person we met during our trip to Barcelona. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her beautiful city, our experience was very unique and truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. During the first part of the experience, we went on an educational tour around la Boqueria and Carmen gave us tons of insider info on the market. After la Boqueria, we went back to the kitchen to start making dinner. We had a fairly large group of 15 people and everyone was able to contribute to the process - whether is was cutting vegetables, prepping the mussels, fixing the sangria, or assembling the taps there was more than enough for everyone to do. Carmen walked us through each step and made sure to answer any and all questions we had in the process. The food, sangria, and the company was great - everyone who booked the experience was American (I hope you all made it back to the US safely). Regardless of everything that was happening outside of the four walls in Carmen’s kitchen, the experience we had was absolutely wonderful. I’ve already recommended this to my friends and family who are planning to visit Barcelona and I would give this 10 stars if I could - totally worth it!

My friends and I did this cooking class while we were on spring break in Barcelona, and it was the highlight of our trip! Carmen was a fantastic host and did everything she could to make it the best experience for all of the guests. It was wonderful that we all got to participate in the cooking, and the food was absolutely delicious. This experience is a must-do if you like cooking, eating, and learning about other cultures!
