What you'll do

Welcome to my Paella experience! Here we will create my absolute favorite and the most beloved Spanish dish around the world - Paella! ALL from scratch, following step by step my family recipe, exactly in the way we did in our family restaurant!

This is so much more than just a live cooking class! I will not only share with you every step of my family recipe but also teach you a lot about the Spanish approach to cooking! While cooking and enjoying a glass of our favorite drink, we’ll talk about Barcelona, delicious Spanish food, culture, traditions, and a lot more!

You can CHOOSE to cook Seafood or Meat Paella, Paella Mixta, or Vegetarian!

My Experience is great for family gatherings or online meetings with your friends and colleagues. Looking to organize a birthday or other party with family and friends while being locked at home? Just let me know and we will make it happen!

Helina is a great chef, an engaging presenter, and a paella expert! You'll have a wonderful time with this class. Just don't skimp on the wine and sangria!

Helina is a wonderful host and helped to make the experience special for our group! I was very impressed by the personalized touches - keeping track of folks who were cooking veg paella vs. meat, and also making sure to ask us in turn how our cooking was going, and share with the group our progress! She was also extremely thoughtful in leaving typed instructions if anyone missed it over the video, and provided us with detailed prep / ingredient lists in advance. It was a very fun experience and I highly recommend it to those who are looking for a fun bonding activity for a group of friends or coworkers!! Also, needless to say, the paella was delicious and I know I will be making it again for years to come.

I booked Helina for two company events. From the people who attended, all the feedback I received were positive. She gave thorough instructions and kept the mood fun and engaging. I for one rarely cook in my life and she made cooking paella a breeze. I definitely recommend her to others who are interested

Great experience! Did this with four separate groups and Helina was able to manage and coach each group's separate cooking experiences across zoom and locations.
