Classes are only held in-house for guests at Luxury holiday apartment Bougainvillea. Join me for a real hands-on cooking class topped off by a sumptuous meal and some local wines, all enjoyed on the terrace under the blue Barcelona skies and surrounded by my kitchen garden in full bloom. Expect to get your hands dirty, master new skills, learn about unusual and exotic ingredients and have a great time doing it. Classes are taught in English or Spanish and sizes are kept small so even the most novice cook can be catered to.

Get an insider´s view of the world´s oldest & most famous working food market, El Mercat de Sant Josep or La Boquería, as it is known locally. Take in the amazing array of foods on offer and the ever evolving palate of the market as the seasons change and new ingredients take centre stage. Sample an array of local foods, try new things and uncover the secrets to Catalan & Spanish cuisine. Once we have sampled all the riches of the market we will then take a stroll through the city´s Gothic quarter to some specialty food shops to sample even more delights and finally polish off this heady experience with a wine & cheese tasting in Barcelona´s cutest cheese shop. Duration of walk is around 3 hours. Prices upon request. Tuesday – Saturday only. Groups must be kept to a maximum of 6 people.
Secret Tapas tour
Take an afternoon or evening stroll way off the tourist track with me to find out what it really means to enjoy tapas in Cataluña. You will be surprised and delighted to by what you find. To go for tapas takes on many different forms through-out the Iberian Peninsula and customs and food types vary greatly from region to region. Come and discover the secret of tapas and rub shoulders with the locals – and don´t forget to bring an appetite, you´ll need it! Duration of walk is around 3 hours. Prices upon request. Tuesday – Saturday only. Groups must be kept to a maximum of 6 people.
Break bread like a local
All too often when we travel we find it almost impossible to access the real local food culture because we don´t understand what is on the menu, we can´t communicate with the waiters or we don´t know which restaurants serve authentic cuisine – places where only the locals eat. Come dine with me and have that truly authentic dining experience you crave. Tell me what kind of foods you want to discover and I will choose the perfect venue to suit your tastes. I will deal with the language barrier, decode the menu and demystify local dining etiquette, all the while enjoying great food and lively conversation. Duration of the meal is around 2 hours. Prices upon request. Tuesday – Saturday only. Groups must be kept to a maximum of 6 people.
