Born To Cook - Barcelona
Something you may not know about me is that I'm a food channel fanatic and I frequently take cooking classes when I get the chance. One dish that I have specifically been wanting to learn how to make is Paella, the traditional Spanish rice staple.... and now living in Spain, I decided it was a necessity to learn.
My two girlfriends (who also love to cook) recently came to visit me from LA so I thought, what better time to learn and immerse ourselves into Spanish culture than to learn to cook some authentic Catalan dishes. So when passing by this adorable cooking school, Born to Cook, in my neighborhood, we decided to drop in and sign up! They told me this cooking course would be very hands on.. and that was an understatement. First of all, we visited local markets in the area to collect all the fresh ingredients and taste and sample foods we would be using. So you are not only learning how to make these dishes, but also about the local culinary culture and the significance of the ingredients they use. Also, since Paella takes quite a while to cook, they supplied us with plenty of Olive oil and wine tastings. I was in heaven!
All in all, we had a wonderful time! If you find yourself in Barcelona, this place is a MUST! And it's a for all ages! Thank you again for having us Born to Cook!
