The instructor gave us a great tour of the market before starting the class. I had never made paella before and left with two jars of saffaron so I could repeat the recipe at home! I think this class is perfect for anyone wanting to add a bit of Spanish flare to their next dinner party.
Highly recommended - something different to do from the usual tourist activities while in Madrid.... Host Eduardo takes you through the steps to produce a number of typical tapas dishes, which you get to enjoy once completed.... a very pleasant way to spend a little time in Madrid ....
The cooking class in Madrid was fantastic. Me and my companions reserved the Paella cooking class, which starts at 10am to 2pm and we enjoyed every minute. Our instructor Laura was the best. We spent the first hour at the market, learning about the produce, meats, fish, and poultry that would be used in our dishes. Along with lessons on what is locally grown and how they are used in Spanish cooking. We than return to the classroom to prepare Sangria, Gazpacho and Paella. Our class consisted of 7 students and we laughed, learned and loved every minute. I would highly recommend this activity to any family or friends travelling to Madrid and if Im ever fortunate enough to return, I would like to take the afternoon Tapas class.
Great job Cooking Point ES!
We loved this cooking class!! A hands on experience with experienced instructors who have a passion for cooking. Class starts with a tour of the market which was so interesting and a great way to start the class. You make your own food with your partner which I liked a lot. A wonderful experience to have in Madrid to really understand Spanish culture and food.
The cooking class at Cooking Point was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain. The proprietor of the store taught our class and he made it a culinary, cultural and comedic experience. There were 7 people in our class, 3 individuals who came alone, a mother-daughter team and myself and my best pal. All of us had a terrific time and left with not only a fun memory but easy to cook at home recipes. Go hungry and with an easy attitude and you'll have a blast, too!
