Really wonderful experience, you were all so welcoming despite the crazy circumstances of what was happening outside. We loved learning everything you had to teach us and thank you for making my 16 yr old son feel comfortable. The food was amazing, you created the best atmosphere. I would recommend this experience to everyone. Thankyou so much.
This was a very well rounded cooking class! It was such a special experience to go to the local market and help pick out the ingredients for our Paella. I’m not much of a chef back home and have never made Paella but the chef did a great job explaining the importance of the ingredients and instructing us how to complete each step. The tapas, sangria and dessert was an unexpected bonus! Thank you Mary and Jordi!!! Plus we made friends with the others in the class and ended up spending the rest of the day in Valencia with them!
This was an experience to remember! So well organized and so much fun. We Shopped and learned about ingredients, then made 3 different Paella’s, ate tapas, drank sangria and wine with fun people and an awesome staff. Don’t miss this! And come hungry.
When in Valencia, it is a must to eat paella, but even better, to learn how to make paella yourself. In Holland I am giving cooking classes myself for over 10 years. So I was very curious how I would experience a cooking class given by another cook. Well, it was really a fantastic experience!! I learned so many things and tricks. We started with the tour around the market. Nice to meet he vendors and heard their stories. And to buy there the fresh ingredients. When arriving at the cooking lstudio Chef Ramon already made very nice tapas and Jose prepared a wonderful sangria. I learned how to make paella the Valencian way, and more important, also what not to do (for instance adding lemon). So, this workshop is definitely not a tourist trap, but a very nice, rewarding experience with a lot of fun! Thank you very much Jose, Ramon and Oscar!!
Very hospitable! Very friendly! Every detail taken care of. The cooking experience was so much fun and the shopping in the market was a special experience. Definitely recommend, I would do it again. Thank you
This was one of the nicest experiences ever. We met amazing people from all over the world and it was such fun to cook and eat together. The paella and sangria was excellent! Thank you all for this great day
What an amazing experience!! Mary our guide is spectacular!!! First a super fun market experience. Then we learn how to make sangria and 3 kinds of paella. The food and wines were wonderful and most importantly we made new friends from around the world. If you are in Valencia this is a must stop!!?
What a wonderful experience. Our chef was so patient and talented Abundance of skills and knowledge on both Paella cooking and local traditions. Relaxing atmosphere with some good old banter mixed in. The final product was absolutely delicious eat. Definitely worth trying
My friend and I were vacationing in Valencia and on an impulse signed up for this class. It was one of the best times of our trip! Ramon and Mari were great hosts.. fun, knowledgeable and they made you feel like everyone was part of a little family for the day. Highly recommend to anyone !
We had a great experience here! The teachers were so friendly and engaging. I really think it was a great value for the price. I would definitely recommend it to others
It was a really interesting activity. Mary and Ramon the chef were really sweet. First we went to the market to buy some ingredients then we headed to the kitchen were we started cooking the Paella. We had a blast totally recommend it
Fantastic workshop. José and Ramon were so wonderful! The whole experience could not have been better and we highly recommend it. Shopping at the market, sangria and tapas (yum!), learning about paella and Valencia ... it was a very fun few hours and one of our favorite things in our trip to Spain (and there were many fabulous things). Truly great experience.
Our family group of four all enjoyed this day so much. Learned a lot, and had more than enough to both eat and drink. Ramon had to make three different paella’s and did it so perfect, cannot recommend enough!!
We booked this experience with two families, and 5 children between us. Ramon and Mary did an amazing job of including the children in the experience, (they were able to help with everything). I felt it was good value, sangria and nibbles included, plus a delicious paella lunch with wine is the end result. If you are looking for a fun and relaxed way to learn all about Valencian Paella - this is the place to do it! I would highly recommended My First Paella. Thank you Ramon and Mary.
Fantastic cooking class. Ramon and Mary are excellent teachers in the cooking class. Food produced outstanding. Best meal in Valencia. Great for adults and children alike.
