Tour by Yves

My name is Yves Nicolier and I've been offering social cooking experiences since 2010. I am a social cook, focused on cooking experiences. I used to do online marketing consultancy and after 10 years and the birth of my first son, I decided to focus on my passion in life: cooking with people. I am offering different cooking experiences in Barcelona: hands-on cooking classes, market tours, cuisine team building workshops and cooking with Grandmas.

After 6 years offering cooking experiences in Barcelona, I realised that tradition in cooking really matters. People want to know where things are coming from. By having a hands-on cooking class with Grandmas people can truly experience the traditional way of cooking delicious meals.

Grandma’s Cooking Barcelona wants to help to share the tradition in cooking and allow the Grandmas to have a great time and generate some nice extra incomes. We offer hands-on cooking classes with real Grandmas willing to share their culinary secrets of the Spanish and Catalan traditional cuisine.

Meet you in the kitchen!

Check availability of the tour:


In this tradition based cooking experience, you will spend a lovely time with Grandma in the kitchen, assisted by a social cook, who will translate for her and make sure that you are having a great time while learning the traditional cuisine of Spain directly from the source. Every day we will have a Grandma sharing her best recipes with the attendees.

Every participant will have a cutting board, the required tools and an apron to take an active role in the cooking class. After the class, we will share our culinary creations in a group table set and toast honouring the learning we just had from our grandma of the day.

In our hands- on cooking experience, Grandma will teach you to cook a full menu from scratch consisting of a starter, main dish, and dessert. You will taste your creations together as a group with the grandma and her assistant. The dishes will be paired with local wines or refreshments.

Don't miss out a bit of reality of the traditional cuisine of Spain.

A Fantastic Truly Authentic Local Culinary Experience
My wife and I love cooking classes and previously had an amazing experience in Italy with a similar concept--so we searched for cooking classes and grandmothers and stumbled on this! What a fantastic time. Both our translator Lucía and host grandmother Adela were great fun. We made local Catalan seafood-based dishes that turned out delicious!
Amazing experience - Can't miss!
This experience was incredible from start to finish. Yves took care of everything and all we had to worry about was deciding what we wanted to learn to cook, and enjoying the beautiful night!
