Must do while in Barcelona!
My friend and I were looking for something unique to do while traveling in Barcelona. We came across Grandma's Cooking and decided to give it a shot! Yves was an excellent host and made sure that our night was incredible. We prepared a traditional Catalan meal with our Grandma and then had an enjoyable dinner. The conversation during dinner was also a highlight for me. I think it is a great way to immerse yourself and experience a different culture. Our Grandma had a great sense of humor, but also made sure that we were learning her cooking style and secrets. I recommend this to anyone looking for something different and fun to try while in Barcelona. We would definitely do this again and any other event run by Yves!
Great experience, wonderful people, fun night out with our kids!
What a fun night! Veronica, Cali and the rest of the crew welcomed us and our kids with warmth and kindness into their lovely kitchen, where we spent a fun evening cooking the most delicious meal. Cali was spectacular. I loved learning some of her special family recipes (the meatballs!!), and my kids felt right at home. After 10 days of restaurant eating on our vacation, this was a welcome change of pace. Surprisingly relaxing and full of laughs. Thank you for a fantastic evening! Highly recommend!!
Fantastic experience

Yves – talented chef and host with a big heart
My son recommended Yves as an experience not to be missed. Our day with him exceeded all expectations!! My two sisters and I met Yves at the Boqueria to explore the bountiful choices, commiserate on which menu we wished to create, shop, and it all miraculously took shape with Yves at the helm. Our afternoon of cooking was glorious, the outcome was a lunch I will always remember. Yves cooks with all heart and inspires us all. Thank you Yves, and kisses to you and your lovely family!
Wonderful Family Cooking Experience
Our family of 6 (including my mother in law) recently met up with Yves in Barcelona. It was so great to shop a local farmers market with a local and learn about all the types of ham and fish, which can be overwhelming when you're trying to figure it out yourself, especially in another language. Yves is very knowledgeable and made it fun and interesting for all of us. The kids really enjoyed it too and were so enthusiastic about the cooking process which takes place in his beautiful home (with incredible views of Barcelona)!! The whole experience was such a treat.
