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

Great Experience
This was one of the best tours we took while on our Spain adventure. We met the chef, Yves, at the market where he showed us around and explained what our choices for our meal would be. We decided on a main course and some sides and after picking up the required ingredients, Yves took us to his home on a hill overlooking the city. We started off with a welcome drink on his rooftop patio with an amazing view. Then we all went down to the kitchen where he gave us aprons and we all helped cook our meal. The food was wonderful, Yves' house is amazing and we all enjoyed the meal and the company. We would highly recommend this tour and will definitely do it again if we ever go back to Barcelona.
Not to be missed!
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Yves! First we did a tour of the market where Chef Yves explained everything about the local produce. He suggested numerous dishes that we could prepare (all sounded amazing!) and once we chose what we wanted, we bought the products and drove to his house for the cooking experience. We ended up preparing - a steak with foie gras, razor clams, artichokes with squid and monkfish in the oven. All tasted great and we are going to try cooking the artichokes today for dinner at home :)
One of my most enjoyable and memorable experiences in Barcelona
My nephew told us this is a 'not to be missed experience'. He was right. Yves expertly helped us choose a menu we all liked and lead us through the market choosing the best ingredients. We returned to his lovely house and he involved us all in cooking the meal.
The ambiance was lovely from music, wine, city views, gourmet kitchen and conversation. Best of all the food was delicious and we had learned how to cook it! This is a NOT TO BE MISSED EXPERIENCE!
