Cooking with Marta. Paella Barcelona style.
Today was a cooking class with Marta, on her balcony in the beautiful sunshine. We rode there on our bikes only 10 mins from home.Marta's Private Paella Cooking Classes

It was created by grabbing whatever bits of meat, veg and fish people had available to them and using rice to bring it all together. Over time it's been refined and claimed by all sorts of people around Spain as their own. The great thing about paella is that you can make it your own by taking the principle of it and adjusting it using your favorite ingredients in season and around you. This dish is not difficult to make, despite what you have heard or read. Join the class. It is a fantastic way to socialize, to learn a great recipe that will impress your friends, and most of all, have fun. The class will be in English and Spanish. What a great way to learn and practice a language!!!!Marta's Private Paella Cooking Classes DINE WITH THE LOCALS: A CULINARY WORKSHOP IN PAELLA WITH MARTA
Marta, a petite Barcelona native fluent in three languages, welcomes any and all into her home for the joyous culinary experience of paella. The Spanish dish often frightens many due to its overwhelming nature of ingredients, but Marta brings such an ease and patience to the dish. Guests have the option to help in the cooking process or just sit back and enjoy, but trust me, it is quite worth it to see how the dish comes together. While the food is fresh and bright, and Marta is delightful and vibrant, it is the experience as a whole that is unforgettable.
