We will visit the architectural masterpiece, Park Guell,designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and built between 1900-1914. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Suite and is something you have to see in person to truly appreciate.
We love finding the most authentic cooking experiences and this one is no exception. We will source ingredients from one of the cities best fresh food markets. From there we will go to a locals home where we will have appetizers, and will learn how to prepare the Spanish "bread with tomato". We will make sangria together and the delicious Catalan cream for desert while we wait for the paella with wine or a beverage of your choice.
