Food & Cuisine

When it comes to Spanish food, there is nothing more traditional than the delicious paella!
Meet your private, experienced chef and, in the comfort of a private kitchen located in the heart of Madrid, learn how to make this mouthwatering Spanish dish as well as a starter, a dessert and Sangria (for the parents!).
Once your apron is on, follow the instructions of your chef as you work to make the most of this Spanish meal. While your children break the eggs for the potato omelet (tortilla), you will be working on the Sangria. And while the kids make the Crema Catalana, a kind of crème brulée, you will be chopping the vegetables and seafood for the delicious paella!
The cooking class ends with a meal. All you need to do sit down, relax and enjoy what you have cooked. It is a well-deserved paella that everyone in your family can be proud of!

Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones in the cooking school, along with your private chef (and assistant).

Do the parents participate?

Of course! Everyone will get their hands deliciously dirty. Teamwork makes a great meal. Depending on the age of the children, parents might be the only ones allowed to use knives or get close to the stove or oven.

How big is the meal?

The quantity of food prepared and served is equivalent to a healthy portion for adults. It is a 3-course meal, so you won’t feel hungry at the end.

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

Because this cooking class involves knives, fire, pots and pans, it is not recommended to bring very young children. However, as long as they stay at a safe distance from anything dangerous, they are more than welcome to join. Sheets of paper and crayons are there if they feel more like an artist than a chef.

Can you make gluten free meals / can you cope with food allergies or other intolerances?

We can adapt to any food allergy or intolerance as long as this information has been given to us prior to the day of the activity. If information is given during the cooking class, your chef will do their best to adapt to your needs and tastes.

Can you make kosher meals (or any other special meals)?

Yes we can. Here too, please give this information ahead of time so the adapted ingredients can be purchased.

Do we need to bring special material or ingredients?

No. All you need to bring is a big smile and the will to prepare a delicious meal. We will take care of the rest. Should the parents want to bring their own wine, please feel free to do so.

Do we get the recipes of what we prepared?

Of course, we will send you the recipes by email once the baking class is over (this might take a few days, especially if we have to translate the recipes)

Will my teenage kids like the activity?

Preparing a good meal is a quality that everyone should have. If they do not like cooking, this might be a great way to get them to start liking it, as it is always a useful skill to have
