Paella Experience, The Paella Club Barcelona
The Paella Club offers fully hands-on cooking experiences in the heart of Raval, Barcelona.
The founder Alex Betolaza and executive chef Alex Villar want their clients to learn about Spanish food and culture, and what better than to experience the gastronomic challenge of making Spanish paella from scratch.
Also, they introduce their guests to Catalan produce, and the importance of farm to table dining. Using what we have around us and what’s in season.
The locale of The Paella club is beautiful, it’s an open-plan space with brick wall and high ceiling. The cooking stations are laid out for one or two persons and at the far back is a dining area where the guests sit down together and share their paellas around the table.
On our visit, we lived The Full Menu Experience. We were a mixed group with people from around the world, England, Italy, US and Sweden. Each one of us pulling our little straw to the stack to make it an unforgettable night.
We worked in couples, we made three different paellas to get to know distinctive flavours and produce to work with.
During the cooking Alex kept us refreshed by topping up our glasses with Cava. He also throughout the workshop kept showing us small tips to get a great end result.
By the end of the night we all sat down together and shared a lovely meal. I have to say we all did a great job!
I would truly recommend everybody interested in the art of paella cooking to do a workshop with The Paella Club!
