It was such a great experience learning about the market and shopping for ingredients. The atmosphere of the kitchen is wonderful as is chef Juan. A must do in Barcelona!
Highlight of our Trip
I cannot say enough good things about this experience. Without a doubt, it was the highlight of our trip! We so much enjoyed the trip to the market, the education we received about how the market came to be and the strategic location of all of the food booths and the Chef himself. Our Chef was the best! He was friendly, informative and had a great personality. We would do this again in a heartbeat!
