What you'll do
With the COVID-19 pandemic, I had to shut the doors of my famous Seafood Paella & Sangria experience for the next few months. However, there is nothing that can stop us from cooking together, all thanks to the magic of the Internet! So grab your phone, tablet or laptop, head to your kitchen, and get ready for the most amazing livestream cooking of your life! This is so much more than just a live cooking class. We will create together my absolute favorite and the most beloved Spanish dish around the world - Paella! I will not only share with you every step of my family recipe, but also teach you a lot about the Spanish approach to cooking! While cooking and enjoying a glass of our favorite drink, we’ll talk about Barcelona, delicious Spanish food, culture, traditions, and a lot more! At the end of the experience, you’ll make friends from around the world without even leaving your home! This experience is great for family gatherings from a distance or online meetings with your friends and colleagues. Looking to organize a birthday or other party with family and friends while being locked at home? Just let me know and we will make it happen! PS. You can choose if you’d like to cook Seafood or Meat paella or maybe you prefer paella Mixta, where you will combine seafood and meat together, or Vegetarian paella!

Ten years ago, I moved to sunny Barcelona and married a charming Spanish man. Running our small family restaurant for a decade, I found out that cooking had always been my calling in life! In 2018 I decided to bring my two lifelong passions - delicious food and meeting people - into my own project: Seafood Paella & Sangria experience https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/378164 Since then I’ve cooked and shared delicious food with more than 5000 guests from all over the world and got 1462 reviews, 97% of which are 5-star reviews! Check my website PaellaBarcelona.com and my Instagram @paella.BCN While I'm also "stuck" at home, this experience is the online version of my live Airbnb class, as I’m eager to share my passion for Spanish food and culture with you even during social distancing!
