I’m a chef & founder of www.PaellaBarcelona.com cooking school and a real foodie.

Having been a Paella chef in our family restaurant for a decade, then running my Paella Experience https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/378164 for several years; today I can firmly claim: I’ve been cooking paella for almost half of my life!

My daughter Mary, who is a chef & passionate food lover, is my primary support in our @paella.BCN cooking experience! We both are in love with food and have our cooking YouTube show.

In our sold-out Barcelona Paella Experience, we have hosted hundreds of home-cooked dinners for more than 5000 guests from all over the world. We received 1462 reviews, 97% of which are 5star!

We loved this paella class and hope to take another cooking class with Helina, in future. The preperation requirements were very clear and the accompanying videos to help you prep for the class were very thorough and easy to follow. Helina knows how to make the experience fun and enjoyable, whilst giving the right amount of attention to help you create a delicious paella!
