USD 64.77
Overview
Get a taste of authentic Spanish culture during this 4.5-hour Paella cooking class in Valencia, the birthplace of the famous rice dish. Shop for ingredients at the Central Market alongside your guide and group, and then head to the kitchen to learn how to turn simple ingredients into a delicious meal with deep cultural roots. This tour includes all instruction, ingredients, food, and drinks during the class.
What to Expect
Meet your bilingual guide at 10am at the Valencia School of Rice and Paella, and walk together to Central Market for a guided tour. Spend approximately one hour exploring this bustling market and collecting the necessary ingredients for your recipe. A hub of Valencia agriculture, the best quality ingredients for paella can be found here. Around 11am, return to the kitchen and learn the process of cooking a real Valencia Paella (the original Paella), which you will then cook for yourself.

Relax and have fun as you cook with your group and learn from an expert chef about the makings of an authentic Paella. During the cooking process, indulge in a tasting of Valencia white wine served with a traditional appetizer. Once finished cooking the paella, sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Complement your meal with a taste of Valencia red wine. The paella will be served accompanied by several starters and a traditional and delicious dessert.

Upon completion of the experience, you will receive a diploma certifying your new cooking skills. Experience ends at the cooking school at approximately 2:30pm.

Yes absolutely. There were children at our day and as the Spanish adore children they were made to feel special and were given extra attention. Your daughter will have a ball!

Next to your resort, there is a metro/tram station. Take the metro to the city center and from there it is just an easy walk to the school! It’s in the middle of the historic city centre. Have fun😁👍🏻
