This was a wonderful experience. Alicia, our instructor was a delight. She is bright and fun and filled with so much knowledge that she was happy to share with us. Learned so much about the cooking of Catalan food and the ingredients that are used. Besides the delicious food we learned to cook each night, the school included fantastic meals... More
