Barcelona Cooking: a different experience in BCN

Now you can dine out in a different way. Barcelona Cooking in Les Rambles 58 (METRO Liceu) offers hands-on recreational cooking classes while enjoying the chef's explanations and socializing with other people.

I enjoyed one of this sessions last Friday and I recommend it absolutely. Chef Candido's sessions are held in English.

I think Barcelona Cooking could be a great place for our next gathering. What do you think?
