Whether you run study abroad programs operating in Barcelona, or you’re a student host and wish to offer your exchange students a different activity, Cook&Taste study abroad programs offer you what you need.

Our hands-on cooking classes offer the students a great opportunity to immerse themselves into the local culture: under the instruction of our team of chefs, they will get to cook the most typical recipes -such as paella-, discover local gastronomic curiosities and learn all about Barcelona’s history and culture.

More than 15 years of experience offering these experiences for exchange students, an enthusiast team of local professional chefs and a centric beautiful venue in the historical neighbourhood of Barcelona position ourselves as your perfect on-site partner.

What a better way to immerse in Barcelona local culture than learning how to cook a paella?
