    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.

    What a great way to spend several hours in Valencia. If you like good food and good company I can't recommend this enough. We cooked the Valencia paella though there is fish and vegetarian options also. The trip also included a trip to the impressive Central market.

    Decided to do this on a whim while in town for a soccer match. The class was incredibly fun, from seeing how ingredients are chosen on the trip to the market and then preparing every part of the paella from scratch. The staff is very lively, engaging, and helpful, and the end

    I was called by the school to ask if I wanted to change time/date as no-one else was coming at the same time - I thought just in respect of no-one other than me doing the seafood paella, but as it turned out it was literally no-one else in the class but me! Whilst it would have

    The overall experience was enhanced due to the small group, 4 only. I was impressed with the facility and the fact we had a translator and a chef for the entire workshop. A very hands on approach to the workshop which is what I was looking for. I would highly recommend.
