It’s the official most popular activity in Valencia! Cooking your own Paella is fun, informative and tasty. Buy your groceries in the ‘Mercado Central’ with your expert guide of ‘La Escuela de las Arroces’ and understand what the traditional Valencian Paella is all about.
Get fully informed by the architecture of the impressive ‘Mercado Central’ while loving the smell of fruits, dried ham and all sorts of herbs together. Did you know the original size of a market stand is big enough for one person to fit?
Follow your guide along the old historical center to one of the best restaurants in town ‘La Arroceria Valenciana’ while bringing along your recently bought ingredients to prepare your first ‘Paella’.Under the guidance of the chef de la cuisine, you will be cooking the authentic ‘Paella Valenciana’ while wearing your professional outfit. Get ready to fry the chicken and the rabbit, cut the vegetables and stir the rice at the end. During a small break you’ll be enjoying some delicious tapas and a glass of wine while casually sharing travel stories with the others. Along with some typical Valencian music and the chef’s witty humor, your own paella is ready to be served.
Dig in like a real local does with your spoon and enjoy the typical Valencian salad on the side. It’s time for chit-chat, laughter and a big round of applause for having prepared your first authentic ‘Paella Valenciana’. Hooray!
As a foodie and Paella lover, I can genuinely recommend this activity. It’s worth the 55 euros from start to finish. Foodies, tourists and locals in town will certainly be impressed by the professional set-up. Just give it a try!
