Chef Joni guides you on a culinary journey to the heart of Spain in this sumptuous, in-person cooking class. She'll demonstrate how to prepare an authentic Spanish spread with a primo paella in the starring role!

This lesson begins with a tapas sampler board featuring manchego cheese, serrano ham and piquillo peppers. Then, it's on to Joni's smoky surf-n-turf paella, with chicken, chorizo, shrimp and scallops all sharing the pan. A vegetarian version will include roasted artichoke hearts and savory vegetables. Finish your flavorful journey with a Valencia orange cake — a paleo version of tarta de Santiago, a classic Spanish dessert.

Chef Joni was a pleasure to cook with. She was inviting and warm. I surprised my husband with the Italian cooking class for his birthday and we had such a wonderful time. Cooking the ragu, making homemade pasta and tiramisu was so special to us. We are looking forward to another class with her and definitely recommend her to everyone.

Chef Joni was amazing!! 110% recommend taking her cooking. My boyfriend and I took her paella class and boy was it fun! We had her come to our home to help us celebrate our 4 year anniversary. We started with the cheese platter which tasted amazing and she taught us what goes well together and definitely introduced us to amazing products! Then we moved on the sangria to sip throughout the night. She taught us so many new skills especially with cutting, which was something new for the both of us. Chef Joni was energetic and knowledgeable about cooking and we had such a memorable time with her. After getting the paella pretty much done we decorated and platted our dessert which was a blast, we definitely got to be creative with this part and the dessert was so yummy. Overall we loved every minute of our time with CHef Joni and would definitely take another one of her classes.
