This class will be your complete guide to mastering authentic Spanish paella and perfecting socarrat.

In this hands-on class with Chef Marc, you'll learn how to cook an authentic Spanish dinner beginning with classic patatas bravas and pan con tomate.

After the starters, you'll begin preparing your paella from scratch using the freshest seafood from top fish companies in San Francisco. You'll learn that paella is at its best cooked at home, made in the traditional way, and that nothing in Spanish cooking compares to carrying a massive pan of golden-brown rice out to the table...except the pleasure of digging in.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Marc was a fantastic host and teacher. The food was fantastic, and Chef Marc made everything seem perfectly easy to understand and reproduce at home. It was also fun to pick his brain about the food and wine in different regions of Spain and learn more about Spanish cuisine in general. My girlfriend and I both had a great time. Highly recommended.

Marc and his girlfriend were great hosts and Marc was a great teacher. He not only taught me how to do those Spanish dishes but also gave me more general cooking tips which I really appreciated. The dishes were soooo good, especially the paella. I would definitely recommend.
