Learn how to prepare classic paella and tapas in this feast of Spanish seafood specialties.

Gather in the kitchen for this hands-on cooking class where Chef Luke will teach you how to expertly shop for proper ingredients and prepare a classic seafood paella completely from scratch.

First, create two seafood tapas to enjoy while preparing your paella: Octopus with potatoes and prawns with garlic. Next, you'll combine bomba rice, prawns, scallops and aromatics in a saffron broth and simmer it slowly over a live fire. End your Spanish feast with an indulgent handmade cheesecake topped with a gingery berry-orange compote.

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

Awesome!! This was by far the highlight of our time in Barcelona - and all of our travels in Europe, for that matter. Chef Luke was exceptional and provided incredible instructions. The spectacular view from his patio and the wood-fire grilled paella were all spectacular. We were fortunate enough that Chef Luke was able to secure some super fresh red shrimp, too - a delicacy of the area and incredibly delicious. There is no question that you have to book a class with Chef Luke!

A working chef since the age of 18, Chef Luke has made a home for himself in the kitchen since childhood, when Mediterranean cuisine began to inform his culinary style. By age 20, he had risen the ranks to head chef, eventually opening his own delivery-only restaurant to serve his community during the pandemic downturn. Nothing gives Chef Luke greater joy than creating handmade food and teaching his secrets to budding cooks.
