The Private Mallorca: Making Paella: Cooking Class with a Local tour starts and ends in Mallorca. The Private Mallorca: Making Paella: Cooking Class with a Local is a food tour that takes 4.5 hours.

Paella is more than just a meal — it’s a celebration! It’s what locals in Mallorca eat on Sundays with family, or during festivals and holidays. And we want you to celebrate this culture with your own special private paella day! Join a local chef in his family home and learn how to make this famous Mediterranean dish. They say the glory of the “Mastro Paellero” (the cook) can last for days or even weeks after his or her meal, depending on the quality of the paella. How about you? Think you have what it takes to be a Mastro Paellero for a day?!
This tour is priced for a minimum group size of four travellers. A solo traveller or group smaller than four may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for four travellers.

ITINERARY

Your Mallorca cooking class begins when you meet your guide at the home of our Paella chef in the beautiful Sierra Tramuntana mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage area famous for its panoramic vistas. It’s here that your local chef, Ramon, will welcome you into his stone house, in a little village hidden in the mountains. If the weather’s nice 9which is frequently is in sunny Mallorca!), we’ll cook outside in the yard; if not, we’ll get cosy indoors and cook in the kitchen. This is the perfect way to discover how Mallorcans live, cook and eat.

Ramon ensures you feel comfortable and gives you some simple tasks as he explains the whole process of cooking a meat paella from start to finish. We prepare all the ingredients with care, and you learn about every step and the reason why each ingredient is included. The paella we will cook uses the most authentic and oldest paella recipe in the world, featuring meat and vegetables (we don’t use pork). If you have any allergies or food requests, please let us know in advance so that we can take care of it. Be prepared to experience every step of the cooking process with all your senses! Smell the delicious aromas, listen to the sizzling, see the colours, touch the textures (we make sure you wash your hands first!), and, best of all, taste the flavours! And of course, we can’t have hungry chefs with all that food around, so as we cook, we also snack on some local tapas paired with a beer or soft drink.

Once it’s all prepared, we dive into the best part: lunch! Wehonourthe delicious results of our efforts with some local Mallorcanwine,and then enjoy a homemade dessert with coffee or tea and chat about your time on the island.

Once it’s all done, you have the afternoon to explore more of the countryside or the surrounding area of the chef house… or take a nap after all that paella!

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of four travellers. A solo traveller or group smaller than four may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for four travellers.
