fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Fun, tasty and a real treat!
I have never heard of Paella before this experience. I'd definitely recommend, it tasted amazing and the people were great!
Paella cooking may sound like a basic experience, but this was one of the most wholesome, pleasurable experiences of our whole trip. Getting to experience the whole 'Spanish casual sunday' Paella making experience with wine, food and friends in a leafy location with great hosts was really special.
An opportunity to learn about the history of Valencia, Paella, and to be able to spend a few hours with wonderful people
Just a fun picnic outside with a cool family.
