When people visit Barcelona, they yearn for Mediterranean cuisine. And nothing shouts Spanish Mediterranean louder than Paella. Elevated to iconic status after years of bringing families and friends together around the table, foreigners rarely get to taste the real deal when they are lured into tourist traps where the yellow overcooked rice they serve with all manner of perversions can be called anything but paella.
Our Local chef became popular among locals when he helmed the kitchen at the ideally located Kaiku restaurant in the fishermen’s neighbourhood of La Barceloneta, facing the sea.
He went on to run the kitchen at Minyam where he debuted his invention for giving his rices an irresistible smokey aroma, The Vulcano. An sort of custom-made aluminium “hat” which covers the paella for a few minutes while torched rosemary twigs.

Hug and his team were great! Very warm welcome! Everyone is very friendly and they started us out with a fabulous cava! Hug is very passionate and knowledgeable about his work. The food was delicious! We had a lot of fun helping tonorepare everything! He was an incredible smoker for purchase and if I had more room on my carry on, I would have wanted to take one home. It infused our tomatopaste bread with a smoky hint of rosemary which was phenomenal! I'm still craving it. We made one vegetable and one seafood paella, both were delectable! I'm not a huge seafood fan and I loved both! It was too chilly and windy for us to sit outside, but we were still able to enjoy the views. The place where you cook is a small apartment, itsike waking into a friends house. It's not extravagant, but comfortable. Finding the door was a bit tricky, the area is not in a touristy part of town, but my friend and I felt safe enough to walk home and walk off all the delicious food we ate. I highly recommend the experience! Thank you Hug and team for an unforgettable experience and dinner!

What a great experience! My sister and I had so much fun. We made two different paellas, both SO tasty, and we really learned a lot. There was an amazing Creme Catalan as dessert that was unforgettable. Chef Hug was a great teacher and was really fun to cook with. He is a true expert -- and I hope they will offer other types of cooking classes on local cuisine (besides paella) in the future.

Martinho and his team including our great chef Hug Pla made it a totally unique and amazing experience. It made us understand the real essence of paella and it's intricacies. He was generous enough to prepare a vegetable paella too for one of our friend who turned out allergic to prawns. We take back great memories and ideas. Muchos gracias mister

This is cooking class is a must for anyone visiting Barcelona! Martinho was so wonderful and gave us lots of tips and history. It was the best paella that we had the entire trip. I loved that he shared his paella secrets with us, and really made us feel like we were part of the family. I would come back here in a heartbeat!

Martinho’s place was beautiful. I very spacious urban loft. Very clean with a modern feel, but yet is still cozy. He was very inviting and answered every question we had beforehand. Chef Hugo made one of the most delicious pallet my husband and I have ever had. He went step by step and explained how to make the salad and paella we ate. We helped by chopping a few things (If we pleased of course). Chef Hugo is innovative and really puts his own spin on all his food, and most importantly, love. If you ever get a chance to book with this experience, I strongly recommend to do so.
