I’m a chef & founder of www.PaellaBarcelona.com cooking school and a real foodie.

Having been a Paella chef in our family restaurant for a decade, then running my Paella Experience https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/378164 for several years; today I can firmly claim: I’ve been cooking paella for almost half of my life!

My daughter Mary, who is a chef & passionate food lover, is my primary support in our @paella.BCN cooking experience! We both are in love with food and have our cooking YouTube show.

In our sold-out Barcelona Paella Experience, we have hosted hundreds of home-cooked dinners for more than 5000 guests from all over the world. We received 1462 reviews, 97% of which are 5star!

Having been stuck at home made us redesign our job. Now we make this online Paella Experience for people around the world to have fun & connect!

Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to prepare the ingredients and was not able to cook along with the rest of the team, but Helina quickly assigned us a role as a judge so that we could interactively participate in the event. All in all it was very enjoyable and I did not feel like an outsider at any point in time. I am still very much motivated to try to cook the dish sometime in the weekend when I have time to get the ingredients and prepare properly.

Helina's paella class was amazing for our team to get together, enjoy some downtime and the best part was having an amazing lunch to enjoy via zoom together at the end. Lots of fun, and really clear instruction from Helina, and she included everyone as we put together our own meals.

We booked this experience for my moms birthday and it was wonderful. The recipes were delicious and surprisingly very simple! We will definitely make it again. Helina made sure we each had a role in the process of making sangria, Pan con tomate and the paella. Thank you for making my moms birthday special and for teaching us new tools to use in our future paella recipes :)

This was a wonderful bonding team experience! We have not been able to see each other in person for over a year now and this was fun way to spent time together while learning to cook a delicious paella. Helina was great host, kept us engaged, and made sure to check in with everyone throughout the event. The paella turned out delicious!
