An illuminating and fun experience!

Great tour of market where we picked up fresh ingredients for the paella. Extensive descriptions of what and why each were chosen. Demonstration kitchen nearby that is capable of accommodating large groups. Step by step instructions with hands on preparation. All ingredients set out in proper proportions. Immaculate facilities. Banquet table set up to consume the paella. Throughout generous servings of local drink mixes with wine paired with the meal. An outstanding and fun experience well worth the fee.

We had an excellent time with Mary at the market and with Mary and Jordi at the kitchen! They made making paella entertaining and interesting. And the communal cooking was so much fun! A great value for the cost and something I would recommend to anyone coming to Valencia!

This was such a great experience! Mari and Oscar were so nice and helpful. We learned a lot about the traditions of Paella Valenciana and even some personal ones. When we arrived to the kitchen after picking up the ingredients from the market we had tapas waiting for us and we made sangria. The drinks and tapas kept going while we cooked our paellas. It was such an enjoyable experience beginning to end.

I highly recommend this excursion. We had a wonderful tour of a local market and learned about the proper ingredients that are used in Spanish cooking. Once back in the kitchen, our whole group was able to contribute to the cooking experience (despite the fact that we were a large group). The guide and instructor were so kind and informative and really made us feel like we were cooking with family. Next time I am in Valencia with other friends/family, I will definitely go back to "My First Paella" so I can share the experience with others!

What is a Paella?

, Nov 2019
Well actually there are at least two types of Paella according to the chefs at My First Paella: seafood and meat. Paella of course originated as largely a peasant dish of rice and a protein with whatever embellishments the cook prided as their special touch. Nonetheless if you have never made Paella, or if you want a very Venetian touch this is the class for you. We start with a tour of the local street market with only the freshest meats, vegetables and fish. Then it’s to the classroom with Mary our hostess and our two chefs. Everyone has a load of fun while receiving some terribly worthwhile tips on cooking the dish. There is potato omelettes, cheese and classic ham with plenty of sangria. You won’t regret the visit.

We took part in the Paella Making experience on Oct 29th 2019. We were met by Maria and taken to the Mercat Central to buy the ingredients from the locals. The whole time we were given information and stories about food and the local area. Once all the ingredients had been bought we headed over to the MyFirstPaella school to start cooking. We were greeted by Ramon and a whole load of tapas and sangria. Then the cooking started! Ramon explained every step brilliantly with humour and patience. As a group we cooked up a traditional Valencian Paella and a Sesfood Paella. Everyone in the group got the chance to do some chopping or stirring etc.. Once the Paellas had been made we all sat down to enjoy our efforts! With more red wine of course. The whole experience was just brilliant, we had such a good time. A great day out as part of our trip for my wifes 30th birthday. Thanks MyFirstPaella!!

We highly recommend this fun and tasty (yummy) workshop! My husband and I had such a great time. Everything - from going to the market and walking to the venue, to the appetizers, to preparing and eating the paella, to the drinks and great conversations - was fenomenal! Far exceeded our expectations.
