Helina and her team are brilliant. She is very supportive, knowledgeable, and a great leader who knows how to work with a crowd with different cooking skills. We made a great paella and enjoyed it thoroughly.

We did the workshop as a Team building activity and it was great. From the visit to la Boqueria, to the preparation of Sangria and finally the paella. It was great and we enjoyed the activity. The organizers helped a lot to have a wonderful evening that we are going to repeat for sure.

My student group and I had very nice time with Helina at Paella Barcelona Cooking School. I highly recommend you to give a try. She is using very high quality food materials and very responsible during the cooking section. I’m sure we’ll work with her again!
