This was an awesome experience! Juan was a great host and teacher. I loved that the experience was outside of the center of Madrid, so you really got the feel for a non-turisty Spanish neighborhood and market. The paella was amazing, and I'm already trying to replicate it at home.

I was referred to EatWith by another host as a way to learn to cook, while visiting Madrid. As my trip was so short, I felt very crunched for time with my other activities, but cooking with Juan was worth every second. From going to the market, to prepping and cooking, to enjoying the delicious tapas and wine - it's an experience everyone who loves cooking should have. When next in Madrid, I'll definitely be cooking with Juan again. Maybe even try cooking a meat paella instead. Thank you so much, Juan!

A superb experience that far exceeded my expectations. I have eaten paella many times and in many places, but in this occasion the awesome paella becomes a memorable experience. The day begins at the market, although I only could join after this for cooking. As soon as I arrived, while Juan was showing how to make a good sangria, I was able to meet the Oregon family with whom I was going to share table. Juan started soon to cook the paella: among many top quality ingredients I want to highlight the marvelous crawfish and red shrimps. While cooking, we tasted cheese and ham accompanied by sangría, beers and a homemade vermouth which was also excellent. The paella was so delicious that we all had twice. We finished with homemade desserts: a sponge cake and an ice cream perfectly blended. My experience has been amazing. I enjoyed an authentic paella in company of a great host, Juan, able to make you feel at home from the first moment. Don’t miss it!! Una experiencia inmejorable que superó todas mis expectativas. He comido muchas veces y en muchos sitios paella, pero en esta ocasión la estupenda paella se convierte en una experiencia memorable. El día comienza en el mercado, aunque yo no pude incorporarme hasta el momento de la cocina. Nada más llegar, mientras Juan estaba enseñando cómo hacer una buena sangría, pude conocer a la familia de Oregón con la que iba a compartir mesa. Enseguida Juan se puso a hacer la paella: entre un montón de ingredientes de primerísima calidad, quiero destacar unas estupendas cigalas y gambas rojas. Mientras se iba haciendo, tomamos queso y jamón, acompañados por la sangría, cervezas y un vermut casero también muy rico. La paella de diez. Repetimos todos. Finalizamos con los postres caseros: un bizcocho y un helado que se compenetraban perfectamente. Mi experiencia ha sido muy gratificante. Disfruté de una gran paella, en compañía de un gran anfitrión, Juan, capaz de conseguir que te sientas como en casa desde el primer momento. No os lo perdáis!!

Cooking with Juan was a great experience, it was worth going. Juan seemed to be conscious about the quality of the products used. He was very passionate, entertainment and attentive while going through all the cooking steps, he taught us amazing tricks and he allow us to be as much involved in the process as we wish. While the paella was cooking we enjoyed typical Spanish starters such as ham, cheese, pickles and anchovies with beer and wine. Shellfish in the paella was juicy, the rice grain was distinct and the flavour was awesome with all the ingredients along with an exceptional and tasteful Spanish red wine. Difficult to do better!!. The dessert was excellent with a yogurt ice cream and two typical Spanish cakes, they were delicious. The atmosphere was great, really clean and nice space lounge where my wife and myself enjoyed the amazing paella with a couple of friends and another person called Alfonso. We had a good laugh so the time went fast. Overall, food and drinks were outstanding, share the experience is highly recommended.

Amazing¡ great Spanish food. Delicious and very good quality starters. The host was very welcoming, cheerful and let us participated in the cooking. He explained step by step the process of cooking a paella, what's great¡ the shelfish was fresh and delicious. The wines and local beer were also amazing, excellent quality. Nothing to say about the dessert apart of awesome. It was very well balanced and the best thing is that it's all organic. The company was great too. I went with my husband and a couple of friends. we meet Alfonso there and we shared and incredible day enjoying the food, the background music and laughs. Great Sunday! And great host I really recommend it

Paella was awesome. Cooking with Juan while eating some Spanish tapas, as jamón, cheese, olives, Spanish anchovies and cerveza was quite an experience. Apartment is very comfy and easy to find, close to metro and bus station. Juan has a nice terrace that make me think to come back in summer time to have the paella outdoors. Overall it was a great experience, I strongly recommend it to anybody
