Market Tour

We will start the journey with a tour of one of the most amazing markets in Madrid, “Mercado de Maravillas.” The translation would be “Market of Wonders,” and it’s true. In the market, you can find all the wonders needed to prepare the fantastic tapas and the stunning paella we are going to learn how to cook.

Spanish tapas

Jamón Serrano

Tapa of an incredible Jamon Serrano accompanied with bread sticks.

Spanish Cheese

Tapa of Spanish cheese with homemade fig preserves.

Olives tapas

Tapa with an assortment of olives.


This tapas are perfect with either white or red wine, but you can have any other drink of your choice.


Spanish Paella

Spanish paella with three options: seafood (shrimp, mussels, squid), meat (chicken, pork and chorizo) or vegetarian (all vegetables of your choice), made out of an incredible stock depending of your choice, "bomba" rice, tomatoes, green beans, red bell peppers, and my personal touch of mashed garlic and parsley.


Paella is perfect with either white or red wine, but you can have any other drink of your choice.


Sweets duo

There is always room for dessert! This one is amazing, tasting of homemade sponge cake with an includible natural yogurt ice cream made out of organic milk.

Fresh Fruit

If you don't have sweet tooth you can choose your favourite fresh fruit at the market.

Juan is a great host. More than eating paella, it was a real experience from buying the fresh products in the market to learning how to prepare paella and then tasting a very typical Spanish dish. Juan is very nice and shares his passion for cooking.I highly recommand you live this experience, one of my best moment in Madrid!

We had the greatest time with Juan. We discovered a beautiful non touristique market. We cooked a great and delicious paella but also other dishes and of course shared a moment of humanity. I can only warmly recommend this experience!

This was a great experience! Three of us first, went to the market with Juan to buy paella ingredients and we all enjoyed it so much. An exciting market with wonderfully fresh foods everywhere. After, we cooked paella y gambas a ajillo while we talked, learned and ate cheese, olives and Jamón with a refreshing wine. I learned quite a bit cooking paella as well as had an interesting and fun meal after. Juan was such a good instructor as well as an interesting and pleasant man to talk with. I can’t imagine a local experience much better than this.

I can't recommend cooking with Juan enough!! We had a great time! The market is amazing and it was so cool to see all the fresh produce. When we got back home it was fun to be hands on and learn tips and tricks along the way. All in all the paella was amazing, the sangria was great, and the tapas were equally as good. Thanks again, Juan!!
