The preparation will produce as much pleasure as the eating itself: exciting flavors, textures, and colors combine to make you enjoy every minute, from preparation to the last bite of dessert!
Featured chefs include internationally acclaimed Ferran Adriá. Considered by many as the most revolutionary chef in the world, his cooking is based on the combination of texture, temperature, and taste with a touch of humor.

Carmen Ruscalleda, chef of the 2 Michelin-starred “Sant Pau” and its sister restaurant in Tokyo, is one of them. Based on her creative interpretation of the Catalan culinary tradition - that has always combined sweet and savory, fish and meat, hot and cold, vegetables and fruits, Carmen has developed recipes that are both complex and balanced. Some of them can be learned in our cooking lesson.
