Once you know how, cooking paella isn't nearly as intimidating as you might think. So this social, fun and friendly course might be just the thing. Start with a visit to the market, then learn to make a typical rice dish in a restaurant kitchen. Then sit down to eat it, with plenty of wine to wash it down.

Prices vary according to whether a market visit is included and the ingredients of the paella – vegetarian or seafood possibilities are available.
