Alicia and Jonathan run a fantastic cooking program in the heart of one of the best wine regions in Spain, Priorat. Alicia got us involved from day one and we were taught cooking from scratch the real way. Nothing was prepared ahead of time and only raw ingredients were used. We were given a complete cookbook of many recipes even...

I can't say enough good things about our experience at Catacurian cooking school. Alicia was amazing to see in action and work with her to learn the wonders of Catalonian cuisine. I went with 3 friends and ended up making 2 new friends from Australia and Brazil who were also in the class. The 4 days were filled with wine...

This was a wonderful experience. Alicia, our instructor was a delight. She is bright and fun and filled with so much knowledge that she was happy to share with us. Learned so much about the cooking of Catalan food and the ingredients that are used. Besides the delicious food we learned to cook each night, the school included fantastic meals...

My husband and I were lucky to be part of the group mentioned in the review titled “Friendship, Food and Wine.” The owners, Alicia and Jonathan, have created a cooking vacation that is enriched by the relationships they have with everyone we came into contact with.

Two years ago my husband and I did a one day experience with Alicia at Catacurian. We enjoyed the experience so much (see my earlier review) that we invited six friends to join us for a six day immersion in the foods and wines of Catalunya. It is hard to describe the richness of the experience without gushing. From the...

Five friends who enjoy cooking, wine and new places spent 6 days with the iconic Alicia as she introduced us to the delights of Catalan cuisine and the beautiful Priorat region. Meeting and touring vineyards with local vintners and tasting some extraordinary wines that were to become part of the evenings pairings was one of the many highlights of our...

Our experience with Alicia and Jonathan at Catacurian was exceptional! From the moment we landed at the airport, Alicia's silver van swipes us off our feet and we on way to her lovely home. Each day started with a nice breakfast and a planned out morning, which included over the course of the 6 days: wineries, a monastary, an architectural...

We did the 6 day course in October and would highly recommend the cooking School. Alicia and her partner Jonathan were very hospitable. Alicia was an extremely talented cook and educator. The food we had was truly spectacular, with an emphasis on fish and seafood at the time we attended. Alicia really did only use the best quality, organic ingredients....

Our day with Jonathan and Alicia visiting a local winery and then experiencing an Alicia-led cooking class was not only the highlight of our 2-week visit to Spain, it was one of the best vacation experiences we've had, ever. In addition to a quality winery visit and a very instructive and enjoyable cooking class, Jonathan and Alicia accommodated our group...
