Our cooking activities are very diverse and some of them are partially outdoor, next to the sea. They can be adapted to a corporate event or for any kind of group. Cook with your friends or colleagues, make your own appetizers, try your self-made paella, delight a mouth-watering desert and… make a toast with a well deserved glass of cava.
