Great way to spend a few hours - doing 'the shop' at the nearby market, some simple prep while enjoying Sangria, great music, best ever fun teacher, and the Paella was divine - just hope I can reproduce?! Fun fun fun

What a great afternoon. Lola is the best host as not just a teacher, but she creates such a fun and relaxed environment. The afternoon went so quick as we were constantly doing different things, walking around the markets and hearing about the tradition of the ingredients, then making sangria, to the paella making, which was delicious. Highly recommend.

A visit to South Melbourne market followed by sangria and paella. After many a sangria, everything seemed better. The class really benefits from its close proximity to South Melbourne market, fresh seafood, saffron, veggies and fruits. It was a merry affair. Lola is very energetic and charismatic.
