I took the Paella Lover class with Guillermo as our instructor to learn how to make paella. It was an amazing experience. He is very easy to contact by email beforehand and will answer any questions you have promptly. When we got to the class I loved that we used all wholesome ingredients for our paella and it tasted delicious. He is a great teacher and answered all my questions about paella and also history and culture of Spain. After learning how to make a paella with Guillermo I even came back home and made a paella myself with all the tips he offered in our class! It turned out great. Thanks again Guillermo!

Guillermo is a very thoughtful teacher and was able to adapt his lesson to my interests and skill level. He is an interesting and engaging person, but no matter how many paella-related tangents we explored, he always returned to the task at hand: to empower me with the skills to make authentic paella by sharing each of the steps clearly. This class was a highlight of my time in Spain and I whole-heartedly recommend Paella Lover!

Gestiono una vivienda vacacional y el servicio de realizar la paella en directo para los clientes lo demandan mucho. Siempre cuento con Guillermo para esta recomendación tan especial y delicada ya que nunca falla. El servicio, limpieza, orden, , simpatía,puntualidad y profesionalidad es imbatible. No me la juego con los clientes y siempre recomiendo "Paella Lover". Enhorabuena Guillermo por tu buen hacer!!
