Wir waren in einem Chalet in Mallorca und hatten das Vergnügen, an einem einzigartigen Erlebnis teilzunehmen. Guillermo zeigte uns, wie man die beste Marisco-Paella zubereitet. Aber das war nicht alles! Er brachte uns auch bei, wie man köstliche Sangria und Crema Catalana zubereitet. Während des Erlebnisses erzählte er uns spannende Geschichten und interessante Fakten über die Paella. Seine Vorbereitung und sein Wissen waren beeindruckend. Dies war definitiv der Höhepunkt unseres Aufenthalts in Mallorca, und sogar auf 2 Sprachen da wir eine gemischte Gruppe waren! Ich würde es definitiv jedem empfehlen.
Perfekter Abend! Guillmo hat uns nicht nur eine hervorragende Paella gezaubert sondern einen ganz besonderen Abend beschert. Vielen Dank dafür!! 🥘🏝️

Wir haben Guillermo für eine Familienfeier engagiert und er hat es absolut bravourös gemacht. Von der Vorbesprechung bis zur Zubereitung vor Ort - es war einfach perfekt. Er hat uns gezeigt und erklärt, wie man eine klassische Paella zubereitet, ebenso wie weitere Variationen, wie z. B. die Fiedua (schwarze Paella mit Nudeln) und die Gäste durften mitschnibbeln und beim Zubereiten mithelfen, was super ankam. Guillermo hat alles mit seiner lockeren und netten Art abgerundet und die Paellas waren die besten, die wir bislang gegessen haben. Alles in allem eine absolute Empfehlung.

Guillermo hat uns in unserem Haus für einen Paella Kurs besucht und wir können es nur wärmstens empfehlen! Guillermo hat für alles gesorgt und uns von der Historie bis zur Durchführung alles über Paellas beigebracht. Wir hatten sehr viel Spaß mit Guillermo, haben viel gelernt und freuen uns ab jetzt in der Lage zu sein, selber Paella zubereiten zu können. Großes Dankeschön an Guillermo!

AMAZING experience! Our time with Guillermo was all around incredible and we cannot speak more highly of him. He shared his enthusiasm and passion for paella with us when he came to cook for our family and friends during our wedding rehearsal dinner. Everyone loved him and his paella, it was outstanding! It was by far the best paella we had while we were traveling in Spain. While cooking, he made the experience extra special as he took time to answer any questions we had about himself, paella, and Mallorca. This was one of our favorite memories of our Europe trip and we hope to come back and enjoy more of Guillermo's famous paellas!!

Guillermo was a pleasure to have come over and do what you can tell he genuinely loves. I’m sure all of his parllas are fantastic but we had the black paella (with squid ink). From 1-10? 12! Would recommend to anyone coming to Mallorca.
