About Savour Academy
HERE’S TO THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
Every road taken has shaped this path…to cooking up food and wine events with you in Barcelona!
Savour Academy is my passion project in food and wine events in Barcelona.
Since 2017, Savour Academy has been evolving as a cooking school, wine academy and culinary hub for Barcelona residents and visitors to the city.
Here in my spacious gastronomy school, you can learn about local and international cuisine with wines of course!
Although my uni background is in PR and Events, my natural progression in gastronomy along with years of wine training has led to sommelier accreditations from WSET (Level 2 Award in Wines) and Gremi de Restauració (Sommelier Diploma).
At Escuela Hofmann I have undertaken their Michelin-star specialisation diploma in paella, to take my cooking classes at Savour Academy to the next level.
For the sustainability cause, I also received my Environmental Management qualification from Foment Barcelona.
With Savour Academy, I’m combining my love of creative culinary events and hosting in my favourite place in the world. I like to share original, sustainable and fun experiences; preferably with food and wine, based in Barcelona.
So let’s share some foodie stories and a glass of wine. Find me on Instagram or Facebook – I look forward to meeting you!

You will love it, so do it!One of the highlights of our 3 month trip through Spain was to learn the tricks n tips of cooking traditional paella with Zara. A really personalized and fantastic experience.

Cooking with Zara is an absolute joyShe has tremendous knowledge about making paella and she led us through all of the steps. We started by shopping at the Mercat d’Hostafrancs. Then we went to her venue, broke open the cava, and then prepared the broth, soffrito, shellfish, and put it all together. We had ordered paella at one of Barcelona’s best restaurants just a few days ago, and the one that we made with Zara was so much better. We are confident that after experiencing this cooking class, we now have the knowledge and skills to follow Zara’s recipe at home to make a really good paella. If you want to learn to make paella, learn from Zara - we’re glad we did.

About Savour Academy
Savour Academy is a relaxed venue for you to learn about wine and much more. The space reflects the quirky vagabond soul of Barcelona, created by my own hands using upcycled and vintage finds.
Here from my second home I host wine tastings, cava sabrage, cooking classes and supperclub pairing events.
The venue is located just off the beaten track in Hostafrancs (Sants). It’s a 5-minute walk from Plaça Espanya with its famous Magic Fountain and the MNAC at the foot of Montjuïc.
Simply select the class you are interested in and check available dates in the calendar. Please note that the time slots are flexible, if you need to start a little earlier or later we can usually accommodate!
Your booking is unique as you reserve the venue and the host for the date, so in general refunds are not guaranteed as they mean losing another booking for that same date. However, each instance notified within a reasonable timeline is rescheduled/credited where possible.
Yes! If you want to combine two or more of the different offerings at Savour Academy, get in touch with your request and we can plan it together.
