“Life without tapas is like a heart without love.” - BKS Iyengar
With all bars and restaurants closed during COVID-19 lockdown, maybe you’ve missed one thing most: Tapas. And maybe you started to wonder if and how you could make some of these delicious little dishes at home like you get at restaurants. And we are not talking about a bit of saffron rice in a bowl kind of tapas, but seriously cool (and yummy!) tapas like you’d find at top restaurants.
Probably, you will eventually be able to book one of the courses offered at one of Mallorca’s cooking schools but it might take some time for them to re-open. Before they do, they will have to figure out how to meet the new social distancing standards and strict sanitation requirements imposed by the efforts to keep the coronavirus at bay.
Online Cooking Classes #
Meanwhile, here are two recommendations where you can learn online how to make great tapas that will impress your friends and keep your bank account in the black.

Mallorca’s Cooking Schools #
Mallorca has a selection of cooking schools that specifically cater to making tapas and we hope for all of us that the “new normal” will eventually develop into a situation where we can all enjoy doing fun things together again. These two cooking schools promise to re-open as soon as they can, of course observing the new rules.
Please, keep in mind that the information about classes and prices given are from pre-corona times, so better check again on their websites before thinking about booking.
The Galley Club - Yacht Cookery School
Located in trendy Santa Catalina, The Galley Club offers a gourmet tapas-making course limited to eight people, so you know you’ll be getting a lot of hands-on training as well as personal attention, ensuring you will be super ready to recreate all those tasty treats for the future. Classes run three hours in the evenings and cost €50 per person.
Address: Carrer de Cotoner 21Bajo, 07013 Palma
Lonja 18- Open Kitchen Mallorca
This three-hour course not only teaches you to make your own tapas, but also includes, for €15 additional, a trip to the market to select the makings for your future snacks. Some of the dishes you will prepare are pretty high-brow, such as smoky grilled vegetable pastry with anchovies, quail eggs with chorizo, brandade stuffed peppers and prawns in inky tempura batter. Classes (without market visit) are €65 per person.
Address: Lonja 18 Carrer de la Llotja 18, 07012 Palma
Editor's Note: Everyone's discretionary income is different. We all live on a budget. We included these schools to offer great ideas for special celebrations as well as a special personal treat.
