Welcome to Social Chef´s website, Yves Nicolier Sandrock. After a 9 month road trip in our van with my family, from June 2019 to May 2021, we are back to our home country, but this time to Costa Brava, Capmany instead of Barcelona city. Yes we made it! Back to the roots, back to basics!

In the Alt Empordà region of Catalonia, I am offering unique cooking experiences connected to the source of food and nutrition by visiting farmers, fishers, ranchers, winemakers, craft beer brewers, cheese producers, and so on.

Born in Switzerland, conceived in Istanbul and raised in Barcelona most of his life, Yves has an international background that will make you feel welcomed and engaged!

Yves and Family are currently living in Capmany in a fortified house build in XIV century and the cooking experiences are hosted in the outdoor cooking space in the backyard. You can also book a private chef service and bring Chef Yves into your own kitchen.

Discover the best of traditional Spanish and Catalan cuisine while Yves will reveal the secrets to local culture.

Client´s reviews:
“Yves is knowledgeable, friendly and fun. He graciously opened his beautiful home, not to mention well appointed kitchen to us after morning of picking our lunch at a local farm. He understood our dietary needs (vegan) and built the most amazing lunch based on what was ready in the fields!”


“Preparing a meal with Yves and the small group was a wonderful experience. The food was amazing, the company fantastic, and the hospitality warm and inviting. This experience allows you to feel like you are a true Barcelonian for a day.”
