Spanish Dinner Party - Perfect Paella
It’s back! That rustic centuries-old Spanish dish, that classic one-dish meal, that impressive spectacle known as Paella has reemerged as the ultimate party food.
Whether you’re planning a casual summer patio party or a big family celebration any time of the year, Paella is the perfect choice, because it’s a lavish meal in a single pan that can serve 10, 50 or 100.
Tonight, we’ll start off with a Roasted Vegetable Salad. Then, we’ll dive in and learn how to make the traditional Chiringuito Seafood Paella from someone who really knows how to use the aromatic mixtures of rice, meats, and spices which add the “flare” to Spanish dishes like Paella.
Professional culinary instructor Chef Richard McPeake makes a mean Paella, and he’s going to take you step-by-step through the process of creating this fabulous dish, starting with Sofrito, a sautéed mixture of onions, peppers, garlic and tomato that add so much flavor to this incredible dish.
We’ll learn how to make Paella’s unmistakable saffron-scented rice and how to develop layers of flavor to take this dish into the realm of “oh-my-gosh” goodness.
And, speaking of goodness, Chef will share a great variation of the recipe as he shows you how to make his delicious (and more economical) version of the classic paella – and, this one is made on the grill! Whoa! We love choices!
We also love dessert, so how ‘bout we have some of that, too! Chef will teach us how to make Spanish Flan with Caramel Sauce, a classic light dessert that is the perfect finale for our Paella Party!
Along the way, you’ll get some hands-on cooking time with Chef, as well. If I were you, I wouldn’t miss this one!
