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 get-together or a family celebration, Paella is the perfect choice because it’s a lavish meal in a single pan that goes a long way.

Tonight, you’ll sip on a glass of wine as we start off with a Roasted Vegetable Salad. Then, Chef will dive into our cooking lesson as you 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 a class Spanish Flan with Caramel Sauce, a classic light dessert that is the perfect finale for our Paella feast!

If I were you, I wouldn’t miss this one!
