My Paella Travels: It’s Not Just Paella, It’s a Paella Experience! Paella Chef & Caterer | Nashville, Tennessee

The BEST PAELLA EXPERIENCE in Nashville!

Where will My Paella Travel next?

My Paellas are a unique fusion of local ingredients such as locally made sausages, locally grown produce, southern seafood and authentic Spanish flavors, techniques and ingredients. Each paella is a work of art for the eyes, palate and soul.

Paella Love

We all have that common thread of yearning for something to feed our hearts and souls. Well, my paellas do just that. My paellas bring friends, family and the community together for a feast of Paella Love.

My Paella has traveled from Tennessee to Texas, Louisiana and to Georgia feeding the souls of friends, family and the community bringing people together through a celebratory feast of life and love through a plate of paella and a glass (or two) of wine.

Will My Paella Travel to you? Have Paella Pan:Will Travel!

WOW! I have been very busy for many months now riding the “paella wave.”  So many fun adventures have come my way and I can’t wait to see what else ahead.

 

Paella surprise birthday parties are always a fun way to celebrate!

 

Having it all with Lisa on Wine Antics!                                                            

In March, I was featured on the live talk show  (CLICK TO WATCH) Wine Antics and was thrilled to talk to Jenn and Stubb (Cork Envy) about “having it all!”

My Paella Travels makes people happy! You can see it in their smiles.

My journey; my mission is to keep spreading some of that awesome Paella Love from east to west, north to south and everywhere in between.

My Paella Travelled to Macon, Georgia at Travis Jean’s Cooking School and Event Center and fed over 50 hungry paella lovers 4 paellas: Paella Mixta with both seafood, chicken and sausage, Vegetarian Paella, Texas-Louisiana Style Paella with Andouille Sausage and Smoked Brisket and a Black Paella filled to the brim with seafood and colorful vegetables. Go big or go home! Only 32 and 36 inch paella pans allowed here!

Dueling with Chef Kevin and my 36 inch bad boy paella pan!

Over 50 guests wined and dined with My Paella Travels.

Thanks to Chef Kevin, I got to meet so many amazing people in Macon, Georgia who I now call my friends.

One of the stars of the event is my famous Paella Mixta which is loaded with seafood, sausage, shrimp, chicken and house made chicken saffron broth.

Sharing the paella experience with Scott and Bill was the best! LOVE YOU BOTH!

Even vegetarians love my paellas!

Seafood Paella made with Black Cuttlefish ink!

I channelled my Louisiana and Texas “culinary roots” with a Texas-style Smoked Brisket and Andouille Sausage Paella in Macon, Georgia.

In 2015, I won a local Paella Cook Off with my Gourmet Fusion Paella at Casa Azafran! It was a crowd-pleaser!  My winning paella was a Spanish Paella with Nashville Hot Chicken!

I love sharing my paella skills with Paella Cooking Classes at Savory Spice Shop in Franklin.

I enjoy hosting a Spanish wine and Paella Pairing at a local wine shop. My paella’s are works of art!

I host a paella cooking event every year for the University School Evening Class Events. This was a seafood paella made with Spanish fideua noodles instead of rice complete with tapas for a sold out class on Valentine’s night! This seafood paella originated from the fishing villages of Spain and there is nothing like rich flavored noodles with a crispy bottom crust.

My Paella Travels: Austin, Texas. Bringing some of that Paella Love to my awesome Texas friends. Praise Paella!

I love to have a backyard paella dinner on a warm Sunday spring evening.

Surprise Birthday Party in East Nashville!

This will be the 3rd year that I’ll be cooking My Paella Love at the  2017 Nashville Wine and Food Festival! Stop by my table and experience the love!

In March 2017, I was asked to create and cater tapas for the USN (University School of Nashville) Spanish Wine and Tapas Pairing Fund Raising Event. This last yet biggest event of the series of yearly evening classes. There were around 80 guests, I worked by *** off and loved every single second. I cook big, live big and love big. Yep, that’s me. My Paella Travels Paella and Tapas Catering.

My famous Spanish Romesco Sauce (which everyone loves!) topped the charcoal grilled gulf shrimp and local Spanish Chorizo. This was a hit.

Here’s my take on traditional Spanish Meatballs, with a hint of Moroccan Spices, yet another hit!

Spanish cheese, meats, crispy seasoned bread and lots more.

Everyone loved my roasted heirloom tomatoes with eggplant and zucchini with Spanish spices.

 

Just sharing some of that Paella Love……
