For over 25 years, I have been cooking and working on creating the very best paella experience to cook for friends and family. Though out these years, I have experimented with ingredients that would create the most authentic paella available to the Nashville area and ….NOW I can say that My Paella Travels will bring to you the most authentic paella experience available from Texas to Tennessee and every state in between.
My paellas are customized for you while maintaining authenticity and quality. I use only the freshest ingredients available.
Oh! Did I mention that my paellas are Nashville-inspired?
I use fresh local sausages made for my paellas as well as fresh southern shrimp, clams, mussels and local Tennessee pork?
Not a seafood fan?
That’s okay, too! My Paella Travels will customize a paella to your palate.
Up to 60 guests…My Customized Paella Experiences will Travel to You!
My Paella Travels creates magical evenings for celebrations which will bring the signature dish of Spain to you for a casual backyard gathering that you and your guests will rave about!
My Paella Travelsbrings the heart and soul of Spain to any celebration. Paella, the most popular and well known dish of Spain, is a vibrant rice dish often cooked outdoors.
An authentic Paella Party is a great reason to celebrate with family and friends which will be centered around a large paella brimming with vibrantly tinted Bomba rice and locally sourced vegetables with succulent meats, seafoods and mouthwatering aromas of spices. My paellas are made with authentic Spanish ingredients and prepared with traditional Spanish techniques just the way they make them in Spain.
Set up is easy. I bring it all. You and your guests will enjoy the experience of watching the preparation and cooking of the paella before your eyes.
With every event, the best part of the experience is watching everyone enjoy themselves which is evident with smiles and laughter. I provide the main course, wine selections and tapas (if requested). My paellas will feed a large crowd and allows the guests to enjoy their guests while I do the cooking!
Part of what I do to help create the optimum experience is help with wine selections to pair with the paella and tapas event. For years, I have been studying wine and obtaining several certifications with the WSET and the Court of Master Sommeliers which focus on wine knowledge and pairings. Some of my favorite wines to pair are white, red and sparkling Spanish and Portuguese wines but it just begins there. Spanish foods pair very well with many wines and I would love to show how!
It takes about 45 minutes to create the paella from scratch. Guests have a chance to savor tapas and enjoy the wine selections while gathering around the paella pan. Your friends will have fun learning about the history of paella, what makes an authentic paella implementing authentic techniques and quality ingredients.
