Let’s appreciate paella for a second…
When you think of Spain, the dish that will most likely pop up in your head immediately is paella, right? Paella is a seafood dish that originates from Valencia, eastern Spain, but is now a worldwide-classic. And what’s not to love about it? A delicious rice dish filled with spicy, juicy chorizo, steamy vegetables and a lot of good flavors. Not to forget about the mussels and prawns, that makes this dish so special.
And besides that, paella brings people together! It is one of the most sociable dishes out there. Not only do families and friends sit around the table together and share an enormous pan of paella, it is also a popular dish to make on the weekends during the holiday, at the beach, or during a picnic. It is the ultimate comfort food, perfect to eat any time of the year, whenever you want.
This delightful seafood dish can be very mouthwatering if prepared in the right way, but if it is not made with care, it can be awful. Learning how to create perfect paella can be a good skill to impress your friends with during dinner.
But there are so many variations of paella that it can be overwhelming when you are creating the dish for the first time, so where do you start? And how do you know if you are doing the right thing?
The Paella Club
Lucky for you, The Paella Club was created. Alex Betolaza is the founder of The Paella Club. He was born in the Basque Country, which is a region known for its high culinary standards that have been reflected in the world famous ”tapas”. The idea for The Paella Club all started when Alex traveled to places like Los Angeles, London and Miami to work in various restaurants. People always asked him how to make a great paella when he told them he was from Spain. And that sparked the idea…
Alex started to look for a cool place that is as lively as Los Angeles but then reflected in Spain. His passion is cooking and he wanted to give people the full experience of this art form. The Paella Club is neither a cooking class school nor a restaurant. It is an unforgettable fully immersive cooking experience of discovering new and fresh ingredients, presenting them in beautiful dishes, and sharing the flavourful paellas with others.
