Paella means pan in both Spanish & Catalan, and it is this pan, wide and shallow, that allows for the caramelized flavors of garlic, onion, tomato, and fresh rosemary sofrito to meld.Valencian rice, (arroz) is then added and slowly simmered in handmade citrus saffron stock. The arroz is then garnished with appropriate ingredients for the type of arroz being made. A wide array of seafood, meat, game and poultry as well as charcuterie is available, complimented by fresh seasonal vegetables, which are then steamed by the simmering rice and stock, creating a medley of flavor and texture greater than the sum of its parts.
WHERE AND HOW IS ARROZ COOKED?
Paella was traditionally cooked over open fire, but due to the reality of urban settings, the use of propane fueled paella burners is utilized for most events, allowing the paella to be cooked on/in your veranda, carport, front yard, or any other feasible indoor/outdoor location. We will gladly build a grapewood fire in your front yard or office parking lot though!
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PAELLA FEED?
Private/Corporate Paella catering packages start at a minimum of twenty five guests.
Arroz is available in vegetarian and vegan options, and can be tailored to food allergy specific situations.
