Cooking Class: Spanish Paella and Seafood

Chef Gustavo is ready to teach cooking classes centered around classic Spanish recipes. While learning about Spanish food and culture, you'll create a cool and refreshing tomato gazpacho. The entrée is a paella de Mariscos served with a variety of seafood, rice and aromatic spices. You'll learn how to perfectly cook the rice so it stays fluffy. A rich crema catalana, made in advance, is a sweet finish to this savory seafood menu.

Chef Gustavo is an amazing chef and teacher. Most notable is his emphasis on how the cooking experience is significant in both its flavors and connections made in the kitchen. He invites all into his kitchen as family and we could not have been more pleased with the evening.
