In this two hour class, learn to make the perfect paella by award winning Cookbook Author and Olive Oil Sommelier Emily. Emily is an eight time cookbook author including: Spain Recipes for Olive Oil and Vinegar Lovers.
What you will learn:
- The history and origin of Paella
- Two methods of cooking Paella: 1) Open fire 2) Stove top and Oven
- How to properly clean and prep squid
- How to make Emily's delicious Sangria
- You will learn to make the simplest and most delicious tapa: Pan Con Tomate (Tomato Bread)
- Most importantly how to make the socarrat, the crispy rice on the bottom of the pan
- All this sprinkled with olive oil tasting, buying and storing tips.
The number of paella recipes out there, authentic or otherwise, can be mind-boggling. In this class Emily is going to teach you how to make Paella de Marisco or Seafood Paella. You may be surprised to know that the original paella was made with rabbit and snails that fed off of rosemary growing in the fields.
