Cooking with Luise: Paella making and more!
Luise is as vibrant and outgoing and loves to share her passions of Spain and cooking. Luise will ensure that you leave feeling confident to make these dishes with the ability to speak a few words in Spanish and biting at the bit to take that next trip to Spain.
Immersion Experience #1
Learn to make a traditional Paella from Luise, who spends a few months of each year in her beloved village in Valencia. Valencia is home to the Paella de Mariscos and an abundance of Olive groves where some of the best Olive Oil in the world is made. After learning to make Paella de Mariscos, we will sit down together and share the Paella as it is meant to be shared: good conversation, a relaxed atmosphere and the sharing of stories.Suggested wine pairing: Spanish Cava or Sauvignon Blanc
You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine (per two people) to Luise's culinary experience. Please note our insurance policy requires that the wine consumption is no more than 2 glasses per person.
Paella de Mariscos
Seafood paella; Luise has made more paellas than she can remember and the best were those shared with friends old and new. Luise will tell you about the history and culture of paella including “The Rules”. The most important rule? Everyone must be seated and ready to eat once the Paella is ready. As Luise says, “We can wait for the paella but the paella does not wait for us!”

What guests are saying about Luise's culinary experience
“My Mom, daughter and I loved joining “In My Kitchen” with Luise. Luise shared with us her adventures through Spain as a place where she grew up and frequently returns to as a travel writer. Her passion and love for Spanish food and culture is obvious in her cooking. The paella was the best that I have had (and I’ve been to Spain!) In My Kitchen provides a unique cooking experience for people of all ages!”
