Traditional Paella

Thursday, September 25th 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Tradition has it that true paella in Valencia is cooked only by men, over an open fire, fueled by orange and pine branches and pine cones. We’ll have to adjust that a bit. Join Camila Loew for a Paella Party featuring an Autumn influenced paella prepared by a medley of guests (that’s you) over a not-so-open fire.

$75 / person
