The International Flair Of A Paella Party

August 22, 2017

Paella is like a party in a pot. The different ingredients, smell, flavors, aromas, and spices make the preparation a spectacular sight to watch and delicious to eat. This sophisticated one pot meal is a simple dish consisting of yellow rice, assorted sea food, and vegetables. There is no such rule as ‘you cannot put this in.’ but the basic principles of cooking techniques need to be applied.

Because paella is a fairly rich dish it needs no fancy accouterment, thus we include some very simple appetizers and beverages.

Follow these simple tips to distinguish a good paella from a bad one:

  1. Saffron will never give the rice a bright yellow color, so if that’s the color, it may be cooked with food coloring
  2. Authentic paella will never be cooked with frozen fish and shellfish. If the dish smells fishy it’s probably not a good one
  3. Paella should have a brown crusty edge, appear almost dry and a thin crust should also be found at the bottom of the pan.
  4. If the paella is served on a stainless steel or enamel pan, it is not very authentic either.

We at Vamospaella, cater to this Spanish cuisine to any paella party, be it business or a personal event. With our experience of offering the best of services, you can be confident that your paella party will be a success.

Vamospaella brings an international flair to your event which is sure to delight your guest as Paella is one of those festive looking dishes that is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.

Let’s talk about Paella party!

June 29, 2017

World renowned with Mediterranean characters, still radically different. We are talking about the pride of Spanish and Italian cuisine – Paella and Risotto.

Risotto had always been a go to sophisticated rice dish for homes and restaurants alike. This big, mushy bowl of comfort when well made, is creamy with each grain of rice maintaining a gentle bite. It favours one key flavouring ingredient which gradually became a little too monotonous. This is when Paella came into focus.

Paella Party is a party in itself. It is like a social circle overstuffed with compelling characters, having fun with a whiff of chaos. It is a sunny fluffy yellow rice dish topped with red pepper, dotted with green peas and loaded with everything from shrimp to chorizo lo lobsters. You can throw in seafood, sausage, meat, beans, peppers without going overboard.

There are some very subtle difference between risotto and paella.

  1. While risotto is from Italian origin, Paella is of Spanish origin.
  2. When cooked paella rice is soft, moist and each grain is separate; totally different from risotto rice which is creamy and sticks together.
  3. Cooking risotto requires your attention all the time. Paella is not stirred while is simmers in the broth.
  4. If the risotto sticks to the bottom of the pan, it might as well be discarded. Paella, on the other hand, has a bottom coat called socarrat that is allowed to stick to the bottom of the pan and is devoured by people.

Paella is the most recognised and valued international Spanish dish. It receives its name from the ‘flat pan’ in which it is cooked. This paella pan is a large, flat, shallow pan that cooks all the ingredients in one layer. Another theory regarding its name origin includes deriving it from ‘para ella’ meaning ‘For Her’ as traditionally men cooked this dish.

Thinking of throwing a paella party? Think of Vamos Paella. The oomph delivered by them into this great European rice dish reminds us exactly how good paella can be. A paella catering by them includes waiting and bar staff, linen, cutleries or any other hire that ensures your event goes smoothly. It’s a one stop solution for your paella party
