Learn how to make authentic Spanish seafood paella completely from scratch.

In this interactive cooking class, Chef Gustavo will teach you how to prepare three classic Spanish recipes centered around a gourmet seafood paella. As you cook, you'll also learn all about Spanish food culture.

Begin by making a refreshing gazpacho with fresh tomatoes, then prepare the entrée: Paella de mariscos studded with a variety of fresh seafood and spices. Chef Gustavo will teach you how to perfectly cook the rice so it stays fluffy and how to bring out the flavor of the seafood. End class with a rich crema catalana that's made in advance.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
