Cooking Class - Saffron Vegetable Paella

Learn how to make a hearty and filling vegetable version of the signature Spanish dish.

Paella without meat is not only possible, but totally satisfying. Learn from Chef Anja, who went to cooking school in France and apprenticed at Michelin-rated restaurants, about the secrets to turning this traditional dish into one that’s vegetarian friendly.

In this cooking class, you’ll start off by making a dark green winter salad with pomegranate seeds and goat cheese. Then, you’ll spend the evening learning how to make a vegetable-based version of paella. Finally, you’ll end the experience on a sweet note with a dark chocolate pear crumble, and get to feast on all the delicious dishes you’ve created.

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

Great food! Our team really liked Anja's energy. It took about 4 hours for the team to cook their meal, so next time we will start this class earlier :) Also, there was some pretty scary confusion on the wine I ordered. Next time I will call to confirm receipt since this was almost an deal breaker for our team.

Anja was great! We had her over for my husband's birthday (a surprise) and we cooked a delicious Paella dish together. She was friendly, fun, answered our questions and made the whole night awesome!

Chef Anja flawlessly executed a pasta making team building class for 27 people (from Japan, Europe, China, Canada and the US!) and it truly was the perfect alternative to a regular sit down team dinner. The event ran seamlessly, the arrangements ahead of time couldn't have been easier (even with our ever changing headcount) and she was able to accommodate all food allergies. Highly, highly recommend Chef Anja!
