Everything your team needs to know about preparing a savory Spanish classic.

Navigate this classic dish from Spain with the expert guidance of Chef Joni. In addition to her background as a chef, she is a nutrition educator who has years of experience as a cooking instructor and personal chef. She believes in preparing food not only for the sake of creating a great meal, but to promote awareness of the importance of nutrition in overall health.

This class will teach you and your colleagues the key elements required for a successful paella. Chef Joni will then guide everyone through each of the stages of making paella, and teaching the proper terms and techniques for each phase of the process. Additionally, discover the secrets of the "Four S's": smoked paprika, saffron, sofrito, and socarrat. Attendees have the choice of either creating a surf 'n turf paella, or paella with vegetables.

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

Chef Joni's paella class was fabulous! The kitchen was beautiful. Chef Joni was so personable and knowledgeable. We learned about each ingredient, and how different ingredients can be substituted. It was very hands on. The paella tasted delicious, the sangria was sooo good, and the desert, Valencia Orange Cake melted in our mouths. I definitely recommend this class.

Joni , Pearl, and LeeAnn were really professional and made the evening so much fun! We are a rowdy bunch, but Joni had plenty for everyone to do, including a ”contest”.

Short review - "Chef Joni is amazing!". Long review - We went as a small group (size=8) and we cooked a big pot of Paella. Chef Joni was actively making sure everyone was involved and learned something new! She paced the evening with right amount of explanations pertaining to the recipe and general cooking concepts. She also graciously accommodated the request for a vegetarian paella by some of us. We had great fun and ate a great meal (including appetizers and a cake at the end!). Thank you Chef Joni for the fun evening :)
