Cooking Class - Seafood and Chorizo Paella

Discover the secrets to creating the perfect paella mixta!

Paella mixta incorporates a variety of ingredients from both land and sea, and has become increasingly popular in Spanish restaurants across the United States. Now you can learn to prepare this delectable dish with the expert guidance of Chef Piño, who has had a love for creating paella since childhood.

Begin by preparing a hearty chicken and seafood stock, followed by flavorful onions, garlic, healthy green beans, green bell peppers and sweet red bell peppers. Continue with the addition of tender chicken and juicy chorizo de bilbao (pork), crispy and tender calamari, flavorful mussels, and succulent shrimp. Enjoying your paella mixta is all the more satisfying with the knowledge that you have prepared it yourself!

Spanish Paella is certainly one of my favorite dishes and I have taken many Spanish Paella cooking classes for different occasions. This was one of the best so far. Chef Pino is a great chef and entertainer and his food is delicious. In the end, you learn how to make good and really authentic Spanish Paella. Anyone who is looking for a fun and entertaining cooking class in Los Angeles, I can certainly recommend this class.

I grew up in the Canary Islands where my Mother taught me recipes from her ancestors. Years later I was stationed at a base that hosted a monthly Paella party. One day the Colonel told me, “You’d better learn how to make paella, because the private who cooks them is leaving and you’ll be in charge.” I perfected my craft on and off the base over the next few years. Since returning to civilian life in 1989, I have cooked paellas all over the world, for friends, family and clients.
