Online Cooking Class - Authentic Spanish Paella

Learn how to prepare an authentic saffron-scented Spanish seafood paella right in your own kitchen.

Prepare an authentic, one-pan seafood paella from scratch as well as a refreshing and flavor-forward Spanish salad under the guidance of Chef Daniel in this virtual cooking class. There is no need for any specialized equipment other than a flat skillet of the appropriate size. A 9-inch skillet is ideal for paella that serves two to three people, while a 12-inch skillet is good for four to six people.

“We know ingredients are hard to find these days, so I’m available to work with you on substitutions. We do not need a specialized paella pan, we can cook this dish with any medium size flat-bottomed skillet!” - Chef Daniel

great class. My wife and I had a great time. It was great that he was encouraging questions to be asked and with the initiate feeling you felt like it was just us and the chef. The chef was great at explaining reasons and gave feedback..."no, this will not work" or "make sure you cook that a little longer" The only reason it was not 5 stars is that the chef was not using seafood like the rest of us. He did a good job explaining the veggies that he was using and how they compared to which seafoods we would cook. I would just have liked to see a similar dish when completed.
