What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

Escape to Valencia with our authentic Spanish Paella class! In this fun and interactive class, you will learn how to create this famous Spanish favourite known for its signature golden saffron hue, smoky flavours of chorizo, fresh shrimp and textured vegetables. You will also learn how to flavour profile and blend Spanish flavours, and where to source fresh, seasonal ingredients in order to master the perfect Paella. Perfect for entertaining, wow your friends and family at your next dinner party with your new found signature dish! 

No experience is required! We provide all the equipment and ingredients, which are easy to find at local markets if you don’t already have them in your home kitchen. Our events are casual and meant to be fun and instructive, not hardcore. This class is designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step as it is for the first-timer who’s happier observing and assisting (or taste testing). You will work with other students in groups of 2-4. 

Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in, especially if you’re part of a large group. Drinks are available for purchase from the venue and are NOT included in the ticket price. Outside drinks are not allowed. 21+ only.

Question from Anonymous
Is the shrimp you use frozen and packaged or is it fresh?
Answer from Carin R. Verified Student
He used precooked frozen packaged shrimp but he said you can use fresh if you want you obviously just cook it before.
Question from Emily H.
Do you eat the paella at the end of the class and/or take it with you? Is it a meal-sized portion for each person? I'll be in the city all day with my mom and need to know if we should make any lunch arrangements or if this will cover it :)
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Students get to eat what they cook or make at the end of the class. They will be working in groups so each group would have enough servings for 2-3 people. Hope this helps!
Question from Andrea
Hello, we are a foody family and would like to come to the paella class with my family. My sons are 15 and 19 and love cooking. Can they come? Thanks
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hello there! Students must be 21 years old to attend the class as per the school's policy. Thanks.
Question from Anonymous
Would it be possible to make a non-meat version? (Seafood is fine)
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hello there! You will work with other students in a group of four in the paella class. So if the student comes alone or in a group less than 4, it is hard to adjust the recipe. Hope this helps!
Question from Ivie C.
Hi, I know it says Chorizo and Shrimp but I want to make sure there isn't any other shellfish in the dish. Can you please confirm?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Ivie! There is no other shellfish used in this Spanish class in NYC.

Spanish Paella
Reviewed by Arys N. on 3/2/2020
The instructor was wonderful. The ingredients were most canned and or frozen. Hoped to see more fresh ingredients and not pre-packaged seasoning.

Spanish Paella
Reviewed by Anonymous on 12/31/2019
Jerry was very nice, very welcoming, made a very nice environment and was entertaining (kept the mood up and happy). The class flowed smoothly. A bit more attention to detail like the recipe handout was missing baking temp and time as well as Sofrito ingredient. Home made Sofrito would have been a nice touch and the recipe for it would have given the history lesson a nice twist. Overall nice time.
