The Hungry Cuban Paella Chef

Paella 285 x 150Paella Party

We have worked with Chef Juan Montalvo “The Hungry Cuban” many times and the guests always rave about Chef Juan and his Paellas. Why not try something different for your next event. Paella is a classic Spanish dish comprised of rice, stock, saffron, and a variety of meats, shellfish and vegetables. All are cooked in one giant pan, outside, over an open fire.  Paella originates in Valencia, Spain, and the name of the dish refers to the pan in which it is cooked. The dish symbolizes the heritage of two cultures, Roman, where the pan originated and Arab the source of the basic ingredient, rice. The Romans, who also conquered Spain, brought with them a flat dish to cook with, called patella. This word evolved into paila and finally paella (pronounced pah-ay-liah).

Chef Juan Montalvo comes from Spanish ancestors who taught him all the right techniques needed to make the perfect Paella. Using the finest ingredients and making sure that every thing  he put sin his Paellas is  fresh and are of top quality, just  two of the major things that sets him apart from the competition. Call Chef Juan at or visit his website at www.thehungrycuban.com

 

When you order a Paella Party from Chef Juan, you get Chef Juan.He doesn’t  hire outside chefs to cook for his guests. He takes pride in his work so you will only see Chef Juan behind the Paella pan. All the more reason to book today, there are just so many days he can cook.

 Neil,

I want to thank you for your ongoing support of Ian’s Friends Foundation! It was such an honor to have you join us Saturday night. I am ecstatic to report that our event raised over $900,000 for pediatric brain tumor research! It is because of YOU that we are able to make a difference.  On behalf of all of the children battling brain tumors, thank you for your time! Your support is critical in sponsoring the research so desperately needed to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors.

We hope to work with you again in the future. With gratitude,

Just wanted to tell you how impressed Pamela and I were with your work at the JFS Annual Dinner.  You really were responsible for making the auctions a financial success … and at the same time, made it fun for the participants & onlookers. 

Any way … didn’t want to let the weekend pass w/o letting you know you really helped make the evening a success.  I estimated you took in almost $200,000 during the Live Auction … and I know there was a good deal of activity on the timed auction items, as well.  See you soon ! ~ bob
