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.
