Paella Party
The crowd enjoys Spanish food and wine!

Our theme for this event was Spanish Paella, so we prepared a seafood based paella and a chicken and chorizo paella. Both were devoured by the hungry crowd, with not a skerrick of rice left in the pan! Oh, we love that … always a reassuring sign that our food was enjoyed. We used Herbies Paella Spice which is a great flavour base for any paella. We basically follow the recipe on the back of the pack, and its easily adapted to either seafood or chicken and chorizo.

Seafood Paella
A great way to feed a hungry crowd!

To kick off the evening we served a selection of tapas including Spanish Almonds, Marinated Olives and crackers topped with Manchego cheese and Guava paste. Manchego is a Spanish sheeps milk cheese produced in the La Mancha region. It is an artisan product that is produced following strict guidelines. It is firm in texture, with a tangy, full and rich flavour.

Marinated Olives

Wine was supplied by Marco from the Palmers Store, who selected a Spanish Tempranillo and a Witches Falls wild ferment Verdelho. Both wines complimented the Spanish food perfectly. Marco runs a busy store, located on Yamba Road, Palmers Island (just opposite the school), where you can stop in for a coffee, a bite to eat, or to purchase some boutique wines, ciders or beers. You may also find local produce on display too.
