Spain, like all of the other European countries, has many varied cuisines based on its geography. Tonight, we will focus on the coast line for one of Spain's most famous dishes - Paella! With its overflowing seafood and crunchy rice, who could not love it? While Celeste was in France, she spent some time with a family originally from Spain. One Sunday, the grandmother of the huge family spent all day stirring with an oar this massive, dug in the ground, pit of Paella. She was making enough Paella for her family of 50+. If it were not for all of the crawfish boils from Celeste's past in Louisiana, she would never have seen so much seafood in one place! The rice was soft, yet crunchy. The shrimp, as large as lobsters. The mussels were fanning and waving. The smell of saffron was permeating the air. And now she brings back this recipe to you!

Dinner Party classes are more social in nature, though you'll still learning how to cook and prepare awesome food! You get to work in groups, allowing for plenty of time to cook, eat, drink, and meet new friends. The class is hands-on, with each cooking station getting to make every dish, unless the dessert is something requiring preparation ahead.

We're BYOB, but we have great wine and unique beers for sale - some you can't find anywhere else in Houston! There is no corking fee if you choose to bring your beverage(s) of choice. We provide aprons, bottled water, wine glasses, water/beer glasses, ice, and bottle openers. Come hungry because there is plenty of food!
