Paella Class at Dreams La Romana

We offer a number of delicious dishes at Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa, but one that always seems to be a crowd pleaser is our seafood paella. This dish is largely influenced by our Spanish heritage, but made with the perfect Caribbean twist.

To give you an idea of this dish’s origins, here’s a little history for you. In 1492, Christopher Columbus landed on the island and named it Isla Española, which later became Hispaniola. During the period of his conquest, Spanish women who relocated here wanted to recreate the famous paella of their homeland, but they were forced to adapt the recipe to local ingredients.

Therefore, Paella in the Dominican Republic is one of the most versatile dishes in Dominican cuisine. There are countless ways it can be prepared, beginning with just a little rice, annatto (for coloring) and whatever else is on hand – usually fresh and tasty seafood!

Take a look at these pictures of a recent paella class at our resort. It was a fun event for all who participated and everyone got to enjoy their creation at the end!

    All I can say is WOW. And I mean WOW. What a perfect way to set the tone for an amazing evening. The Paella Party Catering delivers amazing Paella, amazing service, and more! The head chef is a delight. Chef Ciado takes the time to explain the paella process and will answer any question a guest may have along the way. He is a real pleasure to have at your party. More importantly, the food. THE FOOD. Having lived in Spain I can say that the paella is potentially the best paella I have ever tasted. It is a burst of flavor, perfectly cooked, that leaves one wanting MORE. I am still thinking about it a week after the fact. And I cannot forgot her delightful Sangria. The perfect finish to the perfect meal. I would definitely recommend The Paella Party Catering as the caterer for any type of event! What a unique way to make a statement for your guests. Definitely not the average party!
