PAELLAS SHOWCOOKING IN MALLORCA

This option is very popular for events of all kinds. We organize the paella showcookings in our catering in Mallorca or in Ibiza, where attendees can watch and participate in the cooking process of this traditional Spanish dish.

WHAT DOES THE PAELLA SHOWCOOKING CONSIST OF?

The paella showcooking is a form of presentation and preparation of a paella, in which the chef or cook prepares it in front of the audience, showcasing their techniques and culinary skills. This way, attendees are fully involved in the entire process, from ingredient selection to finally tasting. This allows attendees to learn about the ingredients and the technique of paella preparation.

Furthermore, paella showcooking is an ideal way to promote and spread Spanish culture and gastronomy. Specialized paella chefs can demonstrate their skill and knowledge in preparing this delicious dish, and attendees can enjoy a unique and authentic culinary experience.

These types of events are often organized in open spaces, making Tast-out's estates in Mallorca perfect for hosting them. In our catering service, we have these estates available for organizing paella showcookings in Mallorca or Ibiza.

A BIT OF HISTORY

THE UNSUSPECTED ORIGIN OF PAELLA

Paella is undoubtedly one of the emblematic dishes of Spanish cuisine, especially from Valencia, and there is no tourist who does not succumb to the charms of this rice dish.

THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME

Paella is undoubtedly one of the iconic dishes of Spanish gastronomy, especially from Valencia, and there is no tourist who does not succumb to the charms of this rice dish.

However, there is another more romantic theory. There is a story in which a man prepared paella to win the heart of his beloved. In Spanish, "paella" could derive from the phrase "por ella" or "para ella" meaning "for her" or "by her." Although this story may simply be a nice tale, there is some truth to it, as in Spain, it is generally women who cook, but the preparation of paella has traditionally been a task carried out by men.

PAELLA'S HISTORY

According to experts, the history of this dish dates back to the rural areas of Valencia during the 15th and 16th centuries. It emerged as a simple and easy-to-prepare meal for farmers and shepherds, using the ingredients they had available in the countryside. Paella was typically consumed in the late afternoon.<br />In its early days, the main ingredients were poultry, wild rabbit or hare, available fresh vegetables, rice, saffron, and olive oil. These were combined in the paella along with water and orange tree branches, and everything was cooked slowly over a low flame.

A UNIQUE RECIPE?

The farmers would take advantage of the snails they found in the fields, but Valencian paella could also include rabbit, duck, chicken, pork, tomatoes, beans, peppers, zucchini, and onions. Saffron was added to give the dish more flavor and aroma. Additionally, some would make paella with cuttlefish, squid, prawns, langoustines, mussels, and/or clams, along with fresh vegetables.

However, nowadays, the most recognized version of this typical dish is the mixed paella, a later variant that causes some rejection among Valencians, who consider that the authentic Valencian paella should not combine seafood with meat. Nevertheless, paella is one of those dishes that allows practically any ingredient, as each person can use those they like the most, making each preparation unique. There is no recipe that unifies the wide variety of possibilities offered by this dish.

At Tast Out, we want attendees at our paella showcookings to enjoy all the tradition and flavor that this unique dish can offer.

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE AT TAST OUT

In Tast Out's paella showcooking, the chef starts by showing the audience the ingredients he will be using and explains how to select the best products to obtain a high-quality paella. This is always a priority in our catering service in Mallorca. Next, the paella pan is heated, and the ingredients are added in the correct order, following the chef's instructions.

Once all the ingredients have been added, the chef stirs the paella with a wooden spoon and lets it cook over medium heat for a few minutes, until the rice is cooked to perfection.

Once the paella is ready, the chef serves it in portions and presents it to the audience, explaining the details of the preparation process and giving tips on how to serve and enjoy the paella.

In summary, paella showcooking is a fun and educational way to enjoy one of Spain's most popular dishes. Additionally, it's a perfect option for events and parties, as it allows attendees to see how paella is prepared and enjoy a delicious meal at the same time.
