Paella with

Spring Vegetables Tasting

 

Along with Paella Catering Services in Perth, we also do paella demos and tastings!

 

This time we had a Paella with Spring Vegetables at Camboon Primary School to show Camboon kids how delicious and healthy is to eat vegetables.

 

They absolutely enjoyed  the paella cooking experience but above all the eating. 

 

Arte Paella did it again! It was a success and we are really happy to share with others our passion for cooking.

 

Thank you ;-)

 

 

Perth duo claims bronze at International Paella Valenciana Competition

 

TWO Perth Spaniards have brought home a bronze medal for their signature seafood paella at last month’s International Paella Valenciana Competition held in Tasmania.

Bassendean resident Raquel Zamora Martinez and Floreat resident Beatriz Lorente Lacasta, who run a small catering company called Arte Paella, competed against teams from countries including the United States, Peru, Costa Rica and Japan.

They missed out on a trip to Spain to cook off in the finals with their third place finish.

It was the first time the duo entered the competition and the first time WA came top three.

 

Ms Lacasta said it was a Spanish family tradition where about 20 people would fight for the “el socarrat” or caramelised rice at the bottom of the dish, every Sunday lunch.

Ms Martinez said in the competition the judges were critical of their “el socarrat”.

“The hardest part is that once you put the rice in and you have to control the intensity of the fire and make decisions quickly,” she said.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CARBON STEEL PAELLA PAN AND ENAMELLED PAELLA PAN

Would you like to make your own paella? You will certainly delight your guests with this delicious dish, however you will need to decide first which paella pan you should buy. Let us give you some advice and tips!

 

In Spain we have two different kind of paella pans, the carbon steel paella pan  and the enamelled paella pan. Which paella pan shall you choose?

 

 

The Carbon steel Paella Pan or also called The Silver Paella Pan    

 Carbon Steel Paella Pan

 

 This is the traditional Paella Pan from Valencia. Carbon steel conducts heat quickly and evenly. You can use it on the fire, grill or even in the oven.

 

          ADVANTAGES:

  • For the traditionalists, the Carbon Steel Paella Pan brings a slight metallic taste to the socarrat (caramelized rice on the bottom of the pan). This is very pleasant to many people.

  • They are cheaper.

 

          DISADVANTAGES

  • Being made of polished steel, it requires more careful maintenance. After cleaning it oxidises so you have to dry it very well and coat it with a little oil after each clean. If the pan rusts, rubbing steel wool will remove it. You may need to do this prior to each use.

 

 

The  Enamelled Paella Pan or also called Black Paella Pan

Enamelled Paella Pan

  

This is the modern version of the Paella Pan. They're coated with a black and white speckled enamel. Just like the Carbon Steel Paella Pan you can use the enamelled Paella Pans on the fire, grill or in the oven.

 

          ADVANTAGES:

  • The biggest advantage is that it doesn’t get oxidated. Cleaning and maintenance becomes an easy task.

  • Because of the enamelled material, it is possible to put it in the dishwasher without concern.

  • If you have induction, there is a special enamelled Paella pan for use on induction stoves. The Induction Paella pan is specially designed to use on flat surfaces unlike traditional paellas which are slightly convex at the bottom, induction paella pans are perfectly flat to optimize the cooking surface area.

     

          DISADVANTAGES:

  • They are more expensive
