Join Catalan culinary expert Rachel McCormack and Anna for a Spanish rice masterclass.  We will cover three very different techniques for cooking rice, all traditional in Spain, and then enjoy our creations for dinner with wine and a delicious dessert.  If you've always wanted to perfect your paella, this is the class for you!


Valencian paella with chicken & rabbit

Catalan rice with octopus

Aros al forno with pork ribs and black pudding

Hazelnut croquante with hazelnut soup and vanilla ice cream


Rachel is originally from Scotland but spent most of her twenties living in Barcelona, where she caught the Catalan obsession with food.  She now lives in London where she teaches cooking classes, runs food markets and writes about food.  She is also a regular panelist on BBC Radio 4's The Kitchen Cabinet, for which Anna works as food consultant behind the scenes (having had the idea for the show). 


This event will be in Anna's home teaching kitchen and is limited to just 8 guests.

Paella Night with Anna Colquhon and Rachel McCormack

Rating: 10 attended in February 2014, reviewed on 14 February 2014

I bought this as a birthday present for my foodie husband and we both thoroughly enjoyed this evening of Spanish rice. There's a lot more to Spanish rice dishes that paella as we found out. There was some hocus pocus with an octopus in the water ... that was exciting. The company was good and all the dishes were delicious as you get to sit down and have dinner at the end of the class. It was so inspiring that I've since bought a paella dish and a terracotta pot and have made Valencian baked rice with pork ribs and black pudding YUM.
