We organized the Paellea Workshop as a competition between teams, which requires guest to be more involved and in turn have some fun during the process.

Students will be divided into teams, memebers of each team will be given a distinctive apron color and all of the necessary ingredients and utinsils.
With the supervision of the cooks, who will help oversee the entire process, the participants will prepare all the ingredients and cook the paellas with Wood-fire.

During the preparation of the paellas, appetizers will be served (peanuts, olives, chips) accompanied by soft drinks and mineral water.

Once the Paellas are cooked, a jury formed by the teachers/supervisors who accompany the group, will decide the winning team of the competition, by means of a “blind taste test”.

A few select participants from the winning team will be awarded a souvenir for their participation.

Then the entire group will be served Paella along with some starters and salad (prepared by the students with produce from our garden.
