You will be guided during the whole cooking process by the Chef.
Before delighting yourself with your Paella, you will enjoy some tapas made of local products with a glass of wine, beer or juice.
Then it will be time to eat! You will start with a Valencian salad, followed by the Paella paired with a careful selection of original wines, a typical Valencian dessert and liqueur.
