Taste of Sonoma is an annual event held at the MacMurray Ranch in Healdsburg. The ranch is now owned by the Gallo Family Winery which makes a whole range of very delicious wine like the Russian River Valley MacMurray Pinot Noir which was paired with our paella during the live cooking demonstration. Below are a few pictures of our paella, our team and some of the folks admiring our work. If you get the chance next year plan ahead, the event sells out of 2500 tickets at $165 each. If you do come make sure to drop by our booth and try our delicious paella.
Paella is a Valencian rice dish with a long history of tradition, a tradition that sometimes we, the folks at Paella Guy, like to interpret in unique and dramatic ways. This paella for Camlebak LLC at the Larson Family Winery was created with the intention of highlighting our fresh local salmon from Bodega Bay and as you can see, the salmon in its entirety is splendid to look at in the pan. The smaller paella is a gluten free vegetarian with soy chorizo and it was delicious with the pinot grigio served by the Larson team.
Paella and vino (wine) go together like peas in a pod so when the Gallo Winery was having their 2014 Corporate Innovation Day in Sonoma County, where do you think they turned for paella to serve with their fabulous wines? Yes, we made several amazing paellas to go with local as well as some of their imported Spanish vino.Below you'll see a seafood paella, vegetarian and a meat and seafood combination(our favorite) served in a relaxed picnic environment.
