Cooking class...paella!

Honestly, we do more than eat here.  However, food is just so photogenic, so excuse the lack of diversity in these posts. The director at Mester arranged for the group to go to a cooking class at a well known hotel and restaurant (once I remember the name of the place, I'll update this post).  The chef cooked paella, a traditional Spanish dish with chicken, shrimp, mussel, squid, rice, peppers and many other things I can't recall, simmered in a broth.  After watching him and his assistants cook the meal, we went upstairs to eat dinner that was preceded by a great parade of appetizers.  The combinations sounded rather unusual (violet ice cream and duck liver), but all tasted great!

  1. This was the first time I had paella. Since that evening, the cook here at our residencia made her version, which was delicious, especially after a long day of hiking and sightseeing in the country.
