Perfect Spanish Paella Mixta

, Private Chef, @BurntSugarNYC

UPDATE:  *Eight students are already enrolled, so there are 4 more tickets available for this class date/time!  See you there!

Have you ever eaten an amazing paella and wondered how you could make it yourself at home? For those of you that can’t make it to Valencia this summer, join me to learn how to make your very own paella and celebrate with friends and family like a true Spaniard!

In this class we’ll make an original, Spanish Paella Mixta that will include chicken, chorizo, shrimp, mussels, green peas and of course saffron.  This is a true crowd-pleaser that will have you and your friends eating right out of the paellera just as the field workers in Spain did 800 years ago!  From start to finish, you’ll learn all the basics for making a perfectly seasoned,      al dente paella.

This class is geared towards beginners and will be hands-on, so wear something you don’t mind getting a bit messy in.  We’ll start out by discussing the five pillars of making a great paella:  (1) the rice, (2) the pan, (3) the heat, (4) the sofrito, (5) the liquid and (6) the soccarat.  And as always, we’ll toast with a little sangria and dive right in.  

Each student will get to eat paella and if there are any leftovers, you will be taking it home along with the recipe so you’re ready to get started entertaining your friends.

Kelly Leding

Private Chef, @BurntSugarNYC

Kelly was born and raised in the South and grew up vegetable gardening and canning/preserving everything from spicy pickles to strawberry jam.  She’s had wanderlust her whole life, so she's spent much of her time traveling abroad eating her way through various countries and picking up cooking techniques from the locals.

She left her advertising career behind to pursue her true passion for all things food and started Burnt Sugar NYC where she currently works as a private chef/caterer/1:1 private cooking lesson instructor in Manhattan.

During a yearlong sabbatical from college, she worked as the interim/assistant pastry chef at James At The Mill in Johnson, AR and regularly conducts cooking/baking demos at The Broadway Panhandler here in NYC, all the while working on her dream project...a cookbook.

Most recently, she catered the Academy of Motion Picture & Sciences Foreign Film Oscar Nominees event in Manhattan, catering to Meryl Streep (which was a dream!), and recently worked with the talented Dutch Chef, Linda Steen who was the featured guest chef at this year's Russ & Daughter's Herring Festival Event.

Her latest culinary adventure took her to Beijing & Chengdu, China this February where she picked up a really badass Chinese cleaver and a few wok skills learned from the locals in their home kitchens.
