Paella Fiesta!

Presented by Ricardo Zaratustra
About the class

Learn how to make authentic Spanish paella, churros and sangria in this Paella Fiesta! class with Chef Ricardo ‘Tustra’ Zaratustra, on Thursday 11th March from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.

Tustra grew up in the Canary Islands where he learnt the value of seafood, the joy of colourful living and the importance of flavour. Now he’s visiting the Essential Ingredient Newcastle to share his wisdom on all things ‘Spain’ in this cooking class.

When we think of Spain we think of the beloved national dish Paella. In this class Tustra will guide each group on how to make their own Paella with ingredients like fresh seafood, chorizo, chicken or seasonal vegetables (vegetarian option available).

Tustra will demonstrate how to make a refreshing sangria that you will enjoy with dinner. Finally, you will finish the class with a dessert of crispy churros dipped in dulce de leche.

We dare you to resist the seductive smells and guarantee that everything else will paella in comparison.
