Sydney’s Secret Ingredient for Authentic Paella

Paella. It’s the dish that says “fiesta!” in Spain, and it’s the dish that Paella Amor catering is all about.

Now, I know what you're thinking: paella catering? In Sydney? A risky proposition, don't you think?

But Paella Amor is not your average catering company. They're obsessed with authenticity. Chef Tim uses nothing but fresh ingredients in traditional Spanish recipes, and he cooks it all on-site, right in front of you.

In this blog post, we'll be covering everything you need to know about paella catering in Sydney. We'll discuss the importance of fresh ingredients and authentic Spanish flavours, as well as the different paella catering options available from Paella Amor. We'll also provide tips for choosing the right paella catering package for your event and how to contact Paella Amor to book your order.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Fresh ingredients

Paella Amor sources its ingredients from local suppliers whenever possible. This means that the ingredients are fresh as hell and of the highest quality. Chef Tim also uses traditional Spanish ingredients, like Bomba rice, saffron, and pimentón de la Vera.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: “dude, just what in God’s name is Bomba rice?”

In short, it’s a type of Spanish rice that’s known for its ability to absorb flavours. It’s also got a nice, nutty flavour of its own.

Saffron is a spice that’s made from the dried stigmas of the saffron crocus flower. It’s one of the most expensive spices in the world, but it’s worth it. It gives paella its signature yellow colour and its unique flavour.

Pimentón de la Vera is a type of smoked paprika that's made in the La Vera region of Spain. It's got a smoky, earthy flavour that's perfect for paella.

Authentic paella means authentic flavours

Paella Amor’s Chef Tim is so experienced he could probably make a decent paella blindfolded. (Just kidding. He would never do that. Promise…)

But all jokes aside, Chef Tim uses traditional Spanish cooking techniques to create paella dishes that are so authentic you'll feel like you're transported to Spain with every bite you take.

Chef Tim also uses a slew of other authentic Spanish flavours like chorizo – a type of Spanish sausage that adds a bit of spice and heat to the dish.

Another important factor in creating authentic paella is the cooking technique. Paella Amor's chef uses a traditional paella pan to cook the rice and ingredients. This pan is wide and shallow, which allows the rice to cook evenly and develop a crispy bottom. This is what gives paella its signature "socarrat," or crispy rice crust.

Paella catering options

Paella Amor provides many paella catering options, including:

  • Seafood paella is made with a variety of seafood, like prawns, mussels, and calamari.

  • Chicken paella is made with chicken, chorizo, and vegetables.

  • Vegetarian paella is made with vegetables like peas, carrots, and artichokes.

Paella Amor also offers different side dishes to complement your paella catering order, e.g., Spanish salad, garlic bread, and sangria.

How to customise your paella catering order

Chef Tim knows that no two palates are alike. Got a dietary restriction? Paella Amor has your back. Want your paella extra spicy? Just say the word. Paella Amor will crank up the heat until your taste buds are begging for mercy – and fret not, we got milk.

So, if you’re looking for a paella catering company in Sydney that will go the extra mile, Paella Amor is the right one for you. Just be sure to come hungry.
