Description

Price from: £8.25 per person

We supply Authentic Spanish paella, using the very best ingredients from Spain, cooked in pans which range in size from 4 to 225 guests. We can cater outside for any number. For event inside, we can either cook outside and bring the paella inside for guests to help themselves from the big pans or we can put the paella into small pans on the tables. If we cannot cook outside, we can use our electric pans

We provide a full range of sides from tapas to salads to frites and everything else for a truely memorable Spanish experience

We only use the very best ingredients; mainly La Bomba rice from the Albafera region ( it absorbs 3 times its weight in water and fattens out rather than growing longer like long grain so it takes in huge amounts of flavour ), saffron from Castilla La Mancha, paprika from Murcia and a whole host of spices and flavours from many parts of Spain and North Africa

Paella originally was a true peasants food from around the Valencia region in Spain. Inland the paella would have been mainly rice and vegetables with maybe rats, frogs & toads, rabbits, snakes; in fact, anything that was free and cheap. On the coast, the rice probably would not have had so many vegetables but would have had all the seafood that they could not sell ( including monkfish that was so ugly no-one wanted to buy it whereas now it is expensive as people have realised that the flesh tastes amazing )
Spanish paella is mainly rice but the English prefer it with a greater ratio of meat, which is what we supply. The most popular is chicken & chorizo ( which was actually invented by Jamie Oliver in the 90's and not very well liked by the Spanish so beware; if a restaurant in Spain if doing Chicken & Chorizo, it is catering for tourists not locals )

Paella can only be cooked well with the right ingredients but it mainly requires passion; it needs a subtle touch and a need to truely care for it. We have been cooking paella for over 20 years and are still learning !!!!

Steve was great - very accommodating, unobtrusive, patient and everyone loved the food! Compared with others his paellas were very good value indeed. I highly recommend Steve and Scoff & Nosh.

Steve was completely amazing at our wedding. Everything was made according to the schedule we provided and served up punctually. The food was completely delicious - everyone had enough food and really enjoyed it! Steve made a special portion for one of our guests who had a legumes allergy. No other special arrangements were necessary as the choice of paella and tapas satisfied most dietary requirements. Would definitely recommend Steve!
