The Best Of Fire & Rice Can Now Be Found In A Place You’d Never Expect – Your Indoor Or Outdoor Kitchen!
At the end of the day, you just gotta love the Internet. Online shopping has added so much freedom and peace of mind to the necessities we love and use every day.
And Paul Schmidgall agrees. So much so that he is now selling his signature hot sauce and spice blends online, easily to be found on your mobile phone, laptop, or Wi-Fi tablet.
Paul Loves It Hot And Spicy – And You Will, Too
Enjoy Naples’ original hot sauce from Fire & Rice Paella Catering at home. We use only the finest ingredients when preparing our paella, tapas, and desserts, and we’re passionate about the process. So, it will be no surprise that the same is true for our original hot sauce!
When creating our tangy, scrumptious, artisanal hot sauce, we start by blending dried cayenne chiles with vinegar, water, and kosher salt. Next, we let the flavors steep for a week before combining them with fresh tomato, onion, garlic, and paprika. Made in small batches, every ounce of our hot sauce is handcrafted and hand-bottled. If you like hot sauce, we think you’ll really enjoy it.
How hot is it? Good question.
You’re likely wondering, is it REALLY hot? On a scale of 1 to 10 for heat, our hot sauce is a 7, which means, yes, it’s pretty hot!
If you’ve ever visited Fire & Rice at the farmers’ markets, you know that we always have our hot sauce available to add to your paella, and it gets rave reviews.
We also bring our hot sauce along when we cater Naples’ parties and events, and we accidentally leave a bottle behind. (Wink, wink). If you found a bottle after a recent celebration, we hope you enjoyed it! We are pretty sure you darn well did.
If you’d like to purchase a bottle of our artisanal hot sauce, come on down to the farmers’ markets or select it from our pick-up menu online. Do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle – you’ll be hooked!
As our loyal and frequent paella clients know full well, Paul makes his legendary hot sauce and rubs in small batches, by hand. These items are available at the local Farmer's Markets; however, as the season for the markets wrap up in the coming weeks, demand still continues for these delicacies. This is why we are making it easy to order them online.
But Wait – The Best Is Yet To Come – More Fire & Rice Goodies Will Be Available Soon
Fire & Rice lovers rejoice! In the very near future, you will be able to purchase specialty Fire & Rice branded items, paella gift baskets, and even paella pans.

Enjoy A Unique Catering Experience In Naples With Delicious Paella & Classical Guitar
Aren’t you tired of the same ol’, run-of-the-mill catering fare that you encounter just about everywhere you go? Although people generally enjoy a stuffed mushroom cap and scallops wrapped in bacon, these options lack originality. While you’d like to offer exciting food options at your next party, you want to work with a catering company that you can trust to meet your expectations.
That’s exactly why we’re here. At Fire & Rice, we offer a unique catering experience that’s fun and exciting for everyone involved. Not only do we prepare and serve award-winning paella, but we also create an energized atmosphere that people will remember for years to come.
When your guests arrive, they’ll see our chefs enthusiastically preparing delicious paella out in front for everyone to see. Using only the finest ingredients dating back to 16th Century Spain, they’ll combine chicken and sausage with imported saffron and Bomba rice for a unique flavor and textures that are simply out of this world. Meat can be swapped out or combined with seafood, and vegan options are also available, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
As our chefs prepare the paella, they interact with the crowd, and guests gather around the pans. As the excitement builds, we encourage people to join in the preparation process. It’s fun and exciting, and everyone wants a turn!
The atmosphere at a Fire & Rice party is warm and inviting. As gentle aromas fill the air, beautiful Flamenco music plays in the background, and people come together in the sensual communal dining setting. And when they take their first bite of our award-winning paella, it exceeds every expectation. Many of our clients have traveled all over the world and say our paella is the best that they’ve ever tasted!
Paella Is The Perfect Party Food
Chef Paul Schmidgall, owner of Fire & Rice and a graduate of the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University, best describes paella as “passion in a pan”.
A Spanish rice dish with roots dating back to the 1500s, paella is a dish to share and bring people together.
If you haven’t enjoyed it yet, paella is cooked in a shallow pan without a lid, allowing for the evaporation necessary to give each dish its lovely texture.
Whether it’s a Mixta Paella, Paella Valencia, or Paella de Marisco, Fire & Rice creates every dish with love and enthusiasm, and the result is amazing. The beauty of our original paella is complemented by its magnificent aroma, sure to touch your senses even before you take the first bite. And when that first bite arrives, the wonderful flavor and texture is like nothing you’ve encountered before.
Our Mixta Paella features a sizzling combination of chicken, sausage, saffron, Calasparra rice, roasted peppers, white fish, clams, mussels, jumbo shrimp, peas, and is finished with fresh lemon.
For traditional paella lovers, our traditional recipe includes Calasparra rice, vegetables, chicken, handmade sausage, and seasonings.
And for delicacies from the sea, try our Paella de Marisco, our famous seafood paella, where we replace the meat with an assortment of white fish, clams, mussels, and jumbo shrimp.
