For those escaping the chill of winter, sunny Naples days are ahead. As you ditch the cold for pleasant, warm days, you’re likely thinking about unique ways to celebrate with returning friends and family.
Hosting a Welcome Back Party is a great time to bring people together for food and fellowship. But don’t make yourself the chef or depend on traditional caterers. Instead, do something bold and different that your guests will remember for years to come—a paella party!
Fire & Rice Creates Exceptional Food and an Experience
Instead of a buffet of food that’s just okay, plan a cuisine experience for your gets with Fire & Rice, Naples’ award-winning paella catering. Chef Paul Schmidgall, an expert at original and authentic paella, learned how to cook this famed Spanish dish by watching the captivating work of an elderly Spanish woman.
Her passion was contagious, and that’s what Chef Paul can bring to your event. He even calls his paella dishes “passion in a pan.”
While paella parties are a big trend in Naples, their roots go back centuries. Your guests will be amazed watching Chef Paul work his paella magic.
Because paella is meant to be shared, it offers a communal dining feel. Not only will everyone enjoy the quality and flavor of the dish, they’ll also love this special dining experience.
Friends and Family Will Have a Night to Remember
Food is often the focus of Welcome Back Parties. Yet, the standard catering experience isn’t anything that will spark excitement. From the moment your guests arrive, they’ll realize this is much more than a dinner party!
Guests can gather around the large shallow pans used for paella and smell the whiffs of seasoning in the air. They can even be part of the process. Everyone can take a turn at stirring the paella, so they can certainly take credit for the masterful meal. At paella parties, everybody’s a chef.
Customize the Paella to Fit Your Taste
Classic paella incorporates chicken, handmade sausage, fresh veggies, imported saffron, and Bomba rice. In addition, we offer several other varieties on our menu to include seafood (white fish, clams, and jumbo shrimp). Vegan options are also available.
In addition to paella, you can choose from several tapas to offer to guests before the paella is complete.
