When you think of food trucks, hot dogs, burgers, pizza, and pretzels often come to mind, and those options can get a little tiresome. What if there was a Naples’ food truck that offered unique cuisine and excitement at the same time?
Fire & Rice founder, Chef Paul Schmidgall, has created a food truck experience like no other and built a successful franchise on the concept. He’s been sharing his award-winning paella in a communal dining setting to the people of Naples and throughout the country for more than a decade, and people can’t get enough of it.
Never tried paella? We invite you to come down to the Third Street Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 7:30 am to 11:30 am and the Marco Island Marco Island Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays from 7:30 am to 1:00 pm to try our delicious paella. Look for our food truck and join in the fun!
An Exciting Naples’ Food Truck Alternative for Your Next Party or Event
Chef Paul was first introduced to the paella concept when he visited the small Spanish Island of Menorca while stationed with the military in Europe more than twenty years ago. There, an elderly woman taught him how to prepare this beautiful dish, and he’s been passionate about paella ever since. Now, the ultimate paella experience can be brought directly to you, whether you need catering for a private party or a large event.
Wherever we go, our chefs pour passion and enthusiasm into every dish. As we prepare the finest ingredients dating back to 16th-Century Spain in a large shallow pan, our paella is both beautiful and sensual with a rainbow of colors and gentle aromas that fill the air. During the process, the flavors meld together, and the result is simply divine, like nothing you’ve ever tasted before.
Chicken, sausage, and saffron imported from Spain are fused with Bomba Rice, and the meat can be swapped out or combined with seafood. Vegan options are also available, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether it’s Mixta Paella, Paella Valencia, or Paella de Marisco, guests will relish in the delightful textures and flavors of this magnificent dish and remember it for years to come. Many of our clients have traveled all over the world and say our paella is the best they’ve ever tasted.
