Seafood and Chicken Paella with Sam

Sunday, May 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

If you can sauté, you can make paella! Truly, whatever you make may be superior to what many restaurants routinely turn out. It’s best-served buffet style and it does not have to be piping hot.

Note: most classes this year will be donation-based with no set price. Whatever you donate, the proceeds will go to a charity to support social justice causes. We thought this would be a good way to cook while doing something fantastic for communities all over the country. The beneficiary non-profit for this class will be The Loveland Foundation an organization that provides mental health and therapy support for black women and girls in need.

See below for the ingredient list, sign up on Eventbrite and tell a friend! Suggested donation $25. Once signed up, I will send you the Zoom link two days before the start of the class. *NOTE: CLASS STARTS 3PM PST/6PM EST
