Paella Pan Menus

Authentic Big Paella Pan Catering

Our Paella Pan Caterers only use the freshest and authentic ingredients from York like Santo Tomas Spanish paella rice and Carmencita Valenciana “Paellero” paella seasoning to create authentic paella pan catering. But if you don’t like traditional paella with all its seafood in, don’t worry we have lots of tasty and exciting other paella pan menus. Our paellas are cooked from scratch and often right in front of your guests to see and smell all the wonderful flavours infusing together.  Making this a truly fantastic Gastro experience for guests at weddings or party’s or any special occasion around Yorkshire served directly from the pan in-front of guests either inside a hall or marquee or under one of our gazebos in your back garden or anywhere in Yorkshire, the experience is brilliant as we hear so many people say when we are doing these.

All menus include quality disposable crockery and cutlery

Included in Big Pan Menus

Giant paella pan catering is one of the newer, fun ways of eating, and our paella pan caterers strive to take the concept of catering and using our skills of encompassing the world’s finest cuisine to create a new exciting and tasty level. Originally starting with Spanish Paella in York we have created a big pan menu that we carry out at events all around Leeds, Sheffield, York and throughout Yorkshire. Using our own big pans, we combine virtually all the ingredients into one big pan letting flavours mingle and infuse together for a new taste sensation. This method of cooking and presentation suits small to medium to large parties (60-150-250 people). We can, of course, cook for larger functions by increasing the number of big pans we use.

‘Good Times with Great Food’

Paella Pan Catering

We will arrive in good time to set everything up and start cooking your big pan menu which is usually done outside however we can do them inside if there is good ventilation in quite a large area.  Most paella pan menus take one to two hours to prepare before service can commence then we serve directly from the paella pan to your guests giving the chance for them to see and experience the sheer size and wow factor of these giant sized Spanish paella pans for themselves.  Once all your guests have finished we will discreetly come round collecting in plates and cutlery from them before tidying away the paella pan area we have been working and serving from leaving it as we found it so that you would never know we were there. So as we take care of everything to do with the paella pan food our clients can sit back and relax enjoying themselves with there guests as they receive praise and compliments about our food and service.
