From May 2023 courseDear Erick and Clare,
Thank you so much for your Tapas course at Selwyn College last Saturday. What a treat! And what a bonus Edrick to watch you make a ‘proper’ Valencian paella and give us your knowledge. I will always make paella with the aim of celebrating the rice, I will no longer mix seafood with chicken, nor shall one pea appear in my future paella and chorizo is also out the door.
The trick with the ‘ rice cross’ along with liquid up to the rivets is great to know too.
I really loved all our tapas dishes and I kept the Ensaladilla de pescado until the next day when we ate it spread on the bread with an anchovy on top. It was delicious. I will use all these recipes, a most useful course and I can’t wait until the sun shines again so I can show off to my friends with a Spanish evening at home.
You offered a certificate for learning the correct way of making Paella and I would love one please.
Thanks for teaching an old dog new tricks!
