Virtual Cooking Class: Demystifying Paella with Chef Rodger
Friday, September 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15
Chef and co-managing partner of Zingerman’s Delicatessen, Rodger Bowser, is passionate about paella. In Rodger’s own words: “The thing about paella is that, although it’s one of the most recognized elements of traditional Spanish cooking, not enough folks in the United States have had a good one. Which bums me out because the truth of the matter is that, done well, it’s really pretty easy to make, and marvelously delicious to eat. My challenge is to help get you past the inevitable fear of the unknown, and, by explaining some simple keys, get people like you and me to make paella a regular part of our repertoires. This isn’t just lip service. I’m convinced that good paella is worthy of entry into our regular routines. No, not something you whip up for the kids at a moment’s notice. But still, a dish you could make on a weekend, for a football crowd or a family get together.”
In this virtual cooking class, Rodger will take you through the history, the importance of the ingredients, potential variations, and answer the burning question, “Do I really need a paella pan?” This class will be held over Zoom. Rodger will answer questions through a moderator throughout the discussion.
The day of the event, you will receive a downloadable PDF with recipes and tips about paella, as well as the link to the Zoom demonstration. You can be anywhere in the country and participate in this event!
