Paella and
a Picture

Dinner Series (PAST)


Fall 2012

We took over a warehouse and Chef John Cornely and his team did Paella four ways over 40 gallon drums outside. A meat lovers version with Andouille sausage, beef, Whitby’s Better Bacon. A southern version with hand-made chicken & squab sausage, a seafood version with NC shrimp. Spanish chorizo, clams and mussels and a vegetable version with artichokes, green peas and tomatoes. There also was 4 varieties of Sangria to match. The movie was brought to a vote  between “Coming to America”, “Uncle Buck”, “Dazed And Confused” and “Almost Famous”. Penny Lane won out.

Activities include, mini living rooms” were setup onsite with couches and tables, a interactive s’more cupcake station where guests toasted marshmallows over the fires in the 40 gallon drums.
