Paella is a delicious Spanish dish consisting of saffron rice, spices, veggies, and a choice of seafood or meat. 

The Dueling Paella Cook-off will showcase some of the best paella from some of the coolest Spanish chefs in town! Plus, there will be drinks. 

WHEN: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 | 7 to 9 p.m.
WHERE: Barcelona Wine Bar | 1622 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C., 20009
COST: Tickets are $35 per person for general admission. You can purchase them here.


DETAILS: Bring all your friends around the Barcelona Wine Bar on 14th Street to indulge in massive, delicious paella. Paella is meant to be shared amongst the table, and the cook-off will feature larger-than-life paella pans outside on the patio. The chefs will cook them in front of you, and while you wait for it to be ready (paella usually takes 25 to 30 minutes), you can nibble on some appetizer tapas and a selection of Spanish wines. Check out the menu of red, white, and rosé wines that will be available here.

You’ll, of course, be able to snap a couple photos of the two paella after they're finished (and before anyone gets their hands on them) for your Instagram feed or personal use. Then you can fill up your plate with both and decide which one is the winner!
