Experience the authentic flavors and ambience of Old Spain in the comfort of your own home.
Carlos Delgado and Jesus Soriano, your personal chefs and entertainers, will come to your home and prepare an authentic Spanish paella. Your chefs then transform into musicians and serenade you and your guests into the evening!
Jesus Soriano, born and raised in Madrid, is an accomplished singer and guitar player, with over 40 years experience and a wonderful, deep and rich repertoire of folk music from many regions of Spain. Jesus is also a passionate and marvellous paella chef who learned from his mother Rosalia.
Carlos Delgado grew up in Spain (his father is from Ronda in Andalucia). His Aunt Maribel, a native of Valencia - the home of the paella - passed along some of her best kept cooking secrets to him. He learned traditional Spanish folk music while living in Madrid and has performed with Jesus for over 20 years in San Diego.
While you enjoy your meal, Carlos and Jesus will serenade you and your guests.

"Your paella is fantastic! It is moist and full of flavor...both the high
quality ingredients and attention to detail in preparation come through in
the taste. Unlike some other purveyors of paella, you do not skimp!
In addition to being tasty, the paella makes for a beautiful presentation. Highly recommended."
