Tomorrow evening, chef-wannabes and foodies can storm the kitchen of La Valencia and learn how to make authentic paella from the hotel’s executive chef Lance Repp. Repp will teach the art of making Paella Valencia, the hotel’s signature dish, in an interactive class.
And to kick things up a notch, attendees will also learn how to make sangria, the fruit and wine drink that’s refreshing as it is satisfying. Resident mixologist and lead bartender Scotty Moises at La Valencia will be showing you how to make the perfect sangria, so you can show off the great cocktail at your next house party.
