I love Spanish food. Ever since I worked on an herb farm in Spain in the mid-90s and traveled around the country to and from it for several months it's had a good hold on my heart. Lucky me, I'm now working on the Toro Bravo Cookbook -- I promise I'll give more details soon. So, when this paella press release landed several weeks ago I knew I had to share it with you. Below you'll find all the details for this fundraising September paella dinner pretty much straight from the press release...
Hillsdale Main Street, a non-profit dedicated to revitalizing Hillsdale, is hosting the Hillsdale Paella Dinner on Saturday, September 10th from 6-8pm in the Hillsdale business district under a large tent next to Korkage Wine Bar & Shop.
The Hillsdale Paella Dinner claims to be the largest paella dinner in Oregon -- the paella pan is more than 5 feet in diameter -- and I believe it. The open-to-the-public dinner features tapas, breads, desserts, drinks and, of course, paella by chefs Ted Coonfield, Greg Higgins, and Chris Biard.
Dinner will be served to 300 people under a tent decorated to transport you to Valencia, Spain. Besides the paella itself, entertainment will include flamenco dancing and wine tasting. Tickets are $75/person. Sponsors of the event include Baker & Spice, Food Front Cooperative Grocery and Pacific Natural Foods. Are you going to go?
