When the quintessential dish of Spain and culinary all-stars from across the country and Mexico come together, you know it’s time for the return of the 5th Annual Corona Paella Challenge hosted by Chef Johnny Hernandez. This March 9, join fellow epicureans for a beautiful afternoon featuring distinguished Chefs from San Antonio, across the United States and Mexico, live entertainment, wines from Spain, and sangria on the grounds of The Pearl. Watch as chefs and high school teams go head-to-head in competition to create the most impressive paella dishes cooked right before your eyes. All of the proceeds to benefit the Culinary Institute of America’s San Antonio campus.
The ticket price is all-inclusive - meaning it includes entry into the event, sampling of amazing Paella and other tasty bites from the chefs as well as beverages (Beer, Wine, Sangria, Sodas & Water) and the entertainment for the day.
Some vendors may be on-site selling products - which would be the only separate charges - and are specialty items.
Visit www.paellachallenge.com for more information on participating chefs and a photo gallery from last year's event.
This event does take place rain or shine - and is outdoors! We will be set-up in the parking lot underneath Highway 281 at the Pearl.
