About the Paella School:
The Escuela de Arroces y Paella Valenciana was created thinking of you. In August 2013 started to arise the idea of offering everyone, visitors and locals, the chance to experience at first hand the Valencian ritual of the Paella, whith the aim of spreading one of the Valencian par excellence social event.
This experience is not only about eating a good (and authentic) Paella, also to experience and to learn to purchase all the necessary ingredients. Get an insight into the history and the social significance of the dish. Meeting its origins and techniques will allow you to enjoy an unforgettable experience of cultural immersion.
We wanted you to cook by yourself, step by step, the authentic and traditional Valencian Paella as the Valencians enjoy at home with family and friends.
The idea materialized by opening the first school in March 2014. As all solid projects, this has grew up slowly, becoming known constant and uninterruptedly gaining an excellent reputation by word of mouth, by the desinterested collaboration of traditional media and our great efforts in the new online media.
The outstanding reception of the initiative and the increasing demand led us to take the leap just two years after the beginning, in March 2016, by the opening of the second Escuela de Arroces y Paella Valenciana. More capacity and better facilities.
The secret of our success and the guarantee of quality for the customer is no other than counting with an excelent staff in our kitchen, truly passionate for their work and for the customer’s satisfaction. Our daily work is to provide you an unforgettable memory of your visit to Valencia.
As a result of this hard work, we can proudly say that we have reached more than 10,000 alumns have come back to their places of origin knowing what is an authentic Valencian Paella, becoming all of them true ambassadors of the Paella all around the world.
In November 2017 the school reached an sponsorship agreement with Arroz Dacsa, one of the best rice companies known around the world, that will help to go even further in the dissemination of the Valencian culture and gastronomy.
In January 2019, two important milestones in the history of the School took place. On the one hand, we reached a sponsorship agreement with the Vicente Gandía winery, an outstanding Valencian winery founded in 1885 and present in more than 90 countries on 5 continents.
And if this new step forward was not enough, in this same month of January the School of Rice and Paella Valenciana takes a big step in its growth by opening its new headquarters in Madrid. This new location is a window into the world that will allow Valencian culinary culture to reach new horizons.
