Authentic & Traditional Spanish Catering

As Seen in The Knot Magazine

The originator of the company, Juan Pomares (a native of Alicante in Spain), brought his Mamas Paella Recipe alive for us all to enjoy. Fondly known as “The Paella Man,” Juan and his family have created authentic, unique, and aromatic Paella experiences for many events in San Diego. Recently retired, Juan Pomares, is proud to announce that the next generation of Paella Chefs has arrived. His niece, Tanya Rodriguez “The Paella Lady,” now takes ownership of the business continuing to provide the same excellent food and service as always.

Chef Tanya was born and educated in San Diego, having attended the University of CA, San Diego. She has been trained and mentored by her uncle, Chef Juan, learning first-hand, her family's famous Paella Recipe. She continues to travel to Spain where she studies more and more about Spanish cuisine from her family.
