Juan was born and educated in Alicante region of Valencia in Spain, the mother and origin of the famous “paella” and was brought up understanding the correct way to cook an authentic delicious Paella. In the 70′s when very few people had even heard of Paella, Juan was introducing it to San Diegans. These days Juan finds himself cooking paella for wedding receptions for young people that had paella for their baptism, first communion or graduation parties.

“Our guests all raved about the food, even those who thought they didn’t like paella or had never heard of it. You also were reassuring every step of the way in the planning stages, which we greatly appreciated. Thank you for making our big 70th Birthday/Retirement Party so special.”
