For dessert: Chocolate Peanut Tacos. Add these recipes to your summer repertoire and stay cool with this delicious menu. (Hands-On)

Paella parties are the perfect way to entertain this summer. Join chef
Johnny Vee as he teaches the fine art and nuances of making this
tasty “One Dish Wonder.” We will make a traditional version chock
full of spicy chorizo, chicken, shrimp and clams- as well as a
vegetarian version that includes smoked artichokes and grilled
eggplant. Traditional tapas including Garlic Shrimp, and Manchego &
Membrillo will round out our menu as well as a rich Spanish Flan for dessert.
Join this celebration of Spain’s most famous dish. (Hands-On)
