2018 Menu

Shrimp, Sausage, and Chicken Paella
Tender boneless chicken thighs, imported Spanish Chorizo, and succulent shrimp simmered with onions, garlic, tomatoes, saffron-infused rice, and topped with lemons and a variety of vegetables.
Just Veggies Paella
An abundance of fresh vegetables–squash, green beans, cauliflower, and mushrooms, for starters–simmered into a flavorful feast with saffron infused rice, tomatoes, artichokes, onions, lemons, and garlic.

Stan Halverson is passionate about paella. Outdoors, overlooking a vineyard, creating the perfect blend of enticing flavors to all the ooohs and ahhs—and yes, yays!—he remembered how he first fell in love with cooking and why. “Paella is undeniably delicious,” Stan says. “But it’s also a celebration, a form of entertainment and a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach—all in one pan (albeit a very, very large pan.) The crowd gathers around and watches while I cook. People ask questions. They want their pictures taken. It’s a lot of fun. And that’s all even before I serve it!”

Niiice riiice. Come taste how beautifully Stan’s creations pair with Barbera!
