From the owner: " I know you have many choices when choosing a wedding caterer. Why choose Paella Time? Simply put - WE ARE THE BEST. I'm a classically PAELLA IS OUR SPECIALTY. Don't be fooled by other caterers claiming they make real paella. Years ago I learned the art of making AUTHENTIC paella from a true paella chef from Spain using his family's recipes passed from generation to generation. I use only the FRESHEST ingredients in my paella which is cooked in a REAL saffron stock prepared the same morning (many other "paella" caterers do not use saffron or make a fresh stock instead using using powders or concentrates). All of my tapas and desserts are made by hand from scratch following the same family recipes."

We also cater rehearsals and engagement parties, private in-home parties (birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, etc...), corporate events, holiday parties, and more.

    Couldn't go to Spain, so Paella Time brought it to us!

    We met in Spain, and knew we wanted paella. Paella Time gave us an easy one stop solution providing all the plates, silverware, glasses, linens. Our wonderful venue, Piedmont Community Hall, provided the table & chairs, and the Paella Time crew took care of the rest. The tapas and paella brought us back to Spain. Everything was so delicious. Couldn't be happier. Thank you, Tiffany, Ralph, Chef Daniel, and staff. We know some of our guests have already mentioned contacting you!
