May 23, 2011
New York, NY

Experience Spanish cuisine at its finest by joining us for the 3rd Annual El Coto De Rioja Paella Parade in NYC on Monday, May 23rd, 2011.

This friendly competition between talented chefs with a passion for the traditional Spanish dish is an event that is enjoyed by all. If the promises of tasting savory paella and a brilliant water view are not enough, do note that the dishes are paired with the wines of El Coto De Rioja, imported by Frederick Wildman & Sons.

Participants in this cook-off competition will be showcasing their unique renditions of the dish in hopes of being crowned victorious by an esteemed judges’ panel in categories comprising "Most Creative Paella," "Best Use of Ingredients in a Paella" and "Best Overall Taste." The top honor is the crowd's choice: the "El Coto de Rioja Paella Parade Pleaser".
