We’re passionate about paella and we specialise in authentic tapas and paella catering for every occasion: weddings, parties and events. We’ve been cooking Spanish food for over 10 years at our beautiful Finca Los Chispos in Murcia where we cook our paellas over wood from the orange and lemon orchard.
Our ethos is simple – we use the freshest, finest produce in all our paella catering. Ingredients always come first with us: our fresh produce is from local, ethical suppliers; our rice from the Calasparra region of Murcia; and our sweet paprika gets its deep flavour from smoking the capsicums over oak fires.
“ Vamos Paella catered for 85 guests at my husbands’ 50th birthday party, with a vegetarian and traditional Valencian option – both absolutely delicious. Everyone loved it and having paella cooked on site managed to be both delightfully informal but very special.”- Catherine Rogers, Henfield
The choice of going with Melissa, and Vamos Paella was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding day preparations. She catered effortlessly for 100 people, cooking a fantastic selection of three of her paellas, salads and breads. The verdict from friends was a unanimous ‘delicious’. - Robert and Marian, Sussex
“Vamos Paella cooked a fabulous paella on our snow-covered deck and turned our Christmas party into a great fiesta. Friendly staff made the paella a real focal point. Highly recommend them for a paella party!” - Kat, Brighton
Our catering works well for all sorts of paella party: weddings, garden parties, anniversaries, fundraisers and corporate parties. We offer a choice of set menus which range from a three course sit-down meal to a more informal buffet; we can cater for your wedding guests with a traditional wedding breakfast or offer your party-goers more of a street food experience.
We use authentic Spanish recipes for our paellas: chicken cooked in oloroso sherry from Cadiz; black rice in squid ink from Valencia; rabbit and almond and rosemary paella from Murcia; as well as the more typical paella Valenciana. We also offer an exciting range of hot and cold tapas; our cold tapas are perfect as wedding canapés or finger food, while the hot tapas are a great first course.

Cooking paella isn’t just about the food; it’s a spectacular party piece and a great communal dish. You can count on us to create a mouth-watering culinary experience for your paella party as we cook up giant pans of delicious paella to serve to your guests, piping hot straight from the pan.
