Vamos Paella was set up by Melissa in 2011, and is now run by Chan and Dan. After years of living and travelling in Spain, we decided to become paella caterers in the UK.
We’ve been cooking Spanish food for over 10 years at our beautiful Finca Los Chispos in Murcia where we cook paella over wood from the orange and lemon trees.
One October morning our first consignment of paelleros arrived on a palate from Valencia and Vamos Paella was born and we haven’t looked back.
Our ethos is simple: to use the finest, fresh produce from local ethical suppliers.
Our free range chickens come from family-run butchers and our seafood from our coast.
We source our Spanish ingredients from Brindisa in Borough Market: our cured meats – jamon, chorizo, salchichon and lomo – and Manchego cheese; Calasparra rice; saffron; ñoras; pimenton dulce; olive oil.
Sylvia Lamb: 'Vamos Paella catered for my 60th birthday party which was at home with around 75 people. All the guests were full of praise not only for the three delicious paellas but also for Kathryn and Luis who were helpful and friendly.
A number of guests took Vamos Paella business cards; all repeat business will be very well deserved. I highly recommend Vamos Paella; it made my party even more special.'
