Lisa Mays was an avid food and wine blogger
and frequent commenter here at Bites before she moved away to the Hill Country near Austin for a year. Now she's back in town with a new business, paella parties
. Now I haven't found a good paella in Nashville since Zola's closed, so I'm enthused about the idea of Lisa bringing her monster-sized paella pan to my house (or even better, somebody else's so I don't have to clean up) and mixing up a big batch of that seafood-rich Spanish treat while teaching all about the history and preparation of paella. She'll even leave you with the recipe.
If this intrigues you, Lisa is planning an event at Natchez Hills Vineyard this Sunday, July 28, starting at 3 p.m. For just $20, you'll get to sample the wines of Natchez Hills and enjoy a shrimp, mussels, chicken, clams and chorizo paella. That sounds like a heck of a bargain to me and worth the hour-and-a-quarter drive from downtown Nashville.
The cost is $20 per person plus tax, and seats are limited. Call the winery at 931-285-2500 or go to the website to reserve your spot.
