About the Chef
Chef Aayon has many years of culinary experience, that include such restaurants as Jaleo, in Washington DC. In 2018, Chef Aayon was awarded first place at the Annual Paella Cook-off Festival in Plainfield, New Jersey.
According to food historian Lourdes March, paella “symbolizes the union and heritage of two important cultures, the Roman, which gives us the utensil and the Arab which brought us the basic food of humanity for centuries.” And while paella originates in Spain, it’s now enjoyed globally — particularly often in many South American countries. Paella often contains seafood, saffron, garlic, tomatoes, broth, oil, and paprika; it sometimes includes peppers, onions, carrots, and celery.
