One of Denver’s best Spanish restaurants is offering to make paella at your home for you and 30 to 75 of your closest friends.

Ultreia just introduced paella catering, a personalized party that involves a chef coming to your house or event and cooking the Spanish rice dish outside in a large pan in front of dozens of guests. (Smaller sizes can also be requested.)

For this service, the restaurant offers two types of paella: Valenciana (a mixture of meat, beans and seafood) or mariscos (with mussels, clams, shrimp, sea bass and scallops).

You can also add tapas to your meal, gin and tonics, a jamón carving station, even flamenco dancers and Spanish guitarists.

To just taste the paella without a whole catered shindig, head to the Union Station Farmers Market on Saturdays. Ultreia starts serving from its patio around 10:30 a.m. until the dish sells out.
