Juan, Spain
Born in Valencia, the hometown of paella, Juan is passionate about showcasing the region's rice dishes, paella being one of them and the most popular! He teaches what is often referred to as the original paella, a savory dish of short-grain rice cooked alongside chicken, rabbit and green beans. Juan has been cooking his whole life ever since he graduated from university. When living the bachelor life, he missed home cooking and learned to cook by asking his mother how to cook traditional Spanish dishes that he grew up eating. He worked as a civil servant in Madrid. After retiring, he moved to Almeria to be closer to his wife’s family. He and his wife live in an apartment that is a two-minute walk to the beach. He is enjoying the retired life - golfing, cooking and sharing home-cooked meals with friends and family.
