Local and internationally-renown chefs created their own version of the iconic Spanish paella during the 11th Annual Corona Paella Challenge on Sunday, March 8.
ILOVEACEITE got the 3rd place at the classical category with its version of 'Sip of sea'.
The event, which benefits Chef Johnny Hernandez's educational nonprofit Kitchen Campus, will challenge professional chefs and local high school culinary teams to prepare the best paella possible.
The international ILOVEACEITE team was directed by Fernando Ortega (Spain) with chef Mona Milani (USA), chef Juan Carlos Sastre (Spain) and chef Eder Muñiz (Mexico).
The 11th Annual Paella Challenge & 9th Annual H-E-B High School Paella Challenge are officially over! (I know we are sad too)
