I went to an event at the lovely Villa Roma Italian-Argentinean cuisine in Laguna Hills to learn all about the upcoming Paella Wine and Beer festival coming for the first time ever to Orange County. This event usually takes place every year in San Diego and Los Angeles and it has now been expanded to have a day here in Orange County as well at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa. The event will take place on Saturday, August 26th! 🙂

As we gathered at Villa Roma to learn all of the details of the upcoming festival, we had a chance to meet executive Chef Leo Razo, as he prepared for us his famous paella! This dish he prepared for us was a precursor to the amazing dish to come at the upcoming Paella Festival next Saturday!
At the event, there will also be a record set with the largest paella ever made in the United States, enough to feed 3,000 people, prepared by Chef Leo Razo of Villa Roma in Laguna Hills. See some of my awesome photos below of delicious tastings at Villa Roma as well as photos of Chef Leo and his paella!
At the Paella Wine & Beer Festival, there will be nearly 50 local chefs to compete for a spot at the World Paella Championship in Spain! The event will take place from 4-9 p.m. These local chefs will compete with their own paella recipes for the chance to represent the United States at the World Paella Championship in Sueca, Valencia, Spain. Event entry includes unlimited wine, beer and paella and features an experience reflecting what one would find while strolling through a lively outdoor market in Spain. There will be live entertainment including Flamenco performances and Spanish rock, and local vendors will offer tapas, sangrias, cocktails, cultural art, and much more.
“We’re thrilled to bring this exciting celebration of Spanish culture and cuisine to Orange County, where close to 50 local chefs will create more than 80 different kinds of paella for attendees to enjoy along with unlimited wine and beer,” said Armando Rodiel, CEO & Founder of the Paella Wine & Beer Festival. “The stakes are high for the participating chefs, with the winning team securing a spot at the prestigious World Paella Championship in Spain next month to compete with nine other countries. So, bring your appetites and we’ll provide everything needed for a spectacular evening!”
The festival will be held at 88 Fair Dr., Costa Mesa, CA 92626 from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Saturday, August 26. Tickets start at $50 and include unlimited paella, wine and beer.
