Full Description
At Crocus Paella, we use only the finest Spanish ingredients and locally sourced produce to create very special and delicious paellas, which we cook from scratch in our authentic giant pans bringing the full Spanish experience to your wedding. We serve the paella to your guests, piping hot, straight from the pan. All our Paellas are gluten, dairy and nut free and what makes all types of our paellas special is we use one of the world's most intense and valuable varieties of saffron, Krokos Kozanis. And we combine a passion for food with a love of Spain, offering a truly unique and flexible service. We have been awarded with the the Healthy Choice Award, by Brighton & Hove City Council, which certifies that our business supports its customers by offering healthy food choices, based on healthy cooking methods and ingredients. Our recipes and experience come from our family background, who own a traditional restaurant in a small village near Alicante in Spain. We have learnt from the very best and we would love to bring a taste of Spain to your event!

What is your most memorable wedding?

We couldn't possibly pick just one. We have done so many beautiful weddings, from outdoor festival themed weddings with teepees, all the way through to gorgeous weddings in stately homes. Every single one is special in its own way and we are honoured to be able to take part and make a couples big day as joyous as possible.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Professional, colourful, relaxed, happy, authentic

What about your business are you most proud of?

The quality of our food. We pride ourselves on the quality ingredients we use to create the amazing paellas we present to couples on the day, combined with our expert, authentic cooking techniques which go into preparing the perfect paella.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy every moment of it! Planning this perfect milestone with a loved one is a truly special journey and you should enjoy every step of the way.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The one that stands out was a beautiful wedding where the bride and groom had a beautifully decorated room filled with flowers, props and polaroid cameras for the guests to use. It added a really nice informal touch to go along with the typical wedding photos. A great way to remember what a fun day your wedding should be!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once the couple have requested a quote we send through our options of 3 different Menus for them to choose from. Once they have decided we then work closely with them to plan the logistics of the day and go through any other requirement they may have. We try to make this process as easy as possible for our clients.

How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?

We think our paella definately has the wow factor. The sheer size of the pans are enough to create quite a stir. This together with the deep flavour of the saffron dyed rice is enough to win anyone over. Whether its succulent chicken, shell on seafood or juicy mushroom paella these dishes are sure to be a hit.

What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?

Paella negra with squid ink. If you think the usual deep yellow paella is a showstopper... this one is truly dramatic!

What is the food of love?

Paella is traditionally enjoyed by groups of friends or family, it is a food that is designed to bring people together and be shared by loved ones. We think paella is definately the food of love for this very reason. What a perfect dish for your big day when you are celebrating with your nearest and dearest.

What is your secret ingredient?

Our extremely high quality saffron; Krokos Kozanis. Greek saffron is considered one of the best varieties in the world, of excellent quality, aroma and colour.
