Spanish Cooking – Paella! 25 October Afternoon

Last Thursday we had a Spanish Cooking day, with both our morning and afternoon classes having a turn in the kitchen 🙂


I did my research, looking at various different recipes for paella and then combining the most common ingredients from each into my own paella recipe. I was feeling pretty confident and was ready to impress the Spanish with my knowledge of their cuisine…

but sadly this was not the case! Despite 6 of the 10 recipes I looked at saying you put Spanish chorizo in, you in fact definitely do not put chorizo in a Spanish paella! You also do not put paprika in a Spanish paella, but should instead use saffron!

Despite it not being the paella they were quite expecting it was great to see the Spanish so passionate about one of their countries most popular dishes, and also learning from them the correct way to cook it! Next time I will definitely be asking them to check the recipe before I buy the ingredients!


Our Italian, Swiss, Czech, Belgian and Brazilian students that joined were happy to follow my recipe though and we ended up with what we thought was a delicious paella! However, the best response I got from our Spanish students was Rosario saying ‘it’s really nice tasting rice’!!


You can follow my recipe below for nice tasting rice, or ask one of our Spanish students for the proper way to make an authentic Spanish paella!


  • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 brown onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 red capsicum, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 chorizo, thinly sliced
  • 160g (1 cup) frozen peas, thawed
  • 500g marinara mix
  • 3 teaspoons paprika
  • 3 cups arborio rice
  • 800g can chopped Italian tomatoes
  • 4 cups Massel chicken style liquid stock
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped


  • Step 1

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add chorizo and onion. Stir for 2-3 minutes or until light golden. Add capsicum, garlic and paprika. Stir for 1 minute or until aromatic.

  • Step 2

Stir in the rice, tomatoes and chicken stock. Stir in the marinara mix. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes or until rice is tender and seafood is just cooked.

  • Step 3

Stir in the peas. Rest for 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

Sprinkle with parsley. Serve.

We enjoyed Spanish omelette; Cheese, prosciutto and olive pintxos; Prawns; Patatas bravas; Stuffed peppers; Pan Con Tomate; Chorizo and Olives!

Learn English in Byron Bay. Lexis English students study General English, IELTS, FCE, CAE and English plus Surfing in a friendly and professional school right in the heart of Byron Bay and only 15 minutes from the beach.

Living and Studying in Byron Bay – An interview with Santi!


Santi is from Valencia, Spain and has been at Lexis Byron Bay for 20 weeks, studying in the FCE and CAE classes.


Santi decided to study in Australia so that he could improve his English. He wanted to travel to a place far from home with good weather, beaches and surf. He has always wanted to visit Australia, so studying here was a natural choice!


When he first arrived in Australia, Santi spent the first month in Sydney before coming to Byron Bay. While he did really like Sydney, he prefers living in Byron Bay as he enjoys the relaxed travelers lifestyle here. It is an easy town to get to know, while still having many special places to discover and explore.


There are many things about Byron Bay that Santi believes makes this place so special. His favourite things are the beautiful beaches, feeling like you are living in nature all the time, and the good friends he has made here.


During his time here, Santi has held a job for 4 months working in a pizza place in the nearby town of Brunswick Heads. He felt that he was able to find a good balance with working after finishing school each day and that the work environment and his colleagues really helped him improve his English.


Santi recommends studying at Lexis Byron Bay, whether it is for just one month or for a whole year. He thinks the staff are great and says that the teachers are helpful, listen to the students and are very good at helping you to improve your English. When Santi first arrived in Australia, he had a difficult time understanding the Australian accent. Now, he feels that he has developed his English to an almost fluent level that he is very happy with.


After first studying in FCE and then moving up to CAE, Santi has found the classes to improve his English in all areas. While the exam format of these classes are similar, he found that CAE is at a more advanced level which has enabled him to expand his skills in speaking, grammar and vocabulary. In both classes he has enjoyed the learning environment and said the teachers are fantastic. 12834493_10156565703920612_1100447175_n

Santi believes Byron Bay is such a unique place even compared to other places in Australia. There is always something happening in town, from the variety of live music to the great waves and good  surf at the beaches. The feeling Santi gets from Byron Bay is very special, including from all the nice people both living here and travelling through.


After Santi completes his studies at Lexis Byron Bay in two weeks time, he will travel to Sydney for two days before flying to Bali to meet up with some other Lexis friends there. When he returns to Spain, he plans to study International Business at University. For this he believes his level of English will be very helpful in the future.



Learn English in Byron Bay. Lexis English students study General English, IELTS, FCE, CAE and English plus Surfing in a friendly and professional school right in the heart of Byron Bay and only 15 minutes from the beach.
