Ladypaella Recipes

Moroccan Chickpea Stew

This dish is one of my favourites, but not for the faint hearted as it packs a punch full of ginger and garlic. The fusion of flavours is incredible and so healthy.

Ladypaella Roast

Mediterranean Roast Vegetables

This dish is a staple at my house and the kids complain when they see me making it with ‘Oh no, more vegetables!’. However, once they are cooked, they fight over the last bits, especially the juice left at the bottom of the tray.

Memories in Isolation

Countless years of running a catering company, taking bookings, searching for that perfect market or festival.  Providing Spanish Catering in Melbourne for Weddings, Birthdays, Christmas functions and Schools. Even cooking for Paul Kelly, and the Hawthorn football Club when they won those premierships.

It seems as if we have cooked everywhere in Victoria. Lots of memories of beautiful sunsets and amazing locations and also Victorias crazy weather. 

We all hope to see everyone back at the markets and back to celebrating life. We will be back to work as soon as this Pandemic is done and dusted.  


Victorian Food industry

To our Foodie Friends.

After 15 years in the market and festival scene supplying Spanish Catering in Melbourne, and a further 12 years in restaurants we have never before experienced a complete shutdown of our industry.  If anything, we can all get perspective of how amazing our lives had been before the “Virus”.  

We are a resilient industry and very creative. We will hibernate but we all will be back once this is over, bigger and better. 

To all our Market Family’s out there be safe and hold on.
