On our first date, Pablo spied the underused paella pan in my kitchen and suggested we make one together. Valencia-style with rabbit and snails. No fan of bunny, but intrigued by the dish and the man, I said yes.
Our fourth date became a dinner party when I invited a few of my favorite people to join us. In preparation for the feast, Pablo and I searched lower Manhattan for bomba rice, pimentón dulce, and other essentials. He did the heavy lifting while I acted as sous chef. The gathering extended well into the night with each guest leaving satiated and just tipsy enough. We were onto something.
Although many years have passed since "paella night," Pablo and I approach every meal we make with the same spirit of adventure and spontaneity. de Porres is not just a culinary journey from Lima to Louisville; it's the art of conviviality. It is making a new friend over candlelight. We look forward to you joining our table or to us bringing our flavors to yours.
