Searching for a Paella caterer for Nov. 08
You might want to contact Tinto Tapas (I think they're in West Hollywood) - I was at a gathering this summer that they catered - seem to recall that the various tapas were good and was very pleased with the paella that I tried - and they also offer desserts.
Tinto Tapas Espana
7511 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046
Credit for this recommendation goes to LA poster El Jeffe: (note - this place is located in San Diego but according to El Jeffe's post they will come up to the LA area to cater your event. Obviously you need to ask them upfront if they are still willing to travel north to do this)
I'm not sure if she's still around, but there was a fabulous woman at the Hollywood Farmers
Market for years. She had wonderful paella there, and also did parties at very reasonable prices. She's no longer at the market; I've been told her health was bad. But she was still catering at that time. I have a card somewhere, but I'm quite sure her business and website were called "Mama's Spanish Sauces."
