A two-day event entirely dedicated to paella.
Some of the best paella chefs around are on their way to Melbourne to put their skills to the ultimate test. Held over two days at the Queen Victoria Market, the Pacific semi finals of the Concurs Internacional de Paella Valenciana will see competitors cook up their finest Valencian paella for the chance to travel to Spain, where they'll battle it out for the title of greatest in the world.
In conjunction with the main event, the QVM is hosting a full blown paella festival, complete with stalls, food and even a creative paella cook-off. The latter contest, which kicks off at noon on Saturday, is open to professionals and passionate amateurs alike; if you think you've got what it takes you can register here. The victor gets all sorts of goodies including a $500 dinner at Simply Spanish, where your winning recipe will be featured on the menu for the month of May.
