Big Food S1 Ep. 1: Spain, Getxo International Paella Competition

2016 • 28 mins

Every year 30,000 people flock to Getxo in Northern Spain for one of the oldest and most prestigious paella contests in the world. This year, Greta is there to see if chefs from Singapore's Papito's restaurant can beat the Spanish at their own national dish! The PasarBella market traders won the Oceania International Championship in Australia but in Spain the competition will be much bigger. 160 competing teams will cook over 300 kilograms of rice and burn 7,000kg of firewood. It's a trial by fire for the Singapore team!
