Distinctions

CAN ANY RESTAURANT BE ACKNOWLEDGED BY WIKIPAELLA?

Yes, whenever they offer a classic Valencian Paella, Arroz a Banda/Senyoret or Paella with rabbit and snails on their menus. However, only those establishments that cook their Paellas over firewood may be eligible for the "Cullera de Fusta" award.

CAN I PUT FORWARD A RESTAURANT AS A CANDIDATE?

Yes, if you are the owner of an establishment, or know of a place that deserves to be acknowledged, send us an e-mail and we will send an Inspector from Wikipaella to evaluate your request. You will be doing a great favour to the world of Paellas and lovers of traditional gastronomy.

WHAT CRITERIA IS FOLLOWED TO GRANT DISTINCTIONS?

- Compliance with the theoretical criteria in place regarding the use of ingredients and adherence to traditional Paella recipes.
- The cooking methods, taste, appearance and extras used when making the dishes.
- For restaurants, the elements that complete the dining experience and comprise part of a very specific ritual: being able to eat the Paella straight from the dish where it is cooked, with a wooden spoon, the premises’ ambience, etc.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN AWARDED?

No, a restaurant does not pay to be acknowledged, nor does it pay to receive the visit of Wikipaella’s Inspectors. In this manner, the project is wholly independent and has no commitments with anyone, only with the autistics Paellas and hostelry workers who handle them affection, whilst being honest with their customers.

¿CÓMO SÉ QUE HE SIDO GALARDONADO?

In the Wikipaella Gala held every year to notify the restaurants chosen.
