The Paella Today! crew challenges British chef Jamie Oliver to join the film set

The Paella Today! crew politely invited British chef Jamie Oliver to participate in the filming of this funny Mediterranean gastro-comedy. He was mailed a creative package that consisted of a 40 cm paella-ideal for two people-, information about the film and a letter in which he was courteously invited to join the set by playing himself in a brief cameo.

The film crew commented: “The idea was that Jamie Oliver get first-hand knowledge on the recipe for authentic paella, our most international dish, which, of course, has no chorizo as the renowned British chef published weeks ago, which triggered a gastronomic and media storm on social networks and national and international media. We thought it would be a nice gesture to de-dramatize this”.
