  • Relax! We’ll also bring along and are happy to provide all the serving dishes too. Just show us where you’d like us to lay everything out.
  • You and your guests will savour the mouth-watering aromas gently filling the room, and the feast to come, beautifully laid out on the serving tables.

Why Auténtico?

We are a family run business cooking traditional recipes handed down
over 3 generations, using authentic ingredients such as the very finest rice, spices and Extra Virgin olive oil that we source from Spain and Cyprus.

To the best of our knowledge, we are a first because we are the only company in the UK that will deliver a freshly cooked authentic Spanish
Paella in its pan to your home, office or to your place of choice.

From the originality of our family’s secret recipes, to the unrivalled
tastes, flavours and aromas to the traditional fresh ingredients we use, no Spanish or Greek Cypriot dining experience compares with Auténtico.

Traditional Auténtico

Jorge’s cooking originates from the northwest of Spain in the region of Castilla y Leon – more specifically in the Bierzo valley area where his Grandmother Maria Alvarez Fernandez was a cook by profession.

Melani was born to Greek Cypriot parents who ran a restaurant in Edgware well known for its authentic Greek Cypriot cooking. They met and sharing their passion for food and cooking, fell in love and married.

Together, they enjoyed learning how to prepare and cook traditional Greek Cypriot barbequed food and mezes to add to Jorge’ s growing expertise around his Grandmother’s wonderful Spanish Paella, Tapas and other home recipes.

Over the years, they practised and refined their culinary skills, bringing fabulous feasts of authentic Mediterranean cooking into the homes and lives of their family and friends.

Now, as Auténtico, they proudly bring all those years of experience and passion for Spanish and Greek Cypriot food to you.
Just say the word.
