Adriana Morera was trained to make paellas in Valencia, Spain, where the dish originated, but every so often she pops up around L.A. to serve her authentic Spanish dish at an event called the Paella Project.

Morera makes the paella in traditional cast iron paelleras pans, bringing along tapas and desserts like her lovely tres leches flan to accompany the meal. Though it's traditionally eaten as a family-style meal made by men on Sundays, this Wednesday the young female chef will be hosting her paella pop-up at 55 Degrees Wine Bar.

Morera's events at the wine bar are always convivial and communal, and are a must-do for L.A. food fans, especially if you need a glass of vino to take the edge off hump day.

The tapas ($5) portion of the evening will begin at 55 Degrees' cellar at 6 p.m. Paella ($10-13) will be served from 7:30-9 p.m., and they usually sell out, so arrive early.
