Auténtico Catering

About Auténtico

We’re a family run business cooking traditional recipes handed down over 3 generations, using ingredients such as the very finest rice, spices and Extra Virgin olive oil sourced in Spain and Cyprus.

To the best of our knowledge we’re the only company in the UK that will deliver an authentic Spanish Paella in its pan to your home or your office.


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.
