Cooking for Friends

With a tenacious eye, Richard began watching chefs in Hawaii as they prepared pigs for traditional Luaus. The allure of the banquet sized paella pan for up to 200 guests enables everyone to enjoy his superb culinary treats.

As a personal chef, I specialize in recreating authentic, vegan, gluten free paella. My pleasure is to keep paella coming to your table for your parties. No job is ever too big, or too small, too near or too far. Please contact me for more information or to book a date. ~ Richard

Coastside Buzz Mission and Goals

Infinite Content ~ Coastside Buzz is a website on the internet. You can tell a story by article/photo-essay, podcast and video. The story can be as long as it has to be.
“To Give You a Voice, in Your Own Words ​” ~ Support local content that is not editorialized, and aims for original sources as often as possible. Submit your own content.  Produce free (if you know how) or low-cost content (if you need help), whether via articles (photo-essays), podcasts and/or videos.
Stories are no longer constrained by physical space like newspapers and radio. On Coastside Buzz every story gets its own infinite web page. That means infinite space for a story which can be an article, a podcast, a video, or all three. Tell your story, the way you want to tell it. Come play and help us produce great local content.

Free Self-Submit Coastside Buzz Calendar​ ~ Access 24/7/365 from any device. Find all the live music, community events, government meetings, senior activities and foodie specials happening on the Coastside. Missing something? It's FREE and self-submit...Go!
