Paella, what is it?Posted: September 25, 2011
This has been a recent request from a few people. I’ve never made paella and I don’t remember ever eating it before. Rice dishes, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts are a challenge to perfect.
However, I’ve made arroz con pollo (basic chicken and rice) often enough and I see a lot of similarities especially with the flavors and aromatics. I’m ready and willing to attempt this new dish and expand my repertoire!
I’m appealing to you all out there to help me with the following:
-locate and share an easy-to-follow, paella recipe that includes plenty of “spice” and
-point me to some of your favorite restaurants that specialize in paella
Also, any other info you can send regarding the “history” of paella to enlighten is welcomed.
Until then, I’ll work on facing my fear of cooking with rice…
