This incredible dish hails from Valencia, Spain, where it is considered both a specialty and a celebration of the union of cultures that produced it. Roman cookware was responsible for paella’s traditional wide, shallow pan, and Moorish influence improved rice production, leading to better grains. The result: a local and global favorite. Let’s take part in the tradition and make something truly special!
