Paella is a quintessentially Spanish rice dish that is thought to have originated in the Valencia region of Spain.

Rice and Saffron

The dish is typically made of rice, different kinds of beans, and meat. It is flavored with saffron, paprika, and other spices and herbs.

Different Types

At least two different versions of the dish exist. Seafood paella replaces the beans and the meat, which is usually chicken, rabbit, or snails, with seafood. Common seafood additions to the seafood paella are lobster, mussels, and shrimp. Mixed paella, on the other hand, includes both meat and seafood.

Special Pan

Paella is usually cooked over an open fire in a large shallow steel pan with two handles, also called paella. Tradition has it that diners must eat directly out of the pan.

How to Celebrate?

  • With some paella, of course! Whip up a batch at home or visit your local Spanish restaurant to enjoy this delicious rice dish.
  • If you have always wanted to visit Spain, what better excuse to book your next vacation to the country and sample some local paella?

Did You Know…

…that the paella comes from the Latin word patella, meaning pan?
