NATIONAL SPANISH PAELLA DAY

March 27th is the celebration of National Spanish Paella Day.  A rice dish from Spain, paella has become very popular and is known around the world.  It originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain.

At lunch time, workers in the fields would make the rice dish in a flat pan over a fire. They mixed in whatever they could find – such as rabbits, snails and vegetables. Later, for special occasions,  chicken was added.   Today paella has spread to every region of Spain, as well as worldwide, using almost any type of ingredient that goes well with rice.

There are many versions of recipes of paella.  A key ingredient is saffron and olive oil.  Saffron is an essential spice that also turns the rice a nice golden color.
