The Velencian people of Spain have created a wonderful day to celebrate the Paella. We honour the Paella and help to show everyone when done well, this dish can be simply amazing.
Please help us celebrate by making your own or just enjoying ours at a market this weekend.
"Arroz (rice) is an Arabic word. Rice was introduced to Spain by the Moors over 1200 years ago.
Paella was used as a humble dish to feed labourers and farmers. They would mix in whatever they could find, chicken, rabbit, snails and vegies. It was cooked on an open fire and eaten straight from the pan.
The farming of Rice began to flourish in Valencia with many different varieties grown. The towns nearest to the coast began to experiment with Adding Seafood."
We cook all types of Paella and understand the spirit of our humble dish. If we see some great vegies at a farmers market we will add it to our Paella. You might even see us putting kale in our Vegan Paella, and we can’t wait for Artichoke season!
