Traditional Valencian Paella recipe- Paella Valenciana – Spanish recipes
Paella is the greatest symbol of Valencian cuisine and probably Spanish gastronomy as well, famed throughout the world. Its origin, like all humble dishes, comes from the combination of ingredients readily available to families, especially from the Valencian countryside, which provided fresh vegetables.
It was also common for families to raise their own chickens and breed rabbits, and so given the abundance in which rice crops are grown in La Albufera, the result is this authentic Valencian dish named after the pan in which it is cooked.
