  • About

Paella is a family - even community - Spanish dish, originally eaten outside, cooked over hot coals on a paella, a wide, flat pan that allows plenty of surface contact with the heat, and the smoke to curl itself over the edge and imbue the rice with its magic. It is also traditionally cooked by the men of the household, a fact that some women resent, although smart women seem to think it is a damn good idea.
