About the Dish

Paella is native to Spain, more specifically to Valencia, and it is considered a national dish. Traditionally, this rice dish is roasted over an open flame in a specialized shallow paella pan.

There are several classic and official variations of paella, along with endless interpretations on these classics, though the dish will almost always have saffron and garlic as the main flavorings. Saffron is derived from the saffron crocus flower. It can be identified in food by contributing a yellow-orange coloring and a mildly sweet, hay-like flavor.
