Paella is one of the world’s great rice dishes. It was first created in Valencia, a region on the East coast of Spain, and was originally cooked over a fire in the fields as a communal lunch for agricultural workers.

The dish has evolved over the centuries—the original paella had no conventional meat or seafood, but was made with the more affordable snails!

Paella has become a great party dish. Not only do the current ingredients—chorizo, chicken, seafood and other proteins—make it a delicious and fun main course, but it makes a great buffet centerpiece for parties.

Celebrate National Paella Day on March 27th. Enjoy the history of paella and a paella recipe and then plan a party or a large family gathering.
