Spanish Paella Parties
Birthdays are celebrated, patron saints honored and Sunday outings made complete by the famous rice dish. Many call it paellera- the term comes from the Latin patella, a flat plate on which offerings were made to the gods. By the 16th century the Castilian word paella was being used for a vessel similar to the paella pan.

Paella Valenciana

Chorizo sausage and roasted chicken cooked in aromatic saffron rice.

Paella Rupestre

pork tenderloin, roasted chicken and lamb.

Paella Marinera
A Paella for seafood lovers, with lobster, mussels, clams, calamari, shrimp and
