A culinary story to remember...

The History of Paella

Can you imagine traveling far away to a place filled with great history and tasty cuisine? 

Spain is one of those places where the food is rich with history and family bonds. My grandma's mother was from Spain. I was curious if I had some of that Spanish blood in me because every time I heard Spanish guitar playing I couldn't stop my feet from dancing and screaming out "Olé, Olé, Olé".

When I traveled to Barcelona. I fell in love with everything; food, wine, culture, history, people, clothes, the list goes on and on. But the Paella really caught my attention how they cooked it, the aromas, the spices, and the fresh ingredients.

Every Paella is unique to the home or professional cook’s dining preferences. Served with a traditional Spanish wine makes the experience a true "Taste of Spain".

History of Paella

Paella is a traditional Spanish dish from the Valencia region. The meaning of Paella differs between regions.

There are many folk tales of how paella came to be. Some say Paella came from the word “Patella” meaning frying pan.

Another romantic folklore, when Spanish men combined rice and leftovers into a frying pan for their wives it was termed "Para Ella" meaning "for her".
