Paella: Rice With Everything

Paella: Rice With Everything

Derek Workman of Smithsonian.com says “The subtleties of preparation, the exact timing of when to add water and for how long it should lie before being served are the subject of fierce debate.
The menu fixed to the restaurant wall in front of me proudly offers 176 rice dishes. The first question that springs to mind is: “How?” Followed rapidly by: “Why?” How can you possibly prepare that number of dishes using the same main ingredient, and why on earth would you want to do so, anyway? But this is Valencia, on Spain’s eastern seaboard; they take their rice seriously hereabouts.”
