Paella Catering Services in the Washington DC Metropolitan area
Spain's most famous dish is now available... to go!
"Paella" is a typical Spanish dish and it is traditionally cooked in a "Paellera" (a round flat pan with two handles on opposites sides). During the centuries following the establishment of rice in Spain, the peasants of Valencia would use these pans to cook rice with tomatoes, onions, and a variety of vegetables available from the countryside. As the paella evolved, chicken, fish, seafood, pork, and rabbit were introduced making it one of the most traditional dishes in all of Spain. While many regions pride themselves with the "typical" paella, no one can dispute that its origin is from Valencia.
Valencia, with the Mediterranean Sea at its doorsteps is one of Spain's biggest and liveliest cities. First and foremost known as the city of "El Cid," Spain's national hero who fought against the Moores, it maintains an authentic culture, full of festivals and small villages that are both picturesque and familiar.
