Rica Paella en Taller Cocina Andaluz: Cooking Class II

First, the students heard an explanation about how tradicional Paella is not really seafood based.  Paella is a rice dish from the region of Valencia. Paella has ancient roots and is a dish of humble origins, but its modern form originated in the mid-19th century in the area around the Albufera lagoon on the east coast of Spain, adjacent to the city of Valencia. Valencian paella is believed to be the original recipe and consists of white rice, green beans, meat (rabbit or chicken), and seasonings such as saffron and rosemary. How´s that for a fun fact!

Now let´s taste the broth to make sure it is exactly as planned! Elizabeth, Gianlucca, Paige and Karina were the testers.
