Lots of culinary experts as well as home chefs are looking for the next new thing. For some, that’s going to be the classic Spanish dish called paella. Savory, sizzling in the pan, paella is a delicious offering that’s sure to please even the choosiest dining audience.
Look at how traditionally European dishes took off in American cuisine. First, arguably, there was pizza. How about the hot dog or frankfurter? Lately, we’ve been enjoying new trends – and American paella is something just right for the times, when people are trying to elevate food and bring a more sophisticated approach to food service, through local food, organic and other food movements.
Paella is a delicacy in the Spanish autonomous community of Valencia, where locals have been enjoying this tasty dish for centuries. Throughout many Spanish communities, paella is enjoyed as a top restaurant menu offering.
It’s a simple dish in some ways, but then, paella has its complexity and sophistication. Rice is something that has to be cooked just right – and having the different paella toppings involved with that same cooking process leads to some particular challenges.
Nevertheless, when you get the dish right, it’s simply amazing. This will rival any other kind of high-end international cuisine at the American table.
Good Ingredients and Good Accessories
Those who have experience working with paella will tell you that it’s important to have the right ingredients.
Trying to make paella with generic long-grain rice is often a disappointment. The traditional saffron rice is a big part of what makes the right result. Even the spices should be unique and authentically linked to the traditional recipe. Imagine trying to make paella with just salt and pepper…
Then there’s the stock and the proteins involved. Top-class ingredients provide that interesting and tasty dish that diners are going to crave.
Along with all of that, you want to have the best paella pans and accessories in order to enhance the cooking process. You don’t want your paella rice overdone – you want it just right. Having the traditional round steel pan with the handles helps to craft just the right paella. In addition to the visual presentation, it actually helps with even cooking and overall results.
