Re: Paella recipes

My occasion to cook a paella arrived yesterday, but unfortunately not on board CC Rider, as the weather was cold and rainy and the cabin far too cramped for our party. But cook I did. I wanted to introduce my guests to paella with a mixed meat and sea food one. So, I grilled rabbit, shrimp and calamari and used authentic Spanish dry cured chorizo. Had to use Italian arborio rice as that was the closest variety to Spanish rice. I think it is probably very similar to bomba. I roasted red bell peppers and used green beans, the thin kind. And I used home made chicken stock. Pictures were made but I can't get them out of my iPad and into this post, but take my word for it, it was beautiful and tasted pretty darn good, though there are some improvements I can make with technique. Also, we bought the pan I used in Valencia in 1975, and it has given us many wonderful dishes, including an apple tart 14 inches in diameter, a beautiful thing to see and eat.
