Seafood Paella, Chicken paella, vegetable paella, meat paella, lobster paella, mixed paella, Valencian paella,…There are so many varieties of paella, although purists may accuse me of heresy, that if I may say this famous dish allows as many ingredients and variations as there are chefs. The secret of good paella is to prepare it with love and dedication, to make a good paella base with quality ingredients and to cook the rice just right.
