March 27th is the annual observance of National Spanish Paella Day. A rice dish from Spain, paella has become very popular and is known worldwide. It originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain.

At lunchtime, workers in the fields would make the rice dish in a flat pan over a fire. They mixed in whatever they could find – such as rabbits, snails, and vegetables. Later, for special occasions, chicken was added. Paella has spread to every region of Spain and worldwide, using almost any type of ingredient that goes well with rice.

There are many versions of recipes of paella. Key ingredients are saffron and olive oil. Saffron is an essential spice that also turns the rice into a beautiful golden color.

HOW TO OBSERVE #SpanishPaellaDay

I've always enjoyed paella, especially the seafood based ones. Have never tried it with chicken but might do so in the near future.

    My mom is from Colombia and Paella is a big dish down there. When we make it up here it’s usually a fun all day event where everyone brings an ingredient to throw in and takes part in the cooking. I’m not a huge fan of the dish, but it’s a good time.
