If you’re someone who loves rice, then today’s your lucky day, because we’re about to discuss one of the most beloved and sacred rice dishes in the entire world—paella. If you’ve never been to Spain, it’s even more of a lucky day for you, because it means you have yet to have your mind blown by said dish in the place of its origin. So what is paella, and why is it so tasty?

Rice With a Twist

Paella is a simple dish, yet it offers so much subtlety that it’s quite easy to get it wrong. It’s essentially rice with a lot of tasty spices, such as garlic and onion, and often a protein such as chicken or fish. But even though it sounds simple, we would recommend looking up a proper recipe before attempting it.

Spain Does It Best

You can try to make it yourself, but the best version you’ll ever try is an authentic version in Spain. So next time you’re in Barcelona or Madrid, do yourself a favor and order yourself a steaming iron skillet of paella (that’s how they serve it there). You certainly won’t regret it, and you’ll come back for more!
