Paella is the most popular and well known dish of Spain. It is a vibrant rice dish often cooked outdoors over an open flame. The passion and spirit of Spain are reflected in its food.
Celebrations and parties with family and friends is a great excuse to host a Paella Party!
The passion and spirit of Spain is reflected in its food. Paella’s origin is from Valencia where peasants working in the fields filled their paella pans with food from the Mediterranean coast as well as the fields to nourish themselves in a communal style while at work.
In Spain, Paella is a family affair. Families and friends gather around a bubbling pan filled with brilliant yellow rice and fragrances of bold spices of saffron, chorizo and succulent seafood or earthy roasted meats.

“The perfect pairing brings out the best in food, wine & friends!”
Paella is considered the signature dish from Spain. Originating in Valencia, the communal nature of this dish goes back to its origins where it began as a peasant food for the field workers who prepared it over an open fire. Today, community and family celebrations of all kinds are often centered around a large paella brimming with vibrantly tinted red-orange bomba rice and locally sourced vegetables with succulent meats, seafoods and mouthwatering aromas of spices.
As long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for cooking and eating paella. My Sicilian and North Delta Louisiana Heritage mixed with a touch of Cajun has inspired me to create an authentic paella with a Southern twist to share with friends and family. There are many varieties of paella and I encourage you to try recipes from different regions of Spain and pair with the many beautiful Spanish wines available to us today.
