La Tienda Paella Kit for Two
As the wife of a first generation American from Spain, more than once I’ve tried my hand at making (and sometimes failing at) the perfect paella.
A brightly hued rice dish from Spain, paella has become a signature and well sought-after dish, is known around the world for its unique flavors and saffron infused scent. It originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain. To make great paella, however, you need not only the correct rice and ingredients, but also a quality paella pan. Traditionally, paella pans are perforated carbon steel, preferred for their rapid heat conductivity, and also due in part to the influence that carbon steel can have on the flavor of the paella.
The only downside to a carbon-steel pan is that, like cast iron, it will require seasoning before and after uses. Find that perfect paella pan at La Tienda here, along with everything they’ll need to make one of Spain’s most romantic meals. Paella kits start at under $50.
