Paella for a Crowd

Seafood Paella Simmering

What to make for a large group of people? How about a Paella. It's a one-pan meal with lots of different flavors and textures and the list of possible ingredients is endless. All that is required is rice with Calasparra or Bomba varities being considered the best; a good substitute is the standard risotto rice Arborio. The most common paella is Valencian from Valencia Spain, and it normally contains seafood and chicken with lots of aromatic saffron. I followed that same classic list of ingredients in mine tonight. I love all the colors and flavors and I think everybody else did too.
