  2. If I want an Americanized paella, a Britishizied paella or any other kind of paella that isn’t real, traditional paella, I can make it myself. The thing is, I don’t. Spanish food in its original form, made the original way, Spanish, pure Spanish, old and traditional is what I want. Alegría! keeps those of us who want to stay connected to real Spain a great way to do it. Great blog, great info. ¡Viva Alegría!
