Mysteries of Authentic Paella Revealed by Valencian Chefs Reply

Paella over woodfire

Six great Paella master cooks from different areas of the Valencian Community, cook six different authentic paella recipes, including all necessary ingredients in the making of this icon of Spanish gastronomy. This project is just a sample of the multiple variations of Spain’s most international dish, always based on Valencian tradition.

Editor’s note: Two things strike us about these recipes: their extreme simplicity and the fact that none of them include any fish or seafood.

Anybody who follows this simple guide can make an authentic Valencian paella. So what are you waiting for?
