WHAT IS PAELLA (pronounced Pie-Eh-Ya)?
Paella is a Valencian rice dish that originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near Lake Albufera, a lagoon in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain. Many non-Spaniards view paella as Spain's national dish, but most Spaniards consider it to be a regional Valencian dish. Valencians, in turn, regard paella as one of their identifying symbols.
There are three widely known types of paella:
1. Valencian paella: white rice, green vegetables, meat (rabbit, chicken, duck), land snails, beans, and seasoning.
2. Seafood paella: white rice, seafood (mussels, squid, shrimp, octopus, fish, lobster, crab, etc.), and seasoning.
3. Mixed paella: a free-style combination of meat, seafood, vegetables, and sometimes beans.
