HISTORY

Paella is traditionally cooked outdoors over an open flame, which gives it a slightly smoky flavor and a crispy crust on the bottom of the pan called “socarrat.” It is typically served family-style, with everyone eating from the same pan. Paella is a popular dish throughout Spain and is enjoyed by people all over the world.
