Blog Memories: Make Paella This Weekend!

If you're planning a late summer party, why not prepare a fabulous paella that's brimming with tender chicken, pork, seafood and vegetables? This paella recipe will have all your dinner guests coming back for seconds. Enjoy this encore blog posting. It originally ran on August 23, 2013.

In a recent blog, I mentioned that my guests and I feasted on an incredibly delicious paella while vacationing at Skylands, my home in Maine. I thought it would be fun to show you a step-by-step of the process. For even cooking, it's important to use a traditional paella pan, which is round and flat with shallow sides. I purchased the giant one in these photos at an amazing store in the Soho section of Manhattan called DespaƱa, which offers the finest products from Spain. Another place I like to shop for Spanish products and ingredients is La Tienda.
