Reconnect With Friends and Family Around a Homemade Paella

Cooking the iconic Spanish rice dish is a communal experience, and has been for hundreds of years. It’s also a delicacy that’s easy to customize and tweak based on dietary restrictions or personal taste; I’ve made dozens over the years, and don’t think I’ve used the same combination of ingredients twice. History of Paella While paella can now come in many forms and encompass any number of different ingredient combinations, there’s little doubt that the dish originated around the Spanish city of Valencia. The region was the largest rice producer in Spain after the Moors introduced the grain in the early 700s AD, and that abundance provided the raw materials for this infinitely customizable meal.

Tahdig. How to Make Tahdig If you like crackly pan scraps, have an appetite for anything extra crispy, or if you prefer your food more darkly tanned than pale, then you must try making tahdig (pronounced tah-DEEG).
