  A brief history of the very famous Spanish dish Paella………………  
     

Valencian paella is a rice dish that originated in its modern form in the mid 19th century near lake Albufera, a lagoon in Valencia. On special occasions in the 18th centuryValencians used paelleras to cook rice from the rice feilds in Albufera in the open air of their orchards near the lake and added meat (chicken, rabbit, duck), snails, beans and vegetables.

On the Mediterranean coast, Valencians used seafood instead of meat and beans to make paella, Valencians regard this recipe as authentic as well. Later however Spaniards living outside of Valencia combined these two recipes and mixed paella was born.

During the 20th century paellas popularity spread past Spain’s borders, as other cultures set out to make paella the dish invariably acquired regional influences. Consequently paella recipes went from being relatively simple to including a wide variety of seafood, meat, sausage (even chorizo), vegetables and many different seasonings. However, Valencians insist only the original two (valencian & seafood) recipes are authentic, they generally view all others inferior!
