The 3rd Annual Paella, Wine & Beer Festival is a celebration of Paella – a dish that comes to us from Spain, with origins dating back to the eighteenth century. It is a saffron-infused rice dish that marries bold flavors and delightful textures. Combined with a variety of meats, shellfish and vegetables, paella was originally a peasant’s meal cooked over an open fire in the fields and eaten directly from the pan using wooden spoons. The dish takes its name from the wide shallow pan that it is cooked in, traditionally called the paella or paellera. The recipe commonly known as paella can more accurately be referred to as Arroz a la Paella (rice done in paella-style). Today, paella recipes have become somewhat of an art form – ranging from decadent meats and seafoods to vegan and vegetarian.
