Paella (almost) original

A while ago I posted about the differences between the Spanish Paella and the Italian Risotto (read my post here) and I promised I would also share my Paella recipe. So here we come to my personal interpretation of this Spanish Flagship food, which is popular all around the globe and appreciated pretty much by all.

Paella Vs. Risotto. What’s best?

As far as food is concerned, there are several similarities in the food tradition of Italy and Spain: we both use olive oil rather than butter, we both make large use of tomato sauce, onions and the aromatic herbs of the mediterranean basin. Some local products are also very smiliar such as the Spanish Jamon (Serrano and Iberico) and the Italian Prosciutto Crudo (Parma and San Daniele being the most popular, although an immense variety is available).
