Paella: Tradition in a Pan

Episode: CCSWL-102H

There's no dish more symbolic of Spain than paella, a saffron-flavored rice dish with meat or seafood. In this episode, Annie explores all aspects of this Sunday lunch dish that is cooked and served in one pan and is traditionally made by the man of the house. Annie travels to Valencia, Alicante and Barcelona to eat every type of paella she can get her hands on, including rabbit, pasta and seafood varieties; visits a family in La Mancha to pick saffron; visits the "Queen of Saffron," chef Maria Jose San Roman, at her restaurant in Alicante; and ends her journey in the style-driven city of Barcelona, where everything - including paella - is done with a twist.
