Saturday, May 13th was A Taste of Spain, an event in South Park––but this was more than an event: it was an unique experience! San Diego's 3rd Annual Paella, Wine, and Beer Festival took place at Embarcadero Marina South Park, where it transported guests from the sunny seaside to a corner of Spain. Sixty Paella teams competed to be the best in the Cali-Baja region. The event featured lots of tastings the most unique sangrias in all of Southern California. Everybody enjoyed the event's live music with flamenco and Spanish rock music styles prominently featured.
Paella 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.
