|1:40 AM in Valencia on a Monday night, and the
street party is still going strong – the crowd was
50 times this size, dancing flamenco, playing
guitar, singing and having a ball.
|Now that’s what I call a big paella! Invented in
Valencia, it has rice, garlic, onion, peas, carrots,
sometimes chicken, sausage, rabbit or seafood.
The magic ingredient is saffron, slender orange
threads that come from the crocus family.
