Widely acclaimed as the most popular Spanish dish, paella combines saffron-flavored rice with a wide array of additional ingredients, such as seafood, vegetables, or meat. Although the original paella was created in Valencia, where it was made with seasonal vegetables, poultry, and rabbit, in modern-day Spain the name is used to denote all rice dishes prepared in a paellera or paella - the traditional shallow pan. 

The exact additional ingredients used in paella have long been a matter of dispute, but what everyone agrees on is that each paella should have a crispy, caramelized bottom and a subtle saffron flavor. Always served in the pan, this Spanish classic can be found everywhere in the country, in an endless number of combinations.
