Some very dear friends of mine from Barcelona came to visit recently. We saw a paella being made out in the open and they were utterly appalled. After declaring it a crime against paella, rice, gastronomy and needing several drinks to recover they made me promise I'd do a special rice class to show London how to make some rice dishes.
The below dishes are not from Cataluyna. They are the three typical types of rice that are all well known in the region of Valencia.
We will make
My friend, Josep Maria's Mum's paella - paella mama Massita
arros al forn - rice in the oven
arros a banda - rice with fish and shellfish stock and the fish served seperately
we will also have some easy and quick starters and some wine to accompany the food.
The class has a maximum of 8 people in it and is completely hand on.
