Sofrito cooks paella using the best traditional methods
Paella is a Spanish rice dish that includes different combinations of vegetables and meats, characteristically seasoned with saffron, but also has other spices depending on the recipe and area in Spain it comes from.
The dish Paella is said to to be a perfect union between 2 cultures from Spain, the Romans, for the pan and the Arab, that brought rice.
The Paella pan is characterised by being round with a flat bottom.
The pan can be anywhere from a LP record 12 inches in diameter to several feet. The one thing that doesn’t change is the height. It is about first joint in the thumb deep as the Spanish would say, so that the rice has maximum contact with the bottom of the pan.
This year, Sofrito cooks a French paella inspired by the south of France for all French food lovers. Do you know that in southern parts of France, called the French riviera, paella is cooked with saffron rice, fried chicken thighs, shrimp, calamari, mussels… It’s delicious, so come and taste this in East Circular Quay Village.
Bastille Festival, East Circular Quay Village in Sydney, 12,13, 14 and 15 July 2018.
