From the Author
First, because it contains the traditional cooking that I always had at home. I remember my mom cooking these dishes at home since I was a kid. Some dishes were cooked during week days, like Baked Rice (more humble and affordable meal), some others on most of the Sundays and special occasions, like Valencian Paella, or mainly during summer holidays, like Seafood Paella.
These are the exact ways the different Paella variations are traditionally cooked in Valencia (Spain) and its surrounding counties.
Second, because of the quality time I spent with my mom writing them down and trying to tell the story behind each recipe. I liked how enthusiastic she was about it. For her, Internet is an unknown world and, knowing that her recipes could be reached from anywhere in the Planet she was really excited.
If you are interested in traditions and cooking, with some interest and patience you can taste at home the flavor of Paella as it's cooked at the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Wishing you to enjoy the good family time I had around these meals.
