Paella is becoming more and more popular as a festive, gourmet and colorful dish. It originated in a coastal town of Southern Spain over 200 years ago. It is traditionally known as a rice dish with shellfish cooked in olive oil, saffron, tomatoes, onions and other great seasonings. Now throughout Spain it is becoming progressive to also put in a variety of ingredients to the host's or chef's liking. As long as the saffron, olive oil, rice and artistry is felt, Paella is left to the imagination.
