Origins of Paella

Paella is indisputably a Valencian dish from Eastern Spain and was initially created as a meal for farmers and laborers working in the rice fields. A large metal pan heated over a wood fire would be used to cook the paella. Valencian rice is a primary ingredient, but whatever else was on hand would go into the pot as well. Snails, tomatoes, onions, and beans would add flavor and texture. Meats such as duck, rabbit, and chicken would also be added if they were available, and saffron provided both flavor and color. Paella was most often consumed straight from the pan, with each person using their own wooden spoon.

The Spread of Valencian Rice

The spread of Valencian rice could be considered the driving force behind paella's popularity. As it became readily available in more areas, paella spread with it. When the dish made its way to seaside villages, it's no surprise that seafood variations of paella became the flavor of the day. All types of fish and other seafood were added to the rice to create even more varieties of paella.

What's in a Name?

Paella or la paella is the name for the dish the food is cooked in, not the dish itself - which is a little odd. It's an old Valencian word possibly related to the Latin word for pan, 'patella.' Other theories about the name stem from a romantic myth of a lover preparing a meal for his beloved fiancée. It is thought that paella may come from a corruption of the words ‘para ella,’ which mean 'for her' in Spanish. The myth has some credibility, as Spanish women traditionally did most of the cooking. However, cooking paella in Spain is usually a job for the men, in a similar fashion to how it's considered the man's job to cook the meat at an American BBQ.
