David pays homage to the great national dish of Spain, the greatest
Mediterranean rice, fish and shellfish dish. There are hundreds
of versions, from: Alicante, Murcia, Malaga and Cadiz - to Barcelona
and of course, most famous of all: Valencia.
We have tried to capture something of the spirit
Spain in this version - try it yourself - you won't be disappointed.
And don't be put off by the number of ingredients - it's really quite
and the results make the effort worthwhile.
It should be the culmination of a whole day of
relaxation, drinking, talking and eating. A labour of love, to be
presented with a flourish.
