I attended a few cooking classes in Barcelona. I believe Cook and Taste was the best one.
I used it a few times already.....
Here is the recipe for perfect paella recipe. I changed the recipe from Cook and Taste Cooking School little...
PAELLA DE MARISCO (seafood paella)
Ingredients (4 servings)
2 Squids (or cuttlefish) -cleaned and cut into rings
1 Pound total of Clams and / or Mussels
2 or 3 cloves of Garlic - peeled and crushed
1 Tomato. - peeled and minced
6 Tablespoons of olives oil (not virgin)
1 Pound of Bomba rice ( or non-sticky short grain rice)
4 1/2 cup of fish stock
Heat the oil in the pan and fry the prawns until slightly browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add the tomato in the same hot oil and fry them till they become one over low heat (20 minuets) Add garlic and fry some more. Add saffron.
Stir in the stock and bring it to a boil. Add the rice and distribute it evenly. RICE CAN'T BE TOUCHED beyond the point! Cook it over medium heat.
Put All the seafood including prawns on top nicely.
Cook it over medium heat for 8 minutes rotating and swirling the pan to distribute the heat evenly. Reduce heat to minimum and cook 10 more minutes.
Let it stand for about 5 minutes covered with foil before serving.
Very nice! I'm currently in Barcelona as well and just learned how to make paella. Where did you get your paella pan? I'd love to buy one while I'm here but I don't quite know where to look.
Sorry I cannot remember the name of the store but I bought Paelleras El Cid pans (traditional steel version) from local cookware / hardware store in Barcelona.
