All these tips are valid for any paella recipe & not just paella valenciana.

  • You want to make authentic? So serve your paella at the table with wooden spoons, and without plates!
    In Valencia, everyone eats normally in the paella!
  • Do not stir with metal spoons, use as much as possible wooden utensils.
  • Make sure you have your rice in the paella only when the water is boiling.
  • NEVER cover a paella while cooking!
    It is advised when everything is finished, during its rest period and only if your rice misses some cooking.
  • The rest of the paella, once cooked, is important, so wait at least 5 minutes before serving.
  • The cooking time of the rice varies depending on the type of rice, so watch the manufacturer’s instructions.
