Need make 8 (or more) people very happy at a party? This zesty Party Spanish Paella For a Crowd from the folks at Je Mange la Ville might be the answer to your prayers.
As I discovered years ago in Spain, after a long day of hard work under the merciless sun, soul-healing paella and good wine can be a truly magical combination.
This recipe isn’t exactly the simplest recipe that I’ve ever shared here. However, if sophisticated comfort food full of savory goodness your friends and family can taste is what you’re after, this wonderful Spanish paella recipe is more than worth the effort.
Looking for something simpler to make that still captures the sunny flavors of Spain? You won’t want to miss this easy, original recipe for Spanish Style Garlic Shrimp With Capers.
