Getting a paella pan

Getting a paella pan

I had been using a large low roasting pan to make paella, and thought that I really should get an actual pan that was meant for cooking paella. I found out that World Market carried a “paella kit” which included a 34 cm pan, olive oil, seasoning, and rice. The hardest thing seems to be finding the right kind of rice for the paella, so I was interested to see how this would turn out. I wasn’t too hyped up on using the seasoning packet, but I figured we’d give it a try.

In the end, the paella was quite tasty! Still we have the issue of the rice not cooking well on the sides, but here is the finished paella:
