The Yummy Food Competition

Yummy Food Entry 1

Today’s post is my entry in the Yummy Food/ Recipe Competition in which the best article featuring a recipe or some other aspect of Mediterranean Cuisine will be awarded a Kindle Fire HD as the grand prize. As I am travelling, I am posting links to two recipes for Paella that I published some time ago but the competition deadline is not until February 7, 2014 so there is plenty of time for all of my regular readers to hustle something up and try their own luck. All the details can be found here ate Yummy Food.

It struck me a while ago that all my favorite dishes are rice-based and, aside from a whole range of Biryanis, pilafs, and Asian fried rice dishes, I have a special love for Risotto, Jambalaya and (of course) that quintessential Spanish dish, Paella, in all its glorious permutations.

I actually have a bucket list of foods I want to try in the country of origin and a Paella in Valencia is just about at the top of that list. Maybe someday will be able to help me on the first leg of my culinary world tour, but until then I have to make do with the efforts in my own kitchen. My entry (really entries) for the competition are:

Anyway, good luck to all my fellow bloggers and followers

(although, I am keeping my fingers crossed for myself, you understand)…

  3. Paella is one of my favorite dishes. My dad was from Alicante Spain and he taught me how to make this dish as soon as I was old enough to see over the stove. Your recipe looks great and I think you have a good shot with this dish. GOOD LUCK!

    • Someday I want too cook one over an open fire the traditional way!

      • The great thing about cooking it over an open flame is everything cooks evenly. I don’t know about you but when I cook this on the stove top I have to constantly rotate the pan for even cooking.

    i hope you win then!
