    No trip to Spain would be complete without sampling their famous rice dish, paella. The ingredients vary from region to region, but we've used monkfish, squid and mussels for this version. Serve with crusty bread.

    This family paella recipe is simple, authentic, delicious and satisfying if you use good quality ingredients. I have catered for hundreds at a time with it and had no complaints, and I'm always being asked for my recipe so here it is! Although the pictures here show my dad and I preparing enough paella for well over 100 people, the recipe is designed to serve around six people. Enjoy!

    Paella is a Catalan word which derives from the Old French word paelle for pan which in turn comes from the Latin word patella for pan as well. Patella is also akin to the modern French poĂȘle, the Welsh padell, the Italian padella, the Old Spanish padilla, the Polish patelnia, and the New Mexican Spanish puela.

    I love rice based dishes but aren't a fan of seafood so decided to develop a chicken and chorizo paella. It's far simpler to make than I expected and tastes great! This meal has become a regular in my house and always goes down well when I cook it for guests too.

    This lovely paella is traditional and packed with flavour. Originating from Spain, this incredible dish is enjoyed all over the world and especially by us on the south coast where we can get all the ingredients nice and fresh.
