Recipe: Paella

Paella recipe, it’s been a while since I planned to make a beautiful paella. Dominique had ordered small red squids, a real wonder. I like to cook paella, always for several hours, but always very pleasant moments, with a little white… Paella, there are surely other recipes, some use rabbit, others no chorizo, everyone will find noon at their own. Porte, I like paella with chorizo, this sausage is pure Hispanic, it has its place in this Spanish dish. I would not have called it royal paella with these langoustines all fresh, however a little expensive.
