Paella Night

Friday, March 04, 2011

Tonight we're having a small dinner party, among our guests are a vegetarian who eats fish and her boyfriend who eats meat, but doesn't like fish and a pregnant woman and her gluten-intolerant partner--talk about a tricky crowd for which to cook! After debating the merits of several dishes, we finally settled on a paella as our main course. I plan to make a hybrid of this Mixed Paellea recipe from Saveur and a seafood paella recipe from The Gourmet Cookbook. I'll use a combo of vegetable broth and shellfish stock, and I'll plan to cook the chorizo and chicken in separate pans. Then I'll separate out a fish-only portion for our vegetarian.

Hopefully everyone will be happy. I'm excited to cook paella for the first time; I'll let you know how it goes!
