Spain is a country that falls in love not only with its unusual architecture and sunny resorts, but also with its delicious cuisine. Take at least paella-a national dish of rice, a master class on the preparation of which was attended by the singerVera Brezhnev during the filming of the travel show "Heads&Tails. 10 years", which was shown by the New Channel.
Right now, for me, the most delicious Spanish dish is paella. By the way, I didn't fall in love with her right away. Several times I was in Barcelona, tried it and did not understand why this dish is so popular with everyone. And only now, having tasted a really delicious paella, I realized the meaning and taste of this dish, "said the host of" Heads&Tails. 10 years" on the New Vera Brezhnev Channel. - I prefer, by the way, the option with seafood.
Paella is prepared in different ways — with vegetables, meat, seafood. The Spaniards do it languidly, slowly — at least two hours.
