enjoying a winter paella

Having my middle daughter Sophie and grandson George in Barx a long weekend and a sunny day it was a good chance yesterday to cook a paella in the garden with great mountain views together with friends Alinka and Rafa who translated my Paella book into Castellaño and added a poem about the paella to the text. Cooked one for eight to ensure that there were a few extra helpings to freeze for a warm up on busy days. when arriving home late.

Naturally we stuck to the recipe included in the two books Authentic Valencian Paellas and Autentica Paella Valenciana except since George wanted to try some of my Christmas turkey that had weighed 40 pounds we substituded turkey meat for the normal chicken meat - it added a special flavour.
