Sharing my Spanish culinary experiences through words and images is mostly adequate, but I thought it would be even better to give one lucky gas•tron•o•my reader the tools to whip up some authentic paella in his or her own home. The Paella Starter Kit includes a sturdy pan, threads of locally-grown saffron, and a kilogram of locally-grown rice. All items were procured at Valencia’s Central Market. Not everyone can be whisked away to Spain for a holiday, but with the right materials, the flavors of Spain can come to you!
To qualify for the Paella Starter Kit giveaway, please leave a comment with your name and email address in the appropriate fields, and your answer to the following question: What’s the tastiest city in the world and why. I will read through each entry and choose the one that most suits my fancy. [Extra points for bold declarations and creativity.] The contest is open to domestic and international residents. Only one entry per person, please. All entries must be received by Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at midnight PST. Good luck!
