Selkie, just find the wine to go with it. I'll pick it up for us.

Bolas, I've never made paella. I've never seen such a fantastic presentation of it though.

Deal!

In truth, I'd have trouble justifying the expense of buying a paella pan, particularly since I've never tried to make it before. I've always settled for either seafood stew in a Dutch Oven, or let a restaurant chef make it for me. I think it would be less trouble flying to visit Bolas in Wales.

I've never made it myself, but the best I've ever had was in my favorite restaurant in Manhattan (now closed), called Victor's Cafe, a spectacular Cuban restaurant. Their paella had chorizo, chicken, lobster tails, scallops, shrimp, clams, and mussels.
