In this short article, you will learn which ingredients you need to make an authentic Paella Valenciana. Those ingredientes should be part of a good Paella Set:
- A good olive oil: For Paella we recommend a virgin olive oil extra with a mild taste, so that it does not hide the taste of the other ingredients.
- Bomba rice: You can also use other short-grained round rice japonica varieties like the Albufera, but in our opinion it is worth to spend a little more and buy Bomba, which is the best possible rice for the preparation of Paella. After all, the rice is the most important ingredient for the paella.
- Garrofón Or Paella Beans: An authentic Valencian paella must contain garrofones, which are large white beans with brown sprinkles that have a thin skin and a very creamy texture.
