Tonight to Valencia for Paella. I made a vegetarian version and, like always, home paella is never as good as at a restaurant. The rice was a tad goopy. I’m not sure why restaurants need so much notice for paella, I mean, rice just doesn’t take THAT long, even with the traditional risotto methods. You can really only get the heat so low. Maybe they make the rice really angry or give it a virus so that its internal temp just goes up a bit. Whatever it is, it works better than what I do. We also had Hazelnut Soup, which wasn’t as good as it sounds. So, tonight was not a huge success. Live and learn.
