Nearly 1200 years ago the Moors brought rice to the shores of the Mediterranean, shaping the course of Spanish cuisine. Paella, a rice dish with humble origins, is one of Spain's most emblematic delicacies.
The dish originated in the 19th century in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain. Peasants around Lake Albufera wanted a meal they could cook over an open fire using local ingredients.
