According to this History of Paella article, paella combines the Roman and Arabic cultures. Arab conquerors introduced rice in Valencia. The word “paella,” may have stemmed from the Arabic word “baquia,” which means leftovers. So, historically, paella was introduced as the delicious solution to leftovers. And depending on where you live, you would utilize ingredients available in that region. It makes sense then that there are many variations of paella today!

But even as we get creative with paella, there are two constants in a good paella recipe: Spanish saffron–thankfully, we need a little bit of this expensive stuff– and short-grain rice or Calasparra rice.
