It is a tasty dish that requires the right touch to bake it through to the middle properly.

Paella is the name of a traditional rice dish. Paella is from the Spanish region of Valencia. Three different types of paella are popular in Spain. First, the paella Valenciana contains white rice, beans, vegetables, spices, and either chicken, rabbit, or duck meat. The second is the seafood Paella, which has rice, seasoning, and assorted seafood. The third is paella mixta, which includes a mixture of chicken and seafood, with the most common seafood being clams used in this dish. The mixta also includes vegetables, as well as saffron, along with other spices.

Spanish Food #3: Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a type of Spanish tomato soup that is served both cold and warm. It is made from tomatoes, cucumber, and onions and is seasons with garlic, olive oil, salt, and wine vinegar. Some mixtures of this dish include ham as well, and sometimes additional chopped vegetables are added to the soupy base. This dish is often served cold in the hot summertime.

Spanish Food #4: Spanish Sheep Cheese

One of the most popular types of cheese in Spain is Spanish sheep cheese, made famous from the legendary Don Quixote tales. This cheese is specifically made in the La Mancha region of Spain. It is often served as part of an appetizer, with cracks and other cracker toppings. It has a rich and intense flavor that is worth trying at least once.

Spanish Food #5: Grilled Fish
