I love paella! Need I say more?

The Spaniards really know how to make good food and paella, for me, is one of their culinary masterpieces.

Good thing they introduced this dish to the Filipinos and oh boy, the Filipinos loved it.

So what are the ingredients that make a perfect paella anyway?

Do you want it filled with seafood or just meat?

Let me give you an idea on what you can pick ‘n mix to make a big bowl full of saffron goodness.


1. Shrimps or prawns

2. Clam

3. Lobster

4. Squid

5. Mussels


1. Chorizo

2. Chicken

3. Bacon

4. Eggs


1. Beans

2. Carrots

3. Peas

4. Eggplant

5. Rosemary

6. Saffron

7. Green or red pepper


1. Lemon wedges

2. Tomatoes

3. Olives

4. Prunes

All these ingredients make paella very mouth-watering!

This kinda reminds me of something else that I want to pick ‘n mix.

Just like paella, pizza is a merriment mix of savory stuff.

Sometimes, I wish I can choose the toppings on my pizza and not just choose pre-determined flavors on the menu.

Don’t you agree with me?
