Part of The Depanneur + The Bentway’s new Communal Picnic series
Paella is often thought of as the Spanish national dish, but it is really a speciality of Valencia, though it has countless regional variations. Named after the pan it is cooked in, this classic rice dish has five key ingredients: Spanish short-grain rice, saffron, pimentón (smoked paprika), olive oil and a paella pan. Beyond that, there are innumerable local versions incorporating everything from seafood to snails to rabbit. José Arato, owner and Head Chef of Pimentón, has built an enthusiastic following around his take on this classic dish at Evergreen Brickworks Farmers’ Market.
A Catalonian grilled vegetable salad named from the Catalan word escalivar, meaning “to roast over ashes or embers,” as it is traditional to cook the vegetables over open flame. A selection of Mediterranean vegetables — most commonly red peppers, eggplants and onions — typically grilled in their skins and dressed with lots of garlic, parsley, lemon & olive oil.
Pork & Chicken Paella
One of José’s signature dishes, this delicious paella features fresh chicken and tender cubes of pork shoulder, with onion, garlic, tomatoes & peppers cooked with short-grain rice in a saffron-scented chicken stock.
