Available in 900g.

This traditional Spanish rice is the essential base for a classic paella. Paella (pah-ay-yah) roots are found near Valencia, where this family style dish may have different ingredients, the constant in the recipe is this naturally delicious rice. The rice has a specific absorptive quality and exterior hardness which allows it to absorb flavour but not get mushy, very important qualities for paella.
