Discover Spain’s Favorite Dish: Enjoy Organic Paella from Heidi’s House , Manhattan, New York

From Indian basmati rice to the flavorful quinoa of the Andeans in South America, nearly every country around the globe has their own distinctive grain dish. Few grain-based dishes are as healthy and as well-loved as paella, a Spanish dish that originated in Valencia and a customer favorite at NYC restaurant Heidi’s House by The Side of The Road.

Derived from a Catalan word that means “pan,” paella is predictably cooked in a shallow pan. The Spanish rice is loaded with vegetables, beans, seasoning, a rich broth, and meat, such as rabbit, chicken, duck, or land snails.

Paella of the more coastal regions of Valencia consists of seafood fare, such as shrimp or fish. Modern mixed paella uses a mix of both ingredients to create a zesty compromise between land and sea. It is best enjoyed with a glass of white wine.

At Heidi’s House by The Side of The Road diners will enjoy Chef Cipriano Pita’s inventive version of this traditional Valencian dish. Try the paella with seared scallops, shrimp, lobster, chorizo, a slab of bacon, and sweet little onions. As with all dishes from Heidi’s, the paella is crafted from organic and locally sourced ingredients, so you know the food you're eating is wholesome and fresh.
