Categories: Gastronomy

Every September 20th is celebrated the World Paella Day, a typical dish of the Valencian Community, which has managed to cross borders and to captivate the most demanding palates. 

This food of humble origins, whose protagonist is rice, has been able to adapt to different regions of Spain and the world, since its nobility has allowed the incorporation of different products, and hence its variants: Valencian, with seafood, with meat, vegetable paella, with black rice, etc. 

Its versatility has led paella to become the fourth most important dish on the planet, with more than eight million annual searches on the Internet

This competition takes place in the city of Valencia just on September 20, or days before the World Paella Day, however, cities like Toronto, Bombay, Helsinki or Canton have also prepared several special activities to celebrate it.
