Sueca Paella Festival

Valencia, paella heartland

There are many events that Valencia is famous for, but there is very delicious one held in September, Sueca Paella Festival. Local chefs and plucky outsiders sweat over wide pans of yellow rice bubbling above open fires at the paella contest in Valencia. There are many shows and even fireworks round off the festivities.

As we all know, Valencia is not a pasta country, their traditional food is based on rice, surrounded by paddy fields in Spain's paella heartland, Sueca holds its own when it comes to cooking rice. If you go to Valencia, that's a great opportunity to try and enjoy the best food of the country. The wholesome aroma will send you straight into one of the nearby restaurants for your own plate...isn't it great?

So this month on the 12th you have to be in Valencia, the best cooks will get together to offer you the best food of the country, do not miss it. Taste plump morsels of rabbit, the integral Valencian component, alongside chicken, fat white snails in their shells, three types of bean, occasional mussels and a good dose of saffron, garlic and olive oil. The chefs will proudly show their paella at the 49th annual Sueca Paella Festival.
