Preparing Paella Pan in a successful Way
from Thomas Sixt
Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!
Today I’m going to show you my paella pan. I already presented the original paella from Spain some time ago in another post. Here is the terrace or balcony version with an electric pan – super practical.
You’ll find plenty of Spanish vibes in the article, because I cooked the dish in my garden on Mallorca.
Let’s get started and whip up a delicious rice dish. After all, we’re hungry after a swim, aren’t we?
