My Favourite Paella

Combine textures and smoky flabours in this mouth-watering paella recipe by Jamie Oliver.

My Favourite Paella


You can pick up a proper paella pan (like the one in the picture) at most department stores, but a large shallow pan about 30cm across will also work a treat.

This is another example of a European chef who cannot correctly cook paella. Jamie doesn't prepare with a sofritto to begin his paella, he doesn't finish with socorat [crust] and the rice is more akin to a risotto. His reputation has certainly crash in my opinion.

I love Jamie Oliver. He makes life so much easier for busy mums like me. I have been trying most of his recipes lately and I always get excellent compliments from my family. The things I love most from Jamie's recipes are not just the ease of preparing the food but also the freshness and flavour. They are very healthy, too. For Mother's Day, I asked my kids to get me Jamie's cookbooks, nothing else. I'm a big fan.

I love this version of paella. Jamie always cuts complicated recipes down to easy home offerings. The addition of pork belly makes for a moist paella. I used arborio rice and omitted the mussels but everything else produced a wholesome, flavoursome family meal. I will make this again, thanks Jamie.
