Paella Day: An iconic dish of our gastronomy, and also universal, the 8 million annual searches on the internet make Paella the fourth most important dish on the planet. And the thing is that few things represent Spain at once such as paella, which precisely has one day of the year to be honored. In fact, it is today, September 20, when World Paella Day is celebrated.
The International Paella Day is “a recognition of the most universal dish of the gastronomy of Valencia”. A day in which Valencians share our great dish with the rest of the world to celebrate, beyond recipes and ingredients, the internationality of paella. A meal of humble Valencian origin that has crossed all borders.
