One theory is that this classic dish was invented after the liberation of Rome in 1944.

Paella with Harrington’s Chorizo and Harrington’s Streaky bacon
It’s a little confusing but ’paella’ or to be more exact ‘la paella’ is an old Valencian name for the cooking pan itself and not the dish.

It takes an authentic recipe to make a truly great paella. And top quality ingredients, like Harrington’s fresh chorizo made to a traditional recipe, with its spicy tang of fresh chili and smoked paprika blended with the finest 100% New Zealand pork and beef. Now we’re talking Spanish.
