Arrós en paella with Calasparra rice from Murcia, shrimp, scallops, squid rings, chorizo, green beans, peas, red pepper "stars," Pimentón de Murcia and azafrán (saffron)--yeh, we know it is overloaded with ingredients and yes, it's about the rice, Get over it. I had seven hungry paella lovers to feed! Paella after it came of the grill and prior to covering with a towel a few minutes before serving. Photo: Gerry Dawes©2011 / gerrydawes@aol.com.

Gerry Dawes was awarded Spain's prestigious Premio Nacional de Gastronomía (National Gastronomy Award) in 2003. He writes and speaks frequently on Spanish wine and gastronomy and leads gastronomy, wine and cultural tours to Spain.

". . .That we were the first to introduce American readers to Ferran Adrià in 1997 and have ever since continued to bring you a blow-by-blow narrative of Spain's riveting ferment is chiefly due to our Spanish correspondent, Gerry "Mr. Spain" Dawes, the messianic wine and food journalist raised in Southern Illinois and possessor of a self-accumulated doctorate in the Spanish table. Gerry once again brings us up to the very minute. . ." - - Michael & Ariane Batterberry, Editor-in-Chief/Publisher and Founding Editor/Publisher, Food Arts, October 2009.
