Long Live the Paella King!

My weekend started off with the celebration of my nephew's baptism.  Since he is half Spanish, it seemed fitting to serve Paella.  While we have cooked Paella before, this time we left it in the hands of a pro...the Paella King.  Watching this master at work was as much fun as eating the Paella itself.  I delighted savoring the aroma as he worked through each stage of his craft.

He started by cooking the prawns, thus seasoning the oil.  He ended by placing in the mussels and clams into the rice.  It was like watching an artist working on canvas.
