I am so lucky to have a friend who is SERIOUS about food, and in this case, PAELLA :D
After literary months of test runs, using different methods, he has finally arrived to a place where he is comfortable with the result.
Below I give you, the real deal!
now aint that something!!! I wish i took better pictures cus mine doesnt do it justice! the color, the rice, the chicken - to die for!!!
how it's been cooked....感慨深いww
I shall state the obvious - IT WAS GOOD!
cheese! only Spanish cheese!
guacamole!!! it had a different twist after adding chopped tomato :)
olives with rosemary and garlic. Lots of it!
it was a platter of cute little sweet tomatoes and arugula on prosciutto, but i ate it before taking pictures.
this, is, genius! garlic and tomato infused bread toasted and drizzled with olive oil.
tortilla! i think it went better than before- changed the way i cut the potatos-now thinly sliced rather than chopped into cubes.
hipster ice gelato from greenpoint!
ginger & earl grey oishii~~~
what a journey!
Now I think it's safe to say that his paella master will happily give him a certificate :)
PS. I hear that he is now going to aim for squid ink paella&/larger size pan paella!
at this point, no one's going to believe me when i say he is not in the food business lol
