24/7 VALENCIA: What is World Paella Day?
WORLD PAELLA DAY: “World Paella Day is a recognition of the most universal dish of Spanish gastronomy. A day in which Valencians share our great dish with the rest of the world to celebrate, beyond recipes and ingredients, the internationality of the paella. A meal of humble Valencian origin that has transcended all borders. With eight million yearly searches on the internet, this makes it the fourth most important dish on the planet. It symbolizes the abstraction of an overhead view of a paella, where the broth of rice forms a fluid and organic world, mixing the flavours of all the ingredients and, at the same time, reflecting the path followed by the paella around the world. The inspiration for the colour palette comes from the turquoise that represents the Mediterranean Sea, accompanied with the shades of yellow and orange as a mixture of the broth and together we create a colour simile with the flag of Valencia.”
