Inspired to make your own paella? We have the perfect base for it. El Arroz de Calasparra, also known as “bomba rice” or “Valencia rice”, grows near the coast in East Spain. Its origin makes this short-grain rice natural as a base for any seafood dish. It absorbs two to three times the amount of water as many other rice, making it well-suited to take in any other flavors you might want to toss into the pot!
