Paella (my own recipe )


Hello , for next recipe , a good way to say adeus =) spanish too the summer and welcome autumn is here , we love this recipe in home . Its good one for family because the bigger you do , taste even better.Types of paella include Valencian paella (Spanish: paella valenciana), vegetarian/vegan paella (Spanish: paella de verduras), seafood paella (Spanish: paella de marisco), and mixed paella (Spanish: paella mixta), but there are many others as well.Spanish food historian Lourdes March notes that the dish symbolizes the union and heritage of two important cultures, the Roman, which gives us the utensil and the Arab which brought us the basic food of humanity for centuries.According to tradition in Valencia, paella is cooked over an open fire, fueled by orange and pine branches along with pine cones. This produces an aromatic smoke which infuses the paella. Also, dinner guests traditionally eat directly out of the paellera.

Ingredients :

500 gr of squid cleaned and sliced
1 medium cooked octopus and cut into slices
500 g of cleaned medium shrimp
8 King prawns shelled
6 mussels without shells
1 chopped medium onion into small pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
Extra virgin olive oil
3 tomatoes peeled and chopped seeds
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 tablespoon (soup) of turmeric powder
1 tablespoon (soup) of saffron wool
Fish stock


Heat the olive oil in a paella (the pan is the same as the name of the dish), add the onion and wait wither and then the garlic.

Add the rice, let it fry in a little olive oil and add the fish broth with saffron powder and wool safrron.

When the rice is already getting the point, add to it chopped tomatoes, prawns then the squid, octopus and finally the mussels, remembering the cooking time of each ( you need boil all octopus, squid before ), so they do not run the risk of being gnats .

Once the rice is getting soft, add the parsley, cover with foil and let stand for five or ten minutes before serving.

It was a delight, and I hope you like it, good appetite !!

Octopus a lagareiro


Octopus Lagareiro is a typical culinary dish of Portugal. As the name implies, it is made with octopus. This is baked and then grilled. It is served warm drizzled with olive oil, which should have been browned garlic and small pieces of onion. As a follow up, the baked potatoes are used.

The expression lagareiro designates an individual who works in a mill in the production of olive oil. It is used in this context because of the abundant amount of oil that is used to water the octopus.

portugal 1-2


1 Octopus (was 2,780)
1 onion
small potatoes
green peppers
Garlic Cloves
olive oil

Start by arranging the octopus, wash it well in hot running water and cutting it into pieces of two tentacles each. Then place it in a pan, along with a peeled onion, cut roughly in half moons, a little salt and a generous wire oil. Tapo and let cook slowly.
Once cooked, let cool slightly.
However, eight smash garlic cloves into the bottom of a baking sheet and gully them with olive oil, to cover the entire background. Disposal over the octopus pieces, properly drained of water and cook the onion, and sprinkle them with the remaining crushed garlic cloves. Rego plenty of olive oil and go to the oven to brown.
As for the potatoes, wash them thoroughly and place them in a baking dish. Sprinkles them liberally with salt (do not worry they are not salty) and take them to the oven on high heat, about an hour. You may want to move them halfway through cooking. In the end, cut up one by one onto a cutting board and gives to him a punch. It serves up simple, and each dish put oil or octopus sauce on top, according to taste. Accompany with a salad.
I suggest you put the potatoes in the oven before the octopus, since, being raw, take longer to cook.


This Lightly Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with gooseberry, passionfruit, fresh citrus, and melon aromas. The wine is vibrant, clean and crisp, with a lingering sparkle in the mouth. The small delicate bubbles of this frizzante style wine enhance the citrus and gooseberry flavours.

It is not easy to tell your Dad that you are quitting a career in carpentry to try your hand at making wine. But in 1961, at the age of 21, that’s exactly what Sir George Fistonich did. He leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name ‘Villa Maria’ which he chose because his friends thought it sounded European.

Prosciutto and watercress Bruchetta


Hello everyone we are here to challenge this month which was bruchettas the group Day One … In The Kitchen,

The word “bruschetta” has its origins in central Italy, and is a slice of toasted bread.
Toasting the bread on the grill gives you a special fragrance, but with an oven or a chicken you can get the same good result.
It is believed that the food this poor man was born as a snack for the workers in the fields. It was prepared with homemade products, sometimes moldy, and seasoned with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and tomato.
These are the basic ingredients of bruschetta. However, today, the ways of preparing it and variations in circulation are truly endless.
For proper preparation of bruschetta is necessary slightly the surface of the bread grid, taking care that remains soft inside. Tuscan bread with its large loaf and square often lends itself particularly well because it can be easily sliced.
These should be fairly thick, surrounded by a very hard crust, but crisp, with a soft crumb, white, and small and regular cavities (adequate to absorb the oil). These one Grilled time, although well seasoned with olive oil, will be tough and easily managed. It sa bread that stays good for a long time and so it is ideal to be used to prepare this dish, even if it is not freshly baked. If you consider that, in the past, especially in very poor rural areas of Italy, often, one had little more than that, it is understandable as bruschetta became often a full dinner and not just a snack or appetizer.


1 cibata
Black olives
White sesame seeds
Crutons (these are homemade)
Pesto (and also homemade)

To start toasting the bread on both sides, then remove and cool and brush with olive oil and oregano. Book, pick up the black olives and the robot with spoon of olive oil, until a paste spread the slices of bread
Wash watercress.
Catch in properly seasoned ja bread slices and cover with olive paste, make then a watercress bed covering gently with a thin slice of ham.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and use pesto to taste.
Also used for the decoration crutons who then put income in another post.
