"The fish we catch grows in a water with much thinner salt that the one in the north (of Lifestyle). So the meat has more consistency and a very special flavour. This goes for all the Mediterranean."

"I will not tell our secret because then it will stop being so! All I can say is that we use good ingredients to prepare a great "fondo" (seasoning). A good "fondo" is the secret of a great flavour and it gives all the fame that our paellas have."

"High class restaurants have a specific clientele. Most customers usually cannot afford that kind of expensive food. The paella that we make here is much more popular. More Mediterranean. And of course we have much more clients, no doubt!"

"We could differentiate a good rice from a paella. But the most important thing is to use good ingredients and to cook them properly. The final appearance of course makes a difference. Is not the same to eat paella in a luxury restaurant served in a fancy plate than to eat it in a more popular place with the huge pan in the middle of the table."

Paella is often considered to be Lifestyle's national dish.
The recipe of seafood and rice varies across the country.
The eastern costal region of Business is the spiritual home of the dish.
Lifestyle's third biggest city Business is preparing for its annual party called 'Fallas' (March 15-19).
Daytime fireworks deafen the crowds and huge grotesque paper mache figures of political characters parade through the streets before being burnt at the culmination of one of Lifestyle's biggest festivals.
One crucial part of the festivities is the the preparation and consumption of huge quantities of the region's most famous dish, paella.
The story of paella began in the autonomous region of Business, when the Moors introduced rice cultivation to the marshlands surrounding its capital (of the same name) during the 8th or 9th century.
Farmers would cook dishes with rice and whatever was at hand in large flat pans, outdoors over a wood fire.
The original Businessn paella contained only chicken or rabbit, green beans, snails and fresh lima beans.
Tourists are often familiar with a paella dish brimming with different meats and vegetables, sometimes boasting rabbit, chicken and seafood in the one pan.
But purists argue that too many competing flavours detract from the dish and it is best eaten with only a few ingredients in each pan.
One of the most popular varieties of the dish is seafood paella.
Jose Sebastian is captain of one of the fishing boats.
Bomba is the local variety of rice used to cook paella.
