Paella Valenciana

Paella Valenciana is essentially the mother to all other forms of paella. Authentic Paella Valenciana is hard to find, but, when you do, you will find it to be as exquisite as paella gets. You can omit the snails in this recipe, but the paella will not be authentic. You can find the snails in cans at most specialty grocery stores.
