Paella Kit Giveaway: Fun Fun Fun!

In recent weeks I've been dreaming about a vacation, to some exotic locale, where I can really just leave all my worries behind.  I've got a bunch of things on my mind, brewing, sitting, percolating back in my brain, and sometimes I just want to shut it off and get away.  I'm pretty sure that Spain, with all of its fantastic eats, beautiful weather and gorgeous landscape would be just the place to forget EVERYTHING, but alas - I can only get away on my magic paella pan and paella myself away!!

I'm so excited that the folks at La Tienda are giving this really neat paella kit to one of my fantastic readers.  The company has been around for 15 years, and they specialize in authentic ingredients from Spain, so that your dishes have an authentic flavor.  In the paella kit you'll find saffron, olive oil, rice, pimenton and piquillo peppers.  It is set it up to whisk you away on a magic paella pan ride to a fantastic new place!


Paella Kit Blog Giveaway

To enter to win a Paella Kit, you MUST do the following. Leave a comment below telling me what you found particularly delicious and appetizing on the La Tienda website.  Make sure you leave some way for me to contact you, in case you are the winner.

For an extra entry - Facebook!
You can have an extra entry if you like La Tienda's Facebook Page.  Leave a SECOND comment below telling me that you have liked their page.

A winner will be chosen at random on FRIDAY, October 7, at midnight PST. 
(I am a former high school English Teacher, so I am bit of a stickler for rules. Entries which do not follow the instructions will be disqualified.)

I'm off to imagine myself somewhere in Spain!

Insomnia pays off! I love how they arrange their platters of thinly sliced ham, which look great with hardly any garnish. I frequently serve meatless salads, and provide a separate plate of sliced meats on the side, and I'll totally going to crib off their arrangement. :)

The Grilling Meats have my mouth watering! The pork looks amazing, So I just may have to treat my family and myself to this!! Especially the Presa Ibérica de Bellota - Pork Shoulder Steak!! What a great find for Authentic Spanish Ingredients!

you tease me so! i went to spain years ago with a couple of good friends. food was so good there and it's such a laid back country. definitely some good memories!

i would get one of each item from this website, but the big 16 pound jamon serrano on one of those stands could live in my kitchen with a side of tortilla espanola. and can i get a carafe of sangria with that?

Jamon Serrano is making my mouth water right now. Oh and the olives. I'm craving savory today! I LOVE tapas and this is all reminding me of Barcelona...

Arroz negro paella - I first tried this delicious morsel of food on my first trip to Barcelona, Spain, and have not been able to stop thinking about it ever since. Since then, I have been on the hunt for more arroz negro paella in the U.S., with little success! On my second trip to Spain, I stopped in Valencia, and tried this particularly appetizing paella, which made with squid ink.

im THIS close to ordering a ham holder and one of their jamones...but am also totally tempted to make the same paella you did. either way, this website is definitely bookmarked.

I love that they have ingredients available to order. Living in Kansas, I may not be able to find the ingredients I need at a local store. I also like that they have four different varieties of paella pans in several different sizes. I have wanted a paella pan for a long time.

The paella kit seems like a great starting point for paella newbies like myself. There are so many interesting items at the La Tienda site, but I'm most keen on trying the olivada tradicional and almond-stuffed olives.

so of course the paella section of the website is great (especially the gas burner!) but the most delicious and appetizing part for me would be the TAPAS!!! drool...
btw, i actually love making paella for family dinner and entertainment (1-pot-meal!), and we always add squid/calamari to the chicken/sausage/shrimp/clams on top! yummy, just might make one for this rainy day...

Thanks for this giveaway! My sister studied in Spain for a year and I had the opportunity to visit her for a little less than a month. I fell in love with the yummy ham and delicious cheeses such that my husband and I still have cheese parties now and then. Their Cured Meats of Spain Sampler plus Olives and Peppers looks amazing! Although, who could say no to croquettas and the delicious seafood that reminds me of Barcelona?
