Isn't a "paellera" another name for a "wok" ?

Funny is the coincidence of names but our wok originated from a stall in Nathan 
Road, Kowloon back in 1971 or so :-)

I can vouch for the fact that woks do make for excellent paellas as has ours 
from 1971 to date !

Last Sunday was one of those occasions. I went for my morning bike ride, a reasonably easy 74 km, 
and then I came home around lunchtime, Roberto the Rice Master was already starting the 
preliminaries to make a paella for us. Altogether we were 10 people, and of course the pleasure lies 
as much in watching the preparations as in the subsequent enjoyment of the final product. We had 
bought the ingredients, everyone brought some wine, Roberto brought his paellera (we have one but 
not as large as this), and everyone was happy. I went to bed around 11 pm, and I was the first to 
go—one of the advantages of having the party in our own place. This was basically a delayed 
birthday party for my wife (her birthday was the preceding Wednesday) and it worked out much better 
than a “real” party. As I usually do on such occasions, I put together a gallery for 
the participants, but I think that the images, or at least some of them, are good enough to share 
with the wider group:


And yes, the food was delicious!
