This rice rocks. Having made paella for years with risotto rice, this rice is so much better. The risotto goes from too firm to mush in minutes. There is no in between. The Calasparra is a rice that can stay al dente for a decent length of time. I cook most of my paella on the stove, but finish it in the oven to meld all the flavors together. The rice is still firm after 15 minutes in the oven. That won me over completely. Best paella ever.
It's good rice but the bag only contains 5 cups of it. Most home cooks use a 15" paella pan and nearly every recipe for a 15" pan uses 3 cups of rice. So your $11 purchase gets you enough rice to make one paella. Add another cup guys.
I bought this rice for Spanish and Asian recipes. It cooks well, tastes delicious, and was much easier to find on Amazon than a local store.I have used it in Spanish Paella and served it with several curries.I am very pleased with this rice.
