Street paella. Valencia. Spain

Valencia - paella. Valencianos take their signiture dish very seriously. Jamie Oliver's addition of chorizo in a paella recipe caused a row that had the Spanish Ambassador to Britain involved. This one and one similar nearby, fed many hundreds of people who had been queueing patiently for 20-30-40 minutes for their helping. The street had 'a table' and chairs 120 metres long down the centre. A plate of paella and a beer cost €1. Note the ingredients boxes are the fuel for the pan.
