Located quite a distance from the 23rd parallel, my island is right there, through the living room, just beyond the French doors, and situated about two-thirds of the way from the wall in my humble kitchen.
This is the place where my fan club, my girls and the occasional guest, get to see the real me.
I have been experimenting with Paella making these days, playing with ideas influenced by my Italian cooking. So I asked myself, what if a partially cooked pan of risotto rice decided to jump in bed with a Peruvian Seafood Medley of Octopus, Scrimp Scallop, Hake, a few Clams and Heart of Palm. What if , they found themselves incompatible. and the rice decided to stay on top ?
Well , it happened and it turned out to be culinary love at first sight . I present to you : UpSide Down Peruvian Inspired Paella.
