Murcian cauldron

Today I put the flavor of the Mar Menor on the table with this wonderful Murcian cauldron for beginners. Although we need it, grandmother's wisdom is not necessary to move like a fish in water between pots and pans. You only need a pencil and paper to religiously copy the ingredients and follow this recipe step by step. Possibly one of the most delicious rice dishes of our gastronomy made in Spain.

If you are not very focused on Murcian gastronomy ... YOU ARE ALREADY TARDY. Let's see if you, too, like 'Murcia, how beautiful you are.
