Paella rice in Charlotte
Does anyone know where I can buy proper Paella rice in Charlotte?
Yes I do mean bomba rice. I have made Paella numerous times with many different types of rice and it's never quite right, too firm, too soft and such, so I am on a mission. I was about to order from La Tienda but I thought I would ask Charlotteans if they have had any luck finding it locally.
Thanks for the input.
I'd call around to Reid's, Dean & DeLuca and Earthfare. Better yet, email Kathleen Purvis, the Food Editor @ The Charlotte Observer, she's got the skinny on anything food related in the queen city.
All through the Paella (summer) season, I consistently use Botan Calrose rice and receive raves for the finished dish. Great results and easy on the pocketbook, too!
