Thumb_13021_Jeane Kirkpatrick's Paella

John Kirkpatrick has fond memories of the hours his mother spent in the kitchen making paella two or three times a year. For this recipe, she used a pan he says must have measured 2 1/2 to 3 feet wide, but the dish can be made in a roasting pan as well. Read more about this recipe in the Washington Post.

More than 400 years of Spanish occupation left Catalan influences on modern Sardinian cooking.

Mussels stand up well to strong Asian flavors like ginger and lemongrass -- and are surprisingly easy and fast to prepare at home. Be sure to discard any mussels that are open before cooking, or closed once steamed.

The Italians don't believe in adding cheese to fish dishes, but we find it adds excitement to this shrimp pasta made with asparagus, tomato purée and lemon zest. Be sure to season this dish with lots of freshly ground black pepper.

Orthodox Italians -- who do not believe in mixing fish and cheese -- would be averse to the addition of parmesan in this spring pasta. But we don't have an Italian grandmother to scold us for the sacrilege, and think it's delicious. If you're a classicist, skip the cheese.

Bouillabase is a traditional Provençal fish stew originating from the port city of Marseille. It can include any variety of fish or shellfish in a rich broth. To serve this for a party, try making the broth in advance, and then asking each guest to bring 1/4 pound of their favorite seafood to share.
