    We love to cook “arroz al horno”, a dish made in a GIANT ceramic dish in the oven. It is similar to paella, except that it is baked. It is full of rice, garlic, chick peas, onion, chicken, and saffron, and covered with a thick layer of tomatoes and crispy chorizo. Then you squeeze lemon juice on top right before eating. My used-to-be-almost-mother-in-law in Valencia, Spain taught me how to make it, and I have tweaked it since (for example, by adding artichokes and taking out a vast amount of olive oil!) It’s fantastic, and always feeds a crowd very successfully!
