What is a description of paella?

Vanlencian Paella is made up of: White rice; green vegetables; meat and seasoning. (Especially saffron)

Saffron rice. Holy Trinity, cook the rice in seafood broth. Other ingredients are added with a 20 minute cooking time (pre-cook the chicken thighs, leave the mussels and oysters until the last minute) Gotta scorch the bottom layer of the rice, just a little, to firm it up. I do mine in my grandma's old cast iron skillet. Friends do it in a wok, or even a dedicated paella pan.

What are the Spanish specialties?

If by 'specialties' you mean food, there's a lot of choice. There's the well known paella - fish, vegetable or chicken (if you want recipes, there's hundreds online). There's a lot of types of tapas, which is basically a selection of smaller dishes - a bit like lots of small starters. In Spain, a lot of people eat their breakfast out at cafes and such, and they often serve things like tortillas (omelette), my abuelita when I'm over there always cooks me tortilla de patatas (very common, as is pincho de tortilla which is a tapas version of a tortilla, in other words tortilla cut into small pieces).

Churros are also pretty good, they're a bit like long out doughnuts that are battered, very yummy! Also, sangria is always good, and very spanish :D

Hope I've helped a bit.

It's not a good idea. If you serve acidic foods like tomato sauce (and there are a lot of tomatoes in gazpacho) it can cause the finish of the nambe bowl to get pitted and ruined.
