The theme of the August Hungry Globetrotter box was Paella Party and came with a recipe for paella and patatas bravas. I love paella and patatas bravas is one of my go-to tapas at a Spanish restaurant, so I was thrilled to get this box!

Santo Tomas Arroz Bomba – Value $15
Chiquilin Paella Spice with Saffron – Value $8

While I was in university, I was a nanny for two young girls. Their father was from Spain and so their house was full of exotic chorizos and bags of rice and beans. (Their mother was from Iceland, so they also had an equally amazing selection of dried fish!). I always wanted to try the food because I imagine it would be so much better than anything you can find in the supermarket. I am so happy to have both products here.

Enzo Sevillano Queen Olives Stuffed With Manchego Cheese – Value $8
Ferrer Brava Sauce – Value $5

One thing I miss about where I lived in London is that there were maybe 4 or 5 really nice Spanish restaurants in the area. The olives bring me back to my favorite salad while the Brava Sauce tastes just like the sauce used in the patatas bravas from our favorite restaurant.

Thoughts: I’ve never made paella because I heard it was hard to get right. Now that I have good rice and seasoning, I might give it a chance. I will definitely be dining on the olives and making my patatas bravas though! I am really happy with my first Hungry Globetrotter box and cannot wait for my next!
