Unveiling the Essence of Socarrat and its Importance to your Paella Rice

What is Socarrat? Socarrat, derived from the Spanish verb "socarrar," meaning "to burn" or "to scorch," refers to the delectable layer at the bottom of a paella pan. As the broth cooks out, this layer crisps up, creating a tantalizing texture that elevates the entire paella experience.

El Socarrat Paella Rice: A premium short-grain rice crafted for authentic paella. With its mild flavour, El Socarrat Rice absorbs the essence of other ingredients, making it extremely absorbent. It expands in width, not length, retaining its shape when cooked. The result? A non-sticky, non-creamy, naturally gluten-free masterpiece.

  • 1/2 cup green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, halved
