Paella, paella, paella!!!

Tennessee Guitar Festival 2008, annual paella party.

Paella is a typical Valencian rice dish from Spain. We are mostly "vegetarians plus seafood," so our paella is a seafood paella with saffron rice, shrimp, scallops, cod, clams, mussels - garnished with roasted red peppers, lemons and mussels in the shell. Lemon asparagus on the side. It was a hit as usual, amazingly good!!

From L to R:
Matt Palmer (badass guitarist, best Tennessee-born classical guitarist - ever); Fred Palmer (Matt's brother and marathon runner); Silviu Ciulei (MTSU Senior), Javier Castellote (MTSU Guitar GTA), Randy Reed (guest artist), Christopher Berg (guest artist), Andrea Dawson (MTSU faculty violinist), Valerie Hartzell (guest artist), Robert and Pamela Trent (guest artists), Jerry Roberts (Nashville guitar seller). Me... I'm the cook.
