Burnt burgers are a thing of the past. Today's most fashionable barbecues are doing something very different with the quintessentially Spanish dish, paella.
Paella is not just a rice dish, it's a culinary technique that can be applied to a range of recipes, and most importantly the culture of paella is festive. We've selected the six best recipes for a summer barbecue so you can easily impress your friends.

For a complete guide to everything you need to know to cook authentic paella, Paella is your indespensible guide.
