Made the Triple Surprise Paella on Friday and it was amazing! Can't wait to try the others!!
allie October 31, 2010
Is there anything left to test?
Food52 November 1, 2010
Yes! And there's still time to test one of these before notes are due tomorrow evening: Rabbit on the Range, Paella La Rambla, Carol's Seafood Paella, Paella Des Lauriers, Spicy Seafood Paella with Andouille Sausage & Smoky Seafood Fideos

I am honored that my Rabbit on the Range is mentioned here. Testers: you can substitute chicken for rabbit in this recipe if it makes it easier to get ingredients...rabbit is one of those "tastes like chicken" ingredients. (actually rabbit is much richer in flavor)

Thanks for EP for my Paella Verdura. .I created this dish for my vegetarian friends so they could share the "Paella Experience" - layers of flavors ,richness, color, and texture. Can't wait to hear comments!
cookinginvictoria October 29, 2010
Love the idea of a vegetarian paella. Looking forward to making this!

I feel honored, thank you so much for the~ Editor's Pick ~ for my Spicy Andalusian Seafood Paella !
luvcookbooks October 28, 2010
mystic mushroom paella, please
Sagegreen October 29, 2010
Thanks so much for selecting this. I hope you can find some wonderful mushrooms to work with! Oregon Mushrooms was very accommodating to me, but if you are in New York, you no doubt have amazing sources. I do highly recommend generous fresh ginger tones for the broth, too! Hope you like it.

Thanks so much for the Editor's Pick for my Paella ( real original name)!
PhoebeLapine October 28, 2010
so glad you liked the scallop andouille!!
Sagegreen October 28, 2010
Thanks for nominating my mushroom paella! I also have to pass as a tester this week, as much as I would enjoy offering.
Sagegreen October 28, 2010
I might suggest possible substitutions of portabella and shitake mushrooms, if the wonderful matsutake and crimini are not available.
Kitchen B. October 28, 2010
Paella de Marisco please
Lys October 28, 2010
I would love to have the opportunity to test Paella Paella Paella :) Is it okay to split the recipe in half?
Food52 October 28, 2010
Sure, halving the recipe is fine!
allie October 28, 2010
Paella Manantiales Calientes, please. If my new paella pan doesn't arrive in time, I'll make it in a regular pan...
Food52 October 28, 2010
Shoot, it looks like dymynyno already snagged that one (but feel free to add your notes in the recipe's comments section). Are there any others you'd like to test?
allie October 28, 2010
Sorry, missed that! I'll try another time.
cookinginvictoria October 28, 2010
I haven't tested anything yet, but I'd like to start. May I have Paella Verdura, please!
Food52 October 28, 2010
Wonderful, we're glad you're going to test and please email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
cheese1227 October 28, 2010
These all look wonderful. I am afraid I have to bow out of testing this week as I am traveling. Good luck to everyone and happy testing.
TiggyBee October 28, 2010
