What is jambalaya? Although it originates from Louisiana, it has French and Spanish roots, the use of spices is reminiscent of what you'll find in African and Caribbean Cuisine.

Paella means "frying pan" in Valencian, Valencia's regional language. As a dish, it may have ancient roots, but in its modern form it is traced back to the mid-19th century, in the rural area around the Albufera lagoon adjacent to the city of Valencia, on the east coast of Spain.
How did risotto originate? While, according to a legend, a young glassblower's apprentice of the Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano from Flanders, who used to use saffron as a pigment, added it to a rice dish at a wedding feast, the first recipe identifiable as risotto dates from 1809.
