Authentic paella?

Hi everyone! I know we have some Spanish members here (Jiza, Loretta...anyone else?) Anyway - I was recently asked for an 'authentic' paella recipe, and realized I don't have a clue! I'm wondering what to you is an 'authentic' paella? Do you need a paella pan? What kind of rice? What should go in it? What are the must-have characteristics? Please chime in whether you're Spanish or not, if you love paella :)

Spanish omelette recipe for bento

Hi people this is my first post. I've decided to go bento since i need to save some money due to financial crisis ._. So I've been lurking lots of bento-friendly recipes through the Internet when I realized that the most traditional recipe here in Madrid can be easily used for bentos! I'm writing the recipe below... no photos, sorry. I'll made some next time i cook another omelette! Please note this is not diet food at all! This is a little tricky to do but it tastes greatly either cold or just made and will last a few days in the fridge. You'll need: - 3 eggs
