I’m just back from 10 days in the Hebrides, first for a beautiful wedding on Tiree, and then on to Gigha and Arran, doing research for Andro’s next book.
I love the Scottish islands not least for the wonderful fish and shellfish available there. This is a magnificent paella made by our host on Tiree. He learned to make paella from a Spanish chef when he was studying Spanish as a teenager in Barcelona, and adapted it to the local seafood on Tiree, so there were loads of velvet clams and large crab claws in it. One of the guests at the pre-wedding dinner party it was made for, proclaimed it the best meal she had ever eaten, and said that she would remember it to her dying breath!
