The whole of the Iberian Peninsular coast has an important and varied culture revolving around rice that started more than a thousand years ago with the Arabs. Each area has its own way of cooking it and its own recipes for rice. The Catalans love diced onion in their rice dishes, something the Valencians consider an abomination. And while the Catalans like mixing rice with meat and fish, the Valencians think that's absurd. A good way to get to know other ways to understand this grain is to try the dishes at Xàtiva, which aren't Valencian, but of Alicante origin. Lest we get confused...
