“All in the kitchen”: the paella recipe from Cyril Lignac: Femme Actuelle Le MAG

Friday June 12, for the very last live broadcast of “Tous en cuisine”, the M6 ​​chef put the dishes in the big dishes … By preparing a sumptuous paella live. Generally long and tedious to cook, the paella goes on TV in an express version. It is not the first time that the Aveyron has put Spanish cuisine in the spotlight. Previously, he had delighted us with his chocolate sauce churros. In his show, the French chef has often given pride of place to world cuisine. A Japanese curry, an English dessert with the Eton Mess, a Thai broth, a Greek tzatziki, an American brownie or even alle vongole pasta typical of Italian and particularly Neapolitan cuisine.

Creative, the chef dares all marriages and all associations, even if it means making the purists react, as with his vegetarian couscous or his exotic bouillabaisse. But this time, no mango in his paella. You will find most of the traditional ingredients of this Spanish specialty. Aficionados may regret the absence of peas and mussels, but who will prevent them from adding them if they care so much? This unique dish, like tajine or pot-au-feu, takes its name from the dish used to prepare it. If you can quite easily prepare it in another container, it should be large enough to simmer all the ingredients. And, ideally, allow a nice training. Festive, delicious and within reach of amateur cooks, Cyril Lignac’s paella may well be among our favorite recipes this summer. Thank you Chef !
