Practice Your Paella (Spanish Lessons Come Later)

Le Creuset’s paella pan arrives just in time for hearty cooking in cooler weather.

Want perfect paella every time? Le Creuset’s new cast-iron pan ($235) retains heat efficiently and helps to ensure a crispy layer of toasted rice, the hallmark of authentic paella for home cooks that won’t settle for less. Drop by the Leawood shop (4549 W. 119th St.) to pick one up, then head over to nearby La Bodega for paella, and, newly inspired, try your hand at capturing the flavors of Spain in your kitchen.
