Paella follow-up from multimadrid.com

Thanks for the suggestion...there have been a few posts, one refuting the "par ella" contraction theory, one amusing. And this one, which certainly seems feasible (when you consider hamburger and other foods that took-on the name of a city/region associated with them -- rightly or wrongly). Sorry for the format...they really like their emoticons and animation on that board...it's like the antithesis of this one!

The word 'paella' began to be used in castillian from the year 1900 as a sinonym for valencian style rice. Paella in catalán means frying pan, therefore, the valencians give the name "paella" to the pan they prepare it in.
