The coastal city of Valencia is Spain’s third largest city and home to a vibrant food scene. To start we’ve got a refreshing, chilled gazpacho soup made from tomato, cucumber and peppers with some bread to thicken. Next, one of Valencia’s most famous exports - and to some the national dish of Spain - paella!  It’s the perfect dish to share on date night, even if you’re fighting over those crispy bits at the bottom of the pan! Finally a zingy orange granita flavoured with orange flowers and cinnamon and served with slightly bitter caramelised oranges.

A lovely birthday meal for my husband during lockdown - especially as we had a trip to Spain cancelled. Made the dessert with grapefruit instead of oranges and was very nice too. (Husband went out for oranges and came back with grapefruit insisting they were oranges but it worked out OK!)
