“Found this in the Cooking Light Magazine and while it looks a little complicated, it sounds wonderful. Once I can gather up all the ingredients I can't wait to try this. There's another recipe by this name, but this one sounds quite different. The recipe states that Valencia is a Spanish coastal city where this dish is particularly revered - never having been there I can't say, but do like the thought.”
