Where: Sueca, Valencia, Spain

When: September

The Sueca Fiesta del Arroz, or Rice Festival is one of, if not the biggest of all of the events in Valencia. Unsurprisingly, the main event on the program is the International Paella Competition, in which the dishes must be cooked with rice grown in the Valencian region of La Albufera. The remaining ingredients can come from anywhere in the world, the same as the participants competing for the top prize.

Marvel at some of the quick footwork demonstrated at the Fiesta del Arroz here, but not the camerawork I’m afraid!

Get yourself cooking your own Paellas (if not dancing) with these fab books:
