21 May Exploring Culinary Essence: Fumet, the Soul of Paella and Beyond

One of these elements is Olmeda Orígenes’ Paella Stock, an aromatic broth that not only enhances the flavor of dishes but also evokes tradition, technique, and passion for cooking.


Paella Stock, especially popular in Mediterranean cuisine, is a concentrated broth obtained from the slow cooking of fish, seafood, vegetables, and spices. Its preparation requires patience and dedication, as each ingredient is meticulously combined and cooked to extract the best of its flavors and aromas.
