|The people of a small town in Spain heard news that her majesty the Queen would be passing their way. They decided to fix a very special dish for her, but couldn't decide on a name. Time grew short, and they decided to call the dish "For Her" (Para Ella). Over the years, the dish became known as paella, a dish first made for a queen!
