World-Class Paella Dinner Course at Estilo Aceh in Kyoto's traditional townhouse [estilo h / Marutamachi

The World Paella Day Cup, a world paella competition, is held annually in Valencia, Spain, the birthplace of paella. This year, the fourth edition of the World Paella Day Cup was held in Valencia, Spain. Chef Kohei Hatashita from Kyoto was chosen to represent Japan in the competition, bringing with him two original paellas that combined the Japanese flavor with the culture and spirit of Spain. He won the tournament in Valencia, where representatives from various countries gathered, and became the first Japanese chef to win the competition. I want to connect people with people, Japan with Spain, and the world with paella. I want people to enjoy the joy of sharing paella with their loved ones," says Hatashita. At estilo h, where Mr. Hateshita serves as chef, a dinner course featuring both types of paella, which won the world's top prize, will be available for a limited time only until mid-December.

(Left) Paella with eel and five kinds of mushrooms: Eel cooked in the Japanese way, combined with five kinds of mushrooms, and finished with Ario sauce mixed with Sansho (Japanese pepper) in soy sauce. (Right) Paella with duck, leeks and Valencia orange. The theme is duck leeks, a familiar dish in Japan. We added our ingenuity to this combination and made it into a paella.

In Chef Hatashita's style, the broth slowly extracted from the bones and kelp of the hamo (conger eel) is used as the base for all paella. The saffron and the hamo's flavor are actually a perfect match! The course menu, assembled with his solid skills and experience in French, Italian, and Japanese cuisine, is sure to delight both the eyes and the palate, as well as the soul, with its surprising combination of Spanish and Japanese flavors in each dish.

In addition to paella, the menu features a combination of Japanese ingredients and Spanish cuisine. Menu items other than the winning paella are subject to change depending on the season.

I want to share authentic and delicious paella throughout Japan. I don't call paella "cooking", I call it "baking". The "socarra," or roasted rice, the amount of flavor, and the hardness of the rice. Please try [estilo h's] paella for yourself," says Hateshita. Take this opportunity to enjoy the paella that has conquered the world.
