Burnt burgers are a thing of the past. Today's most fashionable barbecues are doing something very different with the quintessentially Spanish dish, paella.

Paella is not just a rice dish, it's a culinary technique that can be applied to a range of recipes, and most importantly the culture of paella is festive. We've selected the six best recipes for a summer barbecue so you can easily impress your friends.

The flavour of paella cooked outdoors over a wood-burning or charcoal barbecue is stronger than more familiar indoor-stove cooked paella. Whether you try paella rice with lobster or the Argentinian influenced 'Return to Buenos Aires' paella rice, these paella recipes, compiled by the expert chef Alberto Herraiz, are part of a tradition that goes back centuries and yet remains fun food.

For a complete guide to everything you need to know to cook authentic paella, Paella is your indespensible guide.
