Bahia is a type of paella rice, short-grain and quick-cooking, carrying a Denomination of Origin from Valencia. It is very similar to Calasparra rice from Murcia. Presented in an attractive cotton sack which helps to keep the rice protected, dry and not humid. Bahia rice is used widely throughout Spain for paellas. It is a good alternative to the more expensive Bomba rice as it is especially well suited to making larger paellas. This is because it requires less tending when being cooked than Bomba rice and has a shorter cooking time. Bahia rice doubles in size when cooked, absorbing a lot of flavour from the stock being used.
