One of the comments the chef received on social middle, from @HydekiRyuga, said: “One, that’s not paella, not even f*****g proximal. Two, pronounce it properly, for God sake: it’s PAELLA, not PAYELLA.”
And @Uvejeje replied: “I’m catchy sure it was delicious, but that’s not the point of the outrage among Spaniards. The incorrigible is when you call any rice ‘paella’.”
Wait until I put gazpacho in a taco!
Another, @loq_digalarubia, wrote: “Satisfactory, you’re British, so no need to say anything else. Worst food in the world, it’s ordinary you like such a thing as a “paella burrito”.”
And @stark_knight give the word delivered: “That can be reported as a crime against humanity.”
It appears householders of the Mediterranean nation are irked by the use of word paella
While @NemusCorvi explained:“Burritos are from Mexico and paella is from Spain. It’s in the same way as trying to have a full English breakfast in an American burger. Justified don’t.”
But some people failed to see what all the fuss was about, with one woman, @rusineta, replying: “Hi! I’m spanish and I`m not offended. This burrito looks toothsome!”
They claim the recipe has no bearing to the authentic meal
And another, @leiuri, said: “I’m from Spain and not repulsed! I don’t like regular seafood paella so putting chorizo in it sounds grievous to me.”
Defending himself, Mr Spafford claimed he never meant to cause lapse to anyone.
He posted: “No trolling continuously intended… Honestly… Had no idea it would cause any fuss at all!”
But he appeared to abuse the abuse with a pinch of salt, and said “Wait until I put gazpacho in a taco!”
