    Great looking meal.  When I do paella I look at this list to see what mood I am in for.  Great little reminder, 'cause there are so many variations.

    Reason for un-peeled garlic? Looks cool

    @Mickey the only reason is that is how I see it in most photos, with most of the "paper" removed and just enough left to hold it together. I also had a ton of grated garlic in the sofrito.
