Although this was edible, the cost of the premium ingredients demanded that this recipe be excellent. Instead, the Spanish chorizo was lost in a sea of goat cheese (and I had tasted the goat cheese prior to cooking and had enjoyed it). The Manchego cheese held its own as a crisp topping. Bomba rice is incredibly expensive, yet I wish I had used Uncle Ben's; it would have had the same effect. Michael Voltaggio has committed a "culinary crime", that of making premium ingredients seem ordinary or even disappointing. My previous successes with Spanish chorizo and Manchego cheese had made me jump at this recipe; but in my opinion no self-respecting Spanish chef would bastardize his ingredients this way. If this had been served on Top Chef, his brother would have won. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.
