Made in Spain
Usually I write about Spain to explain it to Americans and others unfamiliar with the country's charms. This time I am pointing out how American television audiences are getting a taste of Spanish food and scenery.
The scent of saffron, the sound of flamenco, the sights of Spanish culture and a spirited chef creating classic dishes can now be found together in one captivating program. Made in Spain is a series exploring the culinary and cultural riches of Spain and is hosted by Chef José Andrés, creator of multiple celebrated Washington, D.C.-based restaurants.
José Andrés' exuberance, sense of humor and prodigious culinary talents make him the perfect emissary of the cuisine that has come to be regarded as among the most innovative in the world.
