So maybe this show doesn’t exactly count as “reality cooking” but it’s one of, if not my favorite food show on television. Suffice it to say that Tony Bourdain is the reason I now write about food.
Tonight’s new episode (premiering at 10 PM EST on the Travel Channel) is Spain. I know Anthony’s been to Spain before. All I have to say is that if you think the culinary wonders of Spain can be addressed in one episode of one show, you had better watch tonight. Tony will be Tapas Bar Hopping with Albert Adria, brother of Ferran (maybe you’ve heard of him). And a tapas crawl sounds like a night of heaven if you ask me.
He’s also going to Extebarri where (source):
grilling has been raised to unthinkable zen-like heights. Hand made charcoals. A separate fire for each individual order. Separate grills — and custom designed and crafted pans and implements to best achieve perfection
Hand made charcoals sounds a bit hoity toity to me, but Anthony Bourdain doesn’t do hoity toity, not even in France, so I’ll give this place a chance.
Do any readers of this blog live in Spain or have any traveled to Spain? Does anyone have any neat tapas experiences? I’d love to hear them if you do.
