Product Description

Product Description

Using his friend’s old campervan, Rick Stein climbs aboard to travel the length and breadth of Spain in search of a culinary duende – a flamenco term, implying a sense of soul, expression and authenticity.

From Galicia, the Basque country and Catalonia to Castilla-La Mancha and Andalusia, Rick samples his way through the specialities and hidden treats of each region, including the famous Asturian fabada, a hearty bean stew; pintxos, delicious Basque tapas; the sweet and succulent prawns of Palamós in Catalonia and food influenced by the New World in the Antigua Abaceria of Seville.

Along the way Rick savours the delights and atmosphere of the cider festival at Gijon, the snail festival in Lleida and a spectacular paella festival in Valencia, as well as observing the skills on display at vineyards, beach parties, garlic farms, secret Cabrales cheese caves and much more.

Rick Stein's Spain is part three of his European odyssey (after France and the Med). He brings his boyish enthusiasm to a trip around Spain in a friend's camper van (which actually adds little to the show). Starting in the north at Bilbao he drives through regions often not visited by documentary crews, always looking for the food eaten by locals and being delighted by the obvious enthusiasm of European people for their local foods. Sometimes I wish that he wouldn't be so defensive - like Keith Floyd before him, referring endlessly to the "salt police" and admiring the ability to smoke in Spanish restaurants, but his obvious love and respect for food and those who cook it shines through.

A good DVD transfer but no extras on the disk. A good buy.

I really like these Rick Stein cullinary travel DVD's: he comes across as someone really interested in the country, the culture as well as the cuisine, presenting regional cooking that most people prepare and cook themselves, or enjoy in down to earth, local rather than fine-dining, restaurants, bars and cafes. Spanish cooking does not have much of a reputation on the world's culinary scene, but perhaps it should have - the dishes presented in this series are varied, earthy in large part and occasionally quite hearty. Rick Stein has done what others are now emulating - a good example, "The two Greedy Italians'" exploring what is essentially cucina povera that has become, nowadays, specialist and increasingly expensive - Iberico ham, for instance, but originally belonged to the culture of an agrarian people. He has kept the food in the regions relatively basic, rooted in the culture rather than in expensive kitchens and he has done it, to my mind, with genuine empathy for the country - muy simpatico! The dishes he presents are good without being outstanding, but they fit the scene that he has created perfectly.

Well, though there is a wealth of Flash FLA at the beginning of the DVD, I found it just as interesting as the TV series, but better in a way. There are several items in each episode that I wanted to repeat and copy down how Rick actually 'knocks up' his recipes.

As for that customer who says it's not what they expected. Just what did they expect? I expected the DVDs to be the same as the TV series and they are.

We missed this show when it was broadcast so bought the DVD.

There are two DVDs with 2 episodes on each of one hour each. Highly entertaining for the scenery and factual information as well as the cookery.

This is great, one of my favorite chef's and one of my favorite countries rolled into one. Lovely food as he travels through different parts of Spain and brings you the flavours of each Region he visits.

It is just as good as I remember it on tv. We now live in Spain near the house he cooked in so loved it all the more for that. He was the right host for this show as he has an earthy approach to the country which is what is needed to really get to see these dishes cooked. It is hard to imagine some of the more egotistical tv chefs feeling comfortable or being accepted in these kitchens. All together worth watching

This Spanish odyssey lives up to his usual high standard. This time he is traveling around in a camper van and often cooks on the spot. What is so good about Rick is that he shows you all the steps involved in a dish and never leaves anything unsaid. He also takes time to interview farmers, food producers, and fellow chefs along the route, and often visits local markets. Why oh why have we given up so many of our fresh produce markets here in the UK?. I have copied many of his recipes and done them step by step (with heavy use of the Pause button on the dvd player!) then sat down to delicious authentic meals cooked a la Rick.

Another feature of Rick's dvd adventures is that they are also fascinating travelogues. It's almost worth watching them for that alone, as I do on Sunday mornings.

This is another great addition to the Rick Stein collection (and I recommend the book as well). Can't fault this, hence the 5 stars. Well done Rick, keep them coming.
