4.0 out of 5 stars Love and respect for Spanish food shines through, 15 Aug. 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rick Stein's Spain [DVD] (DVD)
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 think your review sums up this series pretty well. I'm a huge fan of Rick's work, and although this series is as enjoyable as you'd expect, it's probably one of his weaker offerings (by a very small margin., I would add). I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but I didn't come away from it feeling like I'd gotten the very best of what Rick was able to discover about Spain. Having said that, it's still a damn good watch, Rick is as affable and enthusiastic as always, and therefore I'd recommend without much hesitation.
