"This series is excellent! Jose Andres has a passion for the traditional foods of Spain and for sharing everything from cooking techniques to the various traditional foods of Spain. He covers every region with excitement, it like taking a virtual vacation and learning to cook a few dishes along the way. Jose Andres educates you about the different regions and introduces you to the locals while learning about the beautiful dishes they cultivate. Wonderful series for anyone interested in cooking or in travel to Spain."

"It was about time to have such a wonderful program on Spain and its great gastronomic diversity.
Chef José Andrés is a great host and the perfect ambassador for everything Spanish. He is very enthusiastic and entertaining without being annoying or condescending. The recipes shown are very simple and tasty. The background music is also very good.
I am a big fan of the program and I am looking forward for the second season."
A great way to sample Spain from your living room or kitchen

Wonderful series ruined by distracting music

"José Andrés is an amazing chef and a tremendous personality. There is nobody doing lifestyle television in America who's better qualified to talk about Spain or more fun to watch. The episodes are well thought out and beautifully shot.
But none of that matters due to the loud, mediocre, pseudo-indie music layered over 70% of the action. It's distracting to the point of being completely unbearable -- like sitting down to a beautiful meal at a 3-star restaurant and then finding that the people next to you can't stop farting."
