Foodies and travel show enthusiasts will enjoy Made In Spain, a combination travel-cooking show hosted by world-renowned chef Jose Andres. Each episode finds Chef Andres visiting a particular exotic corner of Spain and exploring both avant-garde and traditional Spanish food and wine culture. Chef Andres then recreates the dishes in his home kitchen, or in a restaurant kitchen, occasionally using substitutions and offering mini cooking-technique lessons in the process. The show is co-produced by Andres and ThinkFoodGroup, and each episode runs roughly twenty-five minutes. Travel segments and brief documentaries about Spanish history and geography are sandwiched between demonstrations and exuberant, up-close food prep. During episodes in which he prepares food at home, Chef Andres dresses very casually, effectively challenging the conventional uniform associated with haute cuisine chefs. Each episode begins with him zeroing in on some region of Spain, giving some historical background, citing current food trends, and drawing attention to a specific ingredient/dish. Chef Andres may then capitalize upon previously mentioned fare, or use it as inspiration to build an entirely new dish. On 'Paella Day,' an episode that focuses on the cuisine of Valencia, Chef Andres virtually escorts the viewer on a tour of the region. He showcases two of its notable, relevant attractions: paella restaurants and rice fields. He visits several of them, chatting with proprietors and workers. Then he returns home to his wife and three daughters, all of whom are prepping for a backyard barbecue. Chef Andres progresses through his 'red paella' recipe whose stars include lobster and wild mushroom. He takes a little time to give advice for choosing saffron. He then prepares yogurt and honey clementine tapas, succeeded by a scene featuring the special groves in Spain where these super sweet clementines are grown. Last, Chef Andres fishes for eel and cooks them up, a dish called All-i-Pebre (garlic and chili w/eel). He thanks viewers for watching and exhorts them to try for themselves.
