Neven's Spanish Food Trails | Wed at 10P & Sun at 5:30P
Popular Irish chef Neven Maguire returns to Spain to explore the spectacular Northern regions of Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia in this six-part culinary adventure series. Just like the landscape, the food varies greatly in each region, from the mountainous Picos De Europa National Park, to the stunning coastal Rías Baixas. Neven tries a huge range of local produce, from grilled sardines, molasses and churros, to tuna heart, sherry, Iberico ham, Seville orange marmalade and Cordoba’s famous tomato soup. Neven also creates a new recipe every week, inspired by the food he has discovered in each location.
The Triana district of Seville is the edgier part of the city, well known for producing bullfighters and flamenco dancers and Neven meets Christina Heeren, an American woman who set up a school for flamenco dancers, guitarists and singers.
When the Spanish went to America they left from Cadiz, and the foods they brought back, such as corn, tomatoes, potatoes and tobacco came back to Europe via the city. Situated on the Atlantic, Cadiz has a different character to those located on the shores of the Mediterranean.
