Spain - On the road again

I read about this television special - Spain, On the Road Again - in several magazines and was looking forward to seeing it but since I don't get PBS here in Spain, I was happy to find out that I can buy the episodes on iTunes. The show is hosted by Mario Batali, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Bittman and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols and shows them going all over the peninsula on a road trip tasting and experiencing Spanish cuisine.

I looked at the website earlier and from the photos, it seems that they're having a blast travelling all over Spain and having fantastic gourmet experiences. There are recipes and highlights of episodes plus blog entries from all four participants. Let's see what new treats I'll discover from their gastronomic stops.

I wrote on my blog about the episode I downloaded for free on iTunes. DO NOT buy the eps until you've seen the free one. It's painful to watch. If there is any way to simply get the recipes on PBS's site without watching it, please do so.

Thanks for the tip. I'll take your advice and watch the free episode first - why is it painful to watch? I though Batali and Bittman would be entertaining...is it Gwyneth that's irritating?
