The show follows the course that Rick Stein embarks on to discover if it is still the old Spain he visited as a young boy or is Spain becoming more like the new Europe. He unravels the traditions of Spain and learns if Spanish cuisine is changing or is it sill the old sort of beans, stews and quite heavy peasant food.

Discovery South Asia senior VP, GM Rahul Johri said, ?TLC was the first international lifestyle channel to introduce food programming in India. It offers the finest repertoire of food shows hosted by iconic personalities such as Nigella Lawson, Anthony Bourdain, Bobby Chinn amongst many others. We are delighted to present a new host Rick Stein who will enthrall the audience with his culinary expedition of Spain.?

Stein wanders around the country and the restaurants, giving a sneak peek into the unparalleled recipes and ingredients that are sure to excite viewers about the country?s unique cuisine. According to Rick, no one cooks fish with more respect or grills meat better.

In the past, French and Italian cooking have been seen to have more finesse, but thanks to a handful of really dedicated Spanish chefs and a growing enthusiasm for its rugged flavours, that has all begun to change. Rick introduces the viewers to contrasting recipes and offbeat ingredients, like Valencia paella, Monkfish, Manchego cheese and others.
