Customer Reviews

Beautiful, Fun, and Worth Every Minute!

Mario, Mark, Gwyneth, and Claudia are both funny and fun as they road trip through the beautiful Spanish country-side. Enjoy the views, enjoy the food, and enjoy the interaction between them; it truly is the road trip of dreams. And the best part is you come away feeling like you're there. If you like to travel, or you like to eat, or even if you like to learn, this show will astound you. I smiled for the whole hour, and didn't even realize until after the fact that I didn't have a commercial during which to rest. Didn't need one; it's that good.

Amazing!

Simply amazing. The grapics and camera-work are superb. The variation from history, to food, to talking is truly refreshing. This show is very much a hybrid of your typical cooking show, "Diary of a Foodie" and something inexplicable. Mario, Claudia, Mark, Gweneth are truly entertaining and educational. Also, their website provides a large cache of information, ranging from recipes to travel tips. I can only hope that they expand this series to include Italy, France, etc...

A little Mario goes a long way!

It speaks volumes about the beauty, food and culture of Spain that I have become hooked on a series featuring one of my least favorite TV personalities: Mario Batali. Here, he's at his slovenly, grating and self-satisfied worst...complete with massive belly and those silly looking orange crocs (watching him eat takes courage). Still, I bought a season pass for the series because, Mario aside, it's a fascinating concept. I have revised my opinion of Gwyneth Paltrow, who comes across as genuine, entirely normal and truly humble here. She is fluent in Spanish and has a definite respect for the people and culture of Spain. They are joined on their journey by Mark Bittman, a food writer for the New York Times, and multilingual Spanish actress Claudia Bassols. While Bittman runs the gamut from charming grouch to creepy and cloying, Bassols is the real revelation here. She is beyond beautiful but so effortlessly delightful that you get the distinct impression she has no idea just how gorgeous she actually is. She is an absolute delight. The show is sponsored by Spain's tourism board but, honestly, it doesn't seem like a paid commercial in any way. Batali aside, it's a lighthearted, easy going and enjoyable way to explore a fascinating country. It's definitely moved Spain to the top of my "must visit" list.
