The "Food Drive" in Spain

do you really want to go to Spain? well, it's the 2nd most popular tourist destination in the world. no wonder because it's got great spots, awesome natural views and of course, food! and with the Spanish Tourism Board offering us the beauty of Spain, Asian Food Channel (AFC) provides us a show that will make us appreciate it more.

Spain... On the Road Again is a 13-part series of a road trip to Spain and its food offerings with a spactacular cast of Chef Mario Batali, Gwyneth Paltrow, New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols. they will take us to the food corners of Spain and we'll be able to explore their culture, history and of course, food. it airs every Tuesday at 9PM on the Asia Food Channel, SkyCable Channel 58.

during a special event at Spotlight in Chino Roces Ext. in Makati City, a feast of Spanish food and culture were co-presented by fellow Filipinos, authentic Spanish style. an intermission of Flamenco dance, Spanish songs, and great food made by Chef Alexandra from Tapella by Gaudi were experienced by the curious and food-fascinated guests.

Chef Alexandra made paella, a mixture of rice and yummy stuff and presented in vibrant colors! but there's a special dish she made by just covering a huge fish with just only salt! i tell you, it's so delicious i forgot its name. haha! and best of all, a sip of Spanish wines to finish it all.

with the cool stuff we've learned at the presentation of Spain... On the Road Again, we also brought cool stuff home! thanks to Asian Food Channel, Tapella by Gaudi, BPI Mastercard, Gastro Chef, Trucco, Fuego Hotels and Properties, L’oreal, and Amoroso.
