Experience Europe with the ever-charismatic Nico Bolzico, Bistronomia co-owner Dani Aliaga, and Chef Willy Trullas Moreno as they bring their appetite to the streets of Spain in search of ‘sexy food’ in the two-episode feature of Metro Channel’s travel-food show “The Crawl” this September.
The Spain expedition is sure to be filled with fun as the food lovers trio tests out the local cuisine and explore inspiring sight-seeing spots and restos in three cities—Barcelona, Madrid, and Logrono.
Relish great architecture and check out tourist spots such as La Sagrada Familia, Puerta de Alcala, and Avignon street; and visit renowned Spanish restaurants such as Disfrutar, Xarcuteria La Pineda, Bar La Plata, El Botin, and DSTAgE. Here, the gentlemen dish out on mouthwatering eats such as bacon butter, famous tapas, paella, boqueron, butifarra, croquettes, and hippo cheeks.
As Spain is the third largest wine producer in the world, Nico, Dani, and Chef Willy did not miss trying their hand at the intricate art of wine-making. Visiting a number of wine cellars, they make sure they get to know wine in a different light—whether red, white, or rose—through their journey.
Roast suckling pig or cochinillos is a famous Castilian dish, and is one to watch out for in “The Crawl” in Madrid. The dish is mainly piglet meat coated in batter, with pork fat, a bit of laurel leaves and twigs, and is traditionally prepared in an earthenware pot and served hot with a crispy crust. The lot also winds down for beer and cider at La Tita Rivera, a famous green oasis in the middle of the city, and enjoys a lively flamenco performance.
Discover sexy Spanish eats and zesty sights with Nico, Dani, and Chef Willy in “The Crawl: Spain,” premiering on September 1 and 8 (Saturday) at 8 PM. Replays are available every Sunday (10 AM, 6 PM), Monday (8AM, 10 PM), Wednesday (12 NN), Friday (7 PM), and Saturday (9AM).
