Jose Goes Nuts

Season 1, Episode 22 of 26

A return to Valencia makes a star out of the region's nuts. Jose whips together a nutty dessert called postre de turron, then heads to Valencia to show how turron a nutty paste is made, starting with the beautiful almond trees in Jijona and ending in the factories and stores that make and sell this regional Christmastime delicacy. He even visits a "horchateria" where tiger nuts are made into a creamy drink! There are stops at great wineries along the way, time out to cook up a delicious Valencian noodle dish known as Fideua, and a stop at the wild, fire-filled Valencia Fallas festival. Jose winds up at one of Spain's most famed restaurants, El Poblet where he watches his old friend, chef Quiqui Dacosta, prepare a dish made with real gold.
