Made In Spain

The Magic Of Saffron And Cervantes

Season 1, Episode 8 of 26

Jose uses widely-available Manchego cheese to prepare a salad of cheese, tomato, thyme and walnuts. He shows us the food eaten by the Man from La Mancha - Cervantes' Don Quixote. And he is witness to the wonder of saffron, when the remarkable crocus emerges from the earth and is turned into the world's most expensive spice. Jose cooks a traditional dish of rabbit with saffron rice before returning to Spain to eat a marzipan dessert.
