A Pilgrim's Progress in Food: Galicia

José explores the food of Galicia where pilgrims have traveled for centuries. He cooks a simple tapa of green Padrón peppers stuffed with cheese, as well as the traditional pilgrim’s meal of a chicken empanada, or turnover. He fishes for octopus off the region’s rocky coast, eats a traditional Galician dish of boiled octopus with Spanish paprika, and drinks a glass of the pilgrims’ flambéed punch.
