Food Arts: Catalunya

Using a Catalan olive oil, José prepares two tapas: marinated olives and toast with cheese and anchovy. He takes us to his beloved market in Barcelona, and gets inspired to cook a creamy rice dish of mushrooms, artichokes and cuttlefish. Back in Spain he shows us two great Catalan artists: Salvador Dali and his own culinary mentor, Ferran Adrià, hailed by critics as the world’s most creative chef.
