Located in the northeast of Spain, Catalonia borders France's Pyrenees mountains and has a heritage and scenery like no other place in the world. In Catalonia, Jos Pizarro travels from the impressive Gaudi architecture in buzzy Barcelona, to the Roman and Greek ruins in Girona and secluded beaches in Costa Brava to create some of the best-loved dishes from the Catalonian region at home.
Starting in the markets, Jos revels in the fresh meat, fish and vegetables, with dishes including classic Patatas Bravas, a delicious Duck Egg and Mushroom Stew, and a Rabbit Rice, typical of the region. From a Roast Chicken with Langoustines, Baby Squid with Mint that's perfect for spring, to a wintery Civet of Venison with Ceps and Mash, and the delicate Hazelnut and Plum cakes, Jos's interpretation of the regional flavours will inspire you to get into the kitchen.
Set to the backdrop of stunning location photography, Catalonia will make you feel truly transported to this special region.
