On Thursday, Discovery+ announced the premiere date for the upcoming documentary series “José Andrés and Family in Spain.” The series, which debuts on December 27, will follow the celebrated chef and humanitarian as he travels through Spain on a gastronomic adventure with his three American-raised daughters, Carlota, Inés, and Lucia Andrés. 

“Come with me and my family on an amazing journey across Spain where we will eat our way through every region and see what makes Spanish food the best in the world,” Andrés shared in a statement provided to Food & Wine

Viewers can expect plenty of fun, a few food-filled lessons, and plenty of heart along the way. For example, in the city of Barcelona, close to where Andrés’ career began at the famed el Bulli, he proudly shares with his daughters some of the best, most creative cuisine in the world. 

In Madrid, viewers can follow the family as they soak up delicious classic dishes like slow-cooked lamb, churros, and local sweets originally baked for the monarchy. 

The show continues with the family’s travel through Andalusia, where they indulge in coveted Bluefin tuna fresh from the sea, and on to Valencia, where they immerse themselves in the secrets of making the perfect paella.

In addition to learning about local delicacies, viewers can also travel vicariously through the family’s outdoor adventures, including paragliding across the volcanic landscape of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands and milking goats to make specialty cheese in Asturias. Of course, the show will introduce viewers to plenty of local experts, celebrated chefs, and old friends of the family with each episode too. 

“My daughters have heard endless stories about the people, places, and food that shaped me as a young man, but we got the chance to go visit, meet and taste everything together,” Andrés adds. “There is no better way to learn about Spanish culture than with a fork and spoon in hand.” 

Tune in on December 27 for the premiere episode, and stay tuned for further information on the show here.
