discovery+ Announces “José Andrés and Family in Spain” to debut on December 27
Famed chef and humanitarian José Andrés and his three Gen Z American daughters
embark on an epic family trip across Spain, exploring the cuisine and culture
Discovery+ today announced the premiere date for the upcoming documentary series “José Andrés and Family in Spain.” The six-part series will premiere December 27 on discovery+ and follows larger than life chef and celebrated humanitarian José Andrés on a gastronomic adventure across his homeland with his three American-raised daughters, Carlota, Inés and Lucia Andrés. Their journey is a celebration of Spanish food and culture, guided by José ’s passion for food and his personal history in Spain.
In the vibrant city of Barcelona, close to where his career began at the famed el Bulli, José shows his daughters some of the most elevated, creative cuisine in the world. In Madrid, they soak up delicious classic dishes like slow cooked lamb, churros and sweets originally baked for the monarchy. As they travel through Andalusia, they indulge in coveted Bluefin tuna fresh from the sea, and in Valencia, they immerse themselves in the secrets of making the perfect Paella. Along with mouth-watering food, there are adventures, from paragliding across the volcanic landscape of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands to milking goats to learn how specialty cheese is made in Asturias. At each stop along the way, they meet local experts, celebrated chefs and old friends, who reveal insider secrets and traditions and cook exquisite dishes.
Andrés adds, “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! 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. There is no better way to learn about Spanish culture than with a fork and spoon in hand.”
José Andrés and Family In Spain is produced by Nutopia and José Andrés Media for discovery+.
