Mario Batali Talks about Life on the Road in Spain

In case you missed the series, here's an amuse bouche to whet your appetite.

by Katherine Kims

In Condé Nast Traveler's September 2008 issue, we announced the PBS premier of Spain . . . on the Road Again. The show followed superstar chef Mario Batali, Gwyneth Paltrow, New York Times writer and cookbook author Mark Bittman, and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols, and had us salivating through Madrid, Basque Country, Cataluña, Galicia, Mallorca, and Andalucía.

Last week, at the SoHo Apple store in New York, Batali sat down with Food & Wine Restaurant Editor Kate Krader to talk about the show and take some questions from the audience. Highlights? Batali is currently working on another food travel show on Italy and Croatia; he despises durian, which he describes as smelling like a gas station bathroom; and he can attest to Gwyneth's eating stamina.
