DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Tuesday - RICK STEIN’S SPAIN, ABC1, 8.30pm

BRITISH neo-neo coloni­sa­tion con­tin­ues, with Rick Stein now oc­cu­py­ing Spain. He’s press­ing to­wards the Basque re­gion, and try­ing to re­call an an­cient child­hood mem­ory of a fam­ily hol­i­day to Laredo when he was eight and had squid and Coke for the first time. They drove over from Eng­land in his fa­ther’s blue Jaguar Mk VII but 50 years later the ho­tel’s not there any more. Still, an­chovies are, and they’re the ham of the sea, Rick says. You know how this goes: he cooks, eats, talks to lo­cals. Spain’s lovely, Rick’s en­thu­si­as­tic. He winds up on the Cata­lan coast, be­cause he needs the sea.
