WHENit comes to Spain, Aus­tralia’s Tony Tan could give Rick Stein ( Global Gourmet) a run for his money in the in­side-knowl­edge stakes. Tan is gear­ing up for his next gas­tro­nomic tour, with high­lights in­clud­ing din­ners at sev­eral of Spain’s Miche­lin­starred restau­rants, trips to se­cret mar­kets and bode­gas, vis­its to pri­vate ha­cien­das, cook­ing classes and more, over 13 food-filled days from Oc­to­ber 12. ‘‘The tour is de­signed purely for the foodie with a sense of ad­ven­ture and who loves the good things in life,’’ says Tan. ‘‘It seeks to en­cap­su­late Spain on a plate and we will meet some culi­nary icons in their homes; for ex­am­ple my friend Teresa Bar­renechea, au­thor of the cook­books The Cuisines of Spain and The Basque Ta­ble, will have us at her ha­cienda for drinks and tapas.’’ There are still places avail­able on Tan’s 2011 Gourmet Tour of Spain, at $8830 twin-share, but be quick.
