Cooking Channel Embarks on International Culinary Adventure in New Series "From Spain With Love"

Lauded Food Writer and Expert on Spanish Cuisine Annie Sibonney Leads Gastronomic Journey Through Spain, Premiering Saturday, May 28th at 9:30pm ET/6:30pm PT

New York - April 28, 2011 - Cooking Channel takes an intimate food lover's odyssey through the rich culinary culture of Spain in the new series From Spain With Love, premiering Saturday, May 28th at 9:30pm ET/6:30pm PT. As seen through the eyes of food writer Annie Sibonney, an expert in Spain's regional and haute cuisine, the series uses food as a window into the very heart of Spain and its people and uncovers the diverse culinary traditions of the country.

From the food mecca of San Sebastian and the quaint fishing villages of Galicia, to cosmopolitan Barcelona and the bustling excitement of Madrid, From Spain With Love explores the deep-rooted connection between the land, the farmer, the fisherman, the ingredient, the home cook and the chef across Spain's many regions. As Annie eats and cooks her way through Spain, audiences will taste the food and savor each experience with her.

In the premiere episode, Annie visits the Basque Country, a fiercely independent region with more cooks per capita than anywhere else in the world and its own style of uniquely inventive cuisine that put Spain on the culinary map. Annie breaks through barriers at a men's only Gastronomic society; indulges in her favorite Basque dish, cod kokotaxas, prepared by Basque chef Andoni; enjoys a Basque-style tapas crawl; and cooks alongside the "godfather" of modern Basque cuisine, chef Juan Mari Arzak, whose reinvention of traditional Basque cooking revolutionized the culinary world.

Annie Sibonney is a food writer and expert on Spanish regional and haute cuisine. She has spent the past five years eating her way through Spain in search of the most memorable meals and ethereal culinary pleasures. Along the way, she has forged relationships and friendships with world-renowned chefs, local characters, food critics, historians, wine makers and artisans, all rooted in a shared love for celebrating life through memorable food, wine, travel, friends and experiences. Annie, who is based in Toronto, launched Relish Culinary Tours in 2007, which designs exclusive, fully arranged, escorted gastronomic excursions to Spain and Italy for private groups and individuals as hungry for adventure as she is.

From Spain With Love is produced by Shaftesbury, in association with Henry Less Productions.
