Andalusia. Maria Jose Sevilla ends her gastronomic journey through Spain in the southern province of Andalusia. She examines the links between the four pillars of Andalusian life - wine, food, family and religion.
For centuries Arabs, Jews and Christians lived here alongside each other - sometimes peacefully, sometimes not. Their customs and tastes interacted, leaving indelible marks on language and food. Gazpacho, cured ham, egg cakes, and chicken cooked with sherry, pine kernels and raisins illustrate the diverse cultural heritage of Andalusian cuisine. Producer Dick Foster
