MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING: Northern Spain

 

Host Pete Evans travels to beautiful Bilbao, Spain, in this week’s episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking. Pete’s here to cook up an incredible feast with star chefs Agustin Araquistain and Dani Lopez. Gathering inspiration from this incredible region, the team heads out to the seaside town of San Sebastian, where they sample an assortment of small traditional snacks called pintxos. Then they jump in to make their own versions, including Anchovies with Guindilla Chiles and Olives; Blood-Sausage-Stuffed Piquillo Peppers; Shrimp, Hard-Boiled Eggs, and Aioli; and a mouthwatering Squid with a Basque Vinaigrette. Leaving San Sebastian, they visit a farm in scenic Getaria to learn about Idiazabel, an artisanal cheese made with sheep’s milk from the farm’s herd. Heading back to San Sebastian, the chefs roll up their sleeves at the Mimo Cooking School and cook up a delicious Basque-inspired meal with Steak and Roasted Piquillo Peppers; Tear-Shaped Peas with Artichokes, Asparagus, and Carrots; Stuffed Squid with Ink Sauce; Kokotxas “Pil Pil,” and a Sheep Milk Custard with Walnut Ice Cream for dessert.

 

 

 

GREAT MUSEUMS
The Art of Islam at the Met and the Louvre

 

Today, at a pivotal moment in world history, two great museums beckon us to explore the splendor of Islamic art – lifting the veil on our shared cultural heritage. GREAT MUSEUMS: THE ART OF ISLAM AT THE MET AND THE LOUVRE showcases the objects on display in the Islamic galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and The Louvre in Paris to reveal a roadmap of connections that explains why the foreign seems familiar. Narrated by Philippe de Montebello, the former director of The Met, GREAT MUSEUMS: THE ART OF ISLAM AT THE MET AND THE LOUVRE examines the extraordinary artistic masterpieces in the museums’ Islamic Art collections, and reveals a surprising number of connections that unite Western and Islamic traditions, in art, science, and literature. The film explores the surprising cultural relationships between the Islamic and the Western worlds. The art of Islam reflects 14 centuries of changing political and cultural landscapes across three continents. The term “Islamic art” – coined by 19th century art historians – includes all art produced in Muslim lands from the 7th century forward, from Spain to Morocco, Egypt, the Middle East, Central Asia and India, to the borders of China. Universal museums like The Louvre and The Met help dispel the idea that cultures are exclusive, when, in fact, they are intertwined and connected.
