Episode 8

Ainsley explores the glorious Mediterranean region of southern Spain and the gastronomic hotspot Granada.

He's on the Moorish spice trail in search of saffron to use in his ultimate Spanish chicken with saffron potatoes.

Then he discovers the caves of the Sacromonte, which are home to a unique cook school where Ainsley has a lesson from chef Eugen in making a classic Spanish tortilla and fried aubergines.

Plus there's a lesson in Flamenco dancing, before rustling up an absolute classic, seafood paella.
