¡Buen Provecho! Florida’s Spanish Flavor premieres Sunday, June 30 at 7:00 p.m. on WPBT2. The one hour documentary explores Florida’s Spanish roots through its cuisine, while blending historical narrative with delicious recipes and vibrant locations. The documentary will premiere in celebration of the 500th anniversary of Ponce De Leon’s arrival in Florida.
Five centuries ago, Ponce de Leon arrived in “La Florida,” followed by Spanish explorers, settlers, and immigrants who would leave a lasting legacy of Hispanic influence. Hosted by James Beard award-winning chef and restaurateur, Michelle Bernstein, the documentary reveals these influences from the early conquistadors who brought seeds, spices and livestock to the wave of immigration from Spanish colonies in the Caribbean, infusing a distinctly Latin Flavor to Key West and Tampa to the more recent explosion of South American culture evident in the streets of Miami today.
As an added treat, Bernstein transports us from the past to the contemporary kitchen, where she demonstrates her take on some of the traditional Florida dishes. Her recipes will include a rich, hearty Spanish stew; a modern-day Minorcan pilau, a contemporary Cuban sandwich, and a fresh Peruvian-style ceviche.
