HOUSTON: Saturdays and Sundays 4-5 p.m. on NewsRadio 740 KTRH
It’s our Sunday show this week that gets preempted by Astros baseball, just in time to let us celebrate the Fourth of July. So we’ll concentrate on our Saturday show. This week we take a detailed look at the foods and wines of Spain, courtesy of a recent tasting-driven trade show that came to Texas with the express purpose of making new believers. Beginning with the Spanish consul general, for whom the state once called New Spain is the largest of six he covers, we make our way through ham producers, fish marketers, vegetable growers and of course makers of those wonderful Spanish wines. Many of us know and love the wines of Rioja and Ribera del Duero but those are only a couple viticultural areas among dozens, perhaps hundreds, that are worthy of our attention.
