Neven Maguire returns to RTÉ One tonight with a brand new episode of his Spanish Food Trail.

This year, the Cavan man is exploring Andalusia, a region that is larger than the island of Ireland and very popular with the Irish people.

From the ‘Tropical Coast’ to the cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville and the wooded and mountainous Huelva region, Neven finds the most delectable treats for his food tour.

Tonight, our host will visit Granada to start the day the traditional way with Churros – deep fried batter served with thick hot chocolate.

Most visitors go to the Alhambra but Neven visits the tombs of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, the monarchs who united Spain and ended Moorish rule in Granada.  

Cold filtered coffee, cakes dedicated to a Pope, and a tapas tour of the city are all on the menu. Every Spanish city claims to have its own unique form of tapas, and Granada’s claim is that it serves free tapas – a claim which turns out to be true.

Watch Neven's Spanish Food Trails tonight, Tuesday 18th September at 8.30pm on RTÉ One.
