Parts Unknown: Asturias was set to air on CNN September 2018, since then we have already met a few devoted fans of the program, that help us remeber what went on during that amazing week and in exchange we help them trace Anthony Bourdain stepfoots.
 
Here in Asturias, nothing is plentiful. The people of Asturias—even in the hard times—they know what to do with nothing, and that shows you the hearts of the people in Asturias. It’s not what you want when you want it, it’s when the land wants to give it to you—the river, the mountain, the sea. You have to respect the land first, and then maybe the land will want to give you something back. In Asturias, in many of the restaurants you go to, you’re going to get that feeling. There’s something beyond just the plate you have in front of you. It’s the understanding of the happiness that hardship gives you.  - This text is excerpted from José Andrés’ narration in the episode.
