Daniel Klein is an inquisitive cook. Training in some of the best gastronomic destinations in the world, including Spain, France, England, India and New York. He gained first-hand experience in Michelin-starred restaurants such as "The Fat Duck" (Heston Blumenthal), "San Juan" (Fergus Henderson ), "Mugaritz" (Andoni Luis Aduriz), "Bouchon" (Thomas Keller) or "Applewood" (David Shea). This is only the first part of his life. The second part is his work as a documentary filmmaker and producer of gastronomic programs.
For two years he has published weekly videos about the "real" gastronomy of an area or a country, as part of a project that we baptize as "The perennial plate". "We travel the world exploring the wonders, complexities and stories behind the increasingly connected world food system," they say. They look for testimonies and images of what they call responsible food, products very close to the earth. They have explored the authentic gastronomy, at street level, of China, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Turkey, Argentina, Mexico, South Africa and Ethiopia.
In episode 120 of his series, Klein focused on Spain on a tour that is not exhaustive (his "tour" by car, camera in hand, is limited to the Basque Country, Galicia, Andalusia and Barcelona). His curiosity is explained in his perception of the "American chef" and his views of Spanish products, for the chosen music and, after all, because it is always interesting to see how the world views Spain.
