The 1 Ingredient That Makes the McCafé Shamrock Drinks Different Than the Shake

Gwyneth, Batali, Bittman, and Claudia Hit the Road

A few months ago, I mentioned that Gwyneth Paltrow was heading to Spain with Mario Batali in order to film a show for PBS. Well, for all of you who thought it was too crazy to be true, I have news for you: They've started filming!

That's right, according to the Associated Press, Paltrow and Batali — along with Mark Bittman (aka the New York Times's "Minimalist") and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols — are spending much of the next four months cruising around Spain in a fleet of Mercedes. Their producer, Charles Pinksy, hasn't told them what their itinerary is, but cameras in the cars will capture their reactions.

"It is going to be a road trip as if anybody else was taking a road trip, although we've planned things out. We've got some special things that maybe other tourists might not get a chance to do, as well," Pinsky told a press conference Tuesday in Madrid.

I don't know about you, but I am definitely going to tune in. Batali and Bittman are always worth watching — especially together — and the addition of Paltrow and Bassols should make for very entertaining television. What do you think? Are you going to watch?

I'll watch anything with Mario Batali in it. He's an amazing chef, extremely knowledgable, and just seems like a cool guy that you'd want to hang out with.
