Chef Jose ́ Andre ́s explores the food of the magical, mystical region of Galicia where pilgrims have traveled for centuries.

He fishes for octopus off the region's rocky coast, eats a traditional Galician dish of boiled octopus with Spanish paprika, and drinks a glass of the pilgrims' flambe ́ed punch.
