Author and journalist Paul Richardson joins me to talk about life living off-grid on his farm El Chabolino (The Little Shack) in deep Extremadura.
Paul and his husband are almost completely self-sufficient and live from what they produce on their 12-acres of Spanish countryside. Which means tending fruit trees, olive groves and making wine from their own vines.
They also rear their own animals and make homemade soap!
Paul also talks about the (forgotten) region of Extremadura, its history, beautiful pueblos and of course its cuisine.
Paul is the author of A Late Dinner - one of my favourite books about Spain.
I highly recommend it if you´re into Spain and food.
As mentioned in the episode Paul will be leading a tour of Extremadura in May 2021, including the region´s history, architecture, food and wine. To find out more or book visit https://www.martinrandall.com/extremadura
