"Just finished shooting the fourth season of my seemingly endless PBS/Europe series and had a chance to view your blog.  It is great, and it's of particular interest to me because I only a few years ago visited Spain. . . For some reason, Spain was never on the list.  But it certainly is now!  And I, of course, love Spanish wines." -- Contributing writer, National Geographic Traveler; public radio's "Savvy Traveler"; and host & co-executive producer of the 52-part public television series, "Smart Travels: Europe with Rudy Maxa.

The churros photos from Chocolateria San Gines, which I sent to my mailing list of friends, generated a slew of comments. Among them are these:

Dear Mr. Dawes,

"While looking at your photos, I put on two pounds. Couldn't you have made the photos smaller, so it could have been only two ounces?"
H.G. (old friend Howard Goldberg, The New York Times)

"Gerry, Thanks for the stuff. Impressive… I downloaded all of it and I’m sure it will give me hours of pleasurable and informative reading and reminiscing. Talk to you soon,"
d (Dominic Cerrone, French Culinary Institute)

"Hola Gerry; Solo puedo decir algo: ERES COJONUDO, me encanta tu trabajo sobre los churros y todo lo que pesco que tu has hecho y firmado. Un abrazo grandote,"
Juli Soler (Owner, El Bulli)

"Gerry, as usual, EXCELLENT! Have you yet written a book? And if not, why not/You are THE authority...and if you have I WANT IT! Best from Miami,"
Viviana Carballo (Miami Herald) "MMMMMmmmmm!!"

"God, I hope and pray my future contains a trip to Spain with you! (These are the only sorts of matters in which I invoke the help of the Deity.) Warmest Regards,"
Steve Lyle, Chef-Owner, Village Restaurant, NYC

"Gerry, You old salty Spanish dog, you're breaking my heart. You're damn right I want to be in Madrid right now, stopping in for some very early morning churros y chocolate after a most enjoyable tabas bar crawl with a bunch of buddies. Thanks."
Mark Vaughan, Editor & Publisher, Santé, The Magazine For Restaurant Professionals

"Magnificent....and wonderful, wonderful. Makes me want to give up Italy for SPAIN!! made my day that much brighter." Arlyn Blake, Publications, James Beard Foundation
