I’LL HAVE WHAT PHIL’S HAVING invites audiences to join an international culinary exploration with Phil Rosenthal, creator of the television hit EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, and one of Hollywood’s funniest producers.

This six-part series follows host Rosenthal as he explores culinary capitals of the world and dines on regional specialties, all while pushing the boundaries of his palate – and the viewer’s – in his funny, unforgettable travels.

In his search for the best of a city’s specialty, or one of its most unusual cuisines, Rosenthal entertains the audience while making connections all over the world.

Rosenthal sets his sights on kitchens both on and off the well-worn gastronomic path, where he meets those who are keeping traditions alive and creating new ones.

Host Phil Rosenthal explores the food and flavors of Barcelona.

Rosenthal is a food enthusiast, but as he was growing up, he was not exposed to any adventurous eating:

He says, “My mother was not a fantastic cook. Our oven had a setting for ‘shoe.’ But I’ve always loved family, food, travel, and humor. That’s how I connect with people. I'm not your typical adventurer. So, I’m hoping folks will look at a nebbish like me exploring the world and trying new things and say, ‘If that guy can go outside, maybe I can, too.’”
