Episode 14

Its all about Mexico.  There’s been a lot of talk recently about the increased popularity of Mexican food in the U.S., so Rick and Steve invited Andrew Knowlton, Restaurants and Drinks editor at Bon Appetit in New York City and Besha Rodell, Restaurant Critic for L.A. Weekly, to see if there is a revolution in high-end Mexican Food, and to discuss the state of Mexican food in the three largest U.S. cities.  Then Rick invites the chef and owner of Salpicon to the test kitchen to see what she can do in a magnifico poblano challenge.  Travel to Oaxaca with Rick, as he sits down with Iván Saldaña, one of the master minds behind Montelobos Mezcal, to talk about the science behind making the alcohol, mezcal.  Rick and the Bayless family experience the sites, sounds and tastes of the Oaxaca Taco Corridor.  And a final Bite in the kitchen of Xoco here in Chicago, where the master shows the student how to fully appreciate and eat a Cochinita Pibil Torta.
