Rick Bayless Takes Us On Location in Mexico, And It’s Delicious
January 27, 2016 Leave a Comment
It’s not unusual for Rick Bayless to be in Mexico recording a new season of Mexico: One Plate at a Time (full disclosure: to me, the best cooking show on television.) What is unusual – and really exciting for those of us who are stuck back here in the wind, snow and cold of Wisconsin – is that Chef Bayless is taking us all along on this production with daily behind the scenes video updates from each unique – and delicious – location he and his crew are visiting.
You can watch all of them, follow along with the adventure as it happens and share your comments directly with Bayless and his team on his Facebook page.
But, I also wanted to share a couple of my favorite video dispatches that have already arrived.
Take this video from yesterday, for example. Bayless visited a traditional purveyor of smoked meat in Temozon, a kitchen that makes some of his favorite food. But, the full production was interrupted by the nuisance – and subsequent coughing – of one of the main ingredients, smoke. Not to be denied, Bayless grabbed a camera and takes us back inside the smokehouse via the web to see the centuries-old process behind the tasty treats.
