We're taking you on an eating trip to Mexico City this week. Lynne and our managing producer, Sally Swift, recently returned from a week of total culinary immersion. We have it all: the tastes, the sounds and the generosity of local experts, including a lesson in authenticity from Diana Kennedy as she opens her Mexican eco house to us. It's an hour you won't want to miss!
While we were there, we took photos and kept a travel diary of our experiences, including notes on the markets and restaurants we visited.
This is one of those rare recipes, surprising in its flavors and wonderful in its simplicity. Get the full recipe
