The Chew Family, Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Michael Symon, Daphne Oz, Clinton Kelly, and Evette Rios, could not have been warmer, kinder and more generous when I came to visit! They hosted a most fun Mexican episode. I brought them the Garibaldi’s for a treat, and Mario and Carla made the most scrumptious torta, The Pepito, with me.
Here is where we made the Pepitos! Did you know Mario Batali speaks perfect Spanish?
I was delighted to visit with Lynne Rossetto Kasper from Splendid Table for the WAMU 88.5 Salon Series. We chatted about Spanish influence in Mexico and the empanadas of immaculate conception.

I had such a lovely tome visiting the Today Show, their food prep team is beyond amazing and the cast is so friendly and oh so much fun.
Here is a clip of the cooking segment, where we made three totally different recipes with corn: the wild and fun Crazy Corn, a chunky, hearty and fresh Chop Chop Salad, and a comforting Corn Torte that you can top with Poblano Rajas.

I had a blast cooking at The Today Show in New York. I made Chicken Tinga and shared just two ways, out of a thousand, that one can refashion Chicken Tinga into: Tostadas and Tinga’Dillas (Yep! made up the name!).

It was a pleasure to talk to Daniel Viotto from CNNEE about Mexican food at the White House State Dinner. A dinner offered by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for Mexican President Felipe Calderón and his wife Margarita Zavala, featuring Mexican food. We also covered the increasing appetite for Mexican food in the United States.
