I joined Indian-American cookbook author Anupy Singla to talk about the fusion of Latin and Asian food on NPR‘s Tell Me More, with host Celeste Headlee. I also gave them a taste of the Asian influence on Mexican cuisine with my Green Beans with Peanuts and Chile de Arbol. If you missed us on the radio, listen in right here…

NPR Tell Me More: When Asian and Latin Food Collide
30 MAY 2013
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.
Asian demographic influence has a long and storied past in Mexico: Filipinos came through the Pacific trade on huge Galleons, Chinese communities worked to build Mexican railroads, and Japanese settlers found work on coffee plantations. Mexico’s culinary heritage is no stranger to this influence—dishes have benefited from their steaming, drying and salting techniques, as well as the spices. Join me as I explore the heritage of Asian cuisine in Mexico through dishes like Dried Shrimp Soup, Green Beans with Salted Peanuts and Chile de Arbol, Mexican-style Mongolian Beef, Spicy Tofu, and Sticky Rice Playero.
