I'm a travel show fiend--I love travel--it's the most important thing in my life, and in recent years I haven't missed this travel show. But, this year I'm proud to say I'm joining the list of esteemed guest speakers, and cooking on the Flavors of the World culinary stage.
On Saturday at 3p.m., I'll be preparing two types of chiles rellenos from a pair of recipes from my family in Aguascalientes, Mexico : chile relleno de queso con caldillo (cheese stuffed pepper with tomato soup), and chile ancho relleno de frijol (ancho chile stuffed with refried beans), and a Baja table accompaniment of chiles gueros, or blonde chiles. My demo will focus on chile as a staple food, and its unique place in Mexican cuisine.
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday, at 11a.m., it's La Guerrerense--yes the legendary Doña Sabina Bandera and her daughter Mariana Oviedo joining me on stage. They will be plating and serving their famous seafood tostadas, while I pour the tequila and join in the fun. You will be enjoying sea urchin tostadas, on the house.
I look forward to sharing a taste of Aguascalientes and Ensenada with you, and hope we get to say hello.
