Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless

A Sterling Birthday (#308)

The Bayless family is celebrating Deann's birthday. In honor of the occasion, Rick has decided to make the first dish he ever cooked for Deann: Pork in Adobo. Then it's time to think about the birthday present-and we're off to Taxco, the world-renowned silver capital of Mexico. We join Rick as he makes his way into the mountains, explores the narrow streets of this breathtaking colonial town, and investigates the colorful history of silver in Taxco, from the time of the Spanish conquest through the elegant, ultra-modern work of today's silversmiths. At a local family-style restaurant, Rick introduces us to a local specialty, Green Pozole, a rich hominy soup, and we learn to make it at home. We end up back in Chicago for a festive birthday dinner. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
