The ethnic food series is back today on Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins.  We’ll explore the wildly popular Mexican food scene.  There are many Mexican restaurants in town, but what constitutes authentic Mexican food?  And what are the differences between the cuisine in northern Mexico and the southern part of the large country?  One of our guests has traveled extensively in Mexico to meet some of its chefs.  We’ll find out what he learned and talk about some favorite Mexican food recipes.

  1. i was happy to listen to your piece on mexican cuisine and am, myself an avid, regular visitor to that country, for pleasure. for the last 20 years and annually. Pico de Gallo is not, “nose of the dog”. it literally tranlates to, “beak of the rooster”. I especially enjoyed the segment with Rick Bayless. There is some dispute to authenticism in mexican cuisine that spurns debate amongst the most knowlegable latin american chefs. Good Mexican food is not only those cuts of meats, vegetables, and other fodder that Americans are used to eating. the mexicans do not waste any part of the animal and often use what is available in nature to add nutrition to their diets, including insects, blood of the animal that has been butchered, vegetable molds such as the corn ear mold that is purple. these food items are not what most americans want to see on their plate in a local american restaurant. However, even these strange foods can be a taste and flavor delight! thank you again for an especially interesting piece totally off the politico strings.
