  1. I haven’t watched this yet but my wife did last night. Guanajuato is one of the jewels in Mexico, a nation with many in its crown. We have visited here several times but not in recent years where we just go to the lively PV. But Guanajuato and Patzcuaro are my special places. It is a shame so few Americans have gone there. We live in Connecticut but Mexico lives in my heart. Gracias!

    good . Would you happen to know what Ingridents were in it I would love to make it.

  4. Pati,

    I just relocated from Chicago inner city to California, Berkeley and thanks to that event I’ve found your TV series! I watch and thoroughly enjoy your show quite often, and tonights episode shot straight to my heart and stomach! You see, more than 20 years ago — and during my very impressionable years I lived briefly in Guanajuato GTO. While I was only there 6 months I fell in love with the locals, the local and national culture, the food, drinks, architecture, music and people. So in this episode I caught glimpses of poignantly familiar fountains, steps, plazas, callejones, el Jardin de la Paz, references to the Alondiga, Pipila, and silver mines. No mummies?!

    So this is fun, my first day in Mxo (having been told never to eat street food or sea food (unless I was to find myself at the ocean) I walked into the Mercado and found a family selling coctel de camarones; camarones, slices of aguacate, pico de gallo que tenia un montón de cilantro, un trago de tequila y un poco limón. Loved it, and no problems!

    So, as a tribute to that experience in Guanajuato and your street-easts episode, I am going to dive into your recipes starting with that episode.

    Meanwhile have you done chilaquiles within a show? In the GTO capital is was always Green or Red, huevo estrellado, garnished with beans, white onions, tons of cilantro, avocado, and a side of pico de gallo, and for some reason they always served me saying it was muy biern para la cruda!


  5. Hola from Houston, Pati!

    I’m going to visit my wife’s family in Guadalajara next week and we’re going to spend 3 days in Guanajuato. I’m going to hunt down the guy who made that amazing torta sandwich to show him how famous he is!
