Tyler Florence gets away from the common notions of Americanised Mexican food and looks for the heart and soul of Mexican cuisine. He starts his journey in Mexico City where he explores vibrant markets and discovers just how hot chillies can get! A quick sip of tequila takes him to the heartland of Oaxaca where he finds out how tequilas sister drink, mescal, is made. Tyler samples some excellent chocolate, another favourite of Mexico. In the beautiful city of Puebla he learns how to prepare the national dish, Mole Poblano, which is turkey with chocolate sauce, reputedly invented accidentally by a local nun. His journey ends on the east coast where Mexican flavours blend with the Caribbean Sea.
