MEXICOONE PLATE AT A TIME WITH RICK BAYLESS
Episode 9: Dessert Oasis
Tropical Mexico holds the main ingredients for this show, including the amazingly versatile coconut palm. From tips on how a palm tree can be a castaway’s best friend, to the restorative powers of a coco de agua vendor, to a luxurious Coconut Pie recipe from the Yucatan, Rick gets inside the coconut like nobody else. Other sweet inspirations include Frontera Grill’s famous Chocolate Pecan Pie
. And for the perfect complement to dessert, Rick takes off to get some coffee, starting with a visit to a Mexican coffee plantation and ending on the beach for a very rustic cup of Café de Olla over a Veracruz campfire.
