When you want a taste of something spicy, sweet, rich and refreshing, all at the same time, head south. Waaay south to Central, South America and the Caribbean. In this episode, we’re exploring the flavors and textures enjoyed by our southern neighbors. The basis of much of Mexican cuisine are the tortillas, sopas, gorditas and tamales made with cornmeal dough and host Cat Neville’s first stop is with Mission Taco to see how they make fresh masa from local non-GMO corn, then enjoy a taste of Cuba at Kansas City’s Plantain District, known for its perfectly layered Cuban sandwich. At Mango in St. Louis, Cat learns about ingredients native to Peru and then she heads to the kitchen to make Brazilian-style acarajé with shrimp salad.
