Peter opens his mind and heart as locals across the country invite him into their homes and kitchens introducing him to the fun, vibrancy and unique flavours that all combine to create the most delicious Mexican food.Mexico has given the world some of the world's most loved ingredients including tomatoes, chillies, avocado, vanilla, chocolate or that most staple of ingredients; corn, but never has Peter seen them all used quite like this! From tacos to tamales, salsas to sizzling pork, Peter discovers it all before creating his own versions. From the deserts of the north to the jungles down south, Mexico's forever changing landscape provides a backdrop like no other.Mexico is one of the most successfully multicultural countries in the world, and in Veracruz it's particularly apparent. The food here is a mix of Spanish, Mexican and Afro-Caribbean and Peter will sample everything from spicy to sweet. The second most expensive crop in the world is vanilla and it originated here in Veracruz. Peter visits a plantation to see how this fragrant orchid is grown. Chilli lovers can't get enough of chipotle, and Peter will discover the technique used to turn jalapenos into this prized product.
