The Mexican state of Veracruz has gifted the world so many delicacies – jalapenos, vanilla, and the song “La Bamba”. Serving as the largest port in the Americas during colonial times meant that ingredients from Africa, Europe, and South America were frequently passing though and leaving their mark on the local cuisine. Join Gino Garcia for a deep look into delicious dishes Veracruz has to offer. On the menu: asado de puerco estilo Veracruz (banana leaf-roasted pork in smoky chile adobo); chiles rellenos con minilla (shrimp-stuffed jalapeno chiles); arroz con plátanos (rice with fried plantains and cream); and frijoles negros con hoja santa (black beans cooked with holy leaf).
