Christopher Kimball travels to Mexico City to learn favorite dinner recipes from cooking school instructor Esmeralda Brinn and chef Adriana Luna. Back in the kitchen, Chris prepares a Chicken, Salsa Verde and Tortilla Casserole (Pastel Azteca). Then, Milk Street Cook Lynn Clark makes Pork in Veracruz Sauce (Puntas a la Veracruzana), a skillet dish featuring a tomato, olive and caper sauce.
Inspired by London’s Middle Eastern restaurant scene, Christopher Kimball and Milk Street cooks make Jerusalem-Style Mixed Grill Chicken with tahini sauce and pickled onions, and a whole roasted Cauliflower with Spiced Tahini and Garlic-Chili Oil. Finally, Milk Street Cook Bianca Borges bakes a rustic Almond-Coconut Cake with Cherries and Pistachios.
