Watch our Laura@Home segment as she prepares a squash-serving bowl for Chef Ray’s Garden Winter Squash Soup. Want that extra nutty flavor? Try roasting the bowl in the oven!

Mexico- On Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless
Sun, 08/03/2014 - 7:00pm
#801 – “Mediterranean Baja”
The Baja California peninsula boasts a climate reminiscent of those on the Mediterranean Sea. Thousands of olive trees and vineyards in Northern Baja capture the distinctiveness of this region of Mexico. We explore the amazing grilled octopus at Tres Virgenes in La Paz and enjoy mesquite-grilled lamb with 9-chile mole sauce. Rick makes tacos of kale and spinach with a green garlic mojo from the gardens of the renowned spa Rancho La Puerta. In Tijuana, Chef Miguel Angel Guerrero Yagües shows off his terrific wood-fired grill to Rick before he cooks lamb three ways. Chef Jair Tellez makes a geoduck ceviche at his dreamy Laja restaurant in the Valle de Guadalupe. At home, Rick grills lamb with fennel and a red chile salsa. Astonishing Baja, indeed.

In RICHARD BANGS' ADVENTURES WITH PURPOSE Switzerland: Quest for the Sublime, he explores the origins of adventure travel and searches for what philosophers and poets of the past called "the sublime."
