PBS No Passport Required: Chicago

Tuesday, July 24 at 9-10:00 p.m. ET – “Chicago”

Marcus visits the longstanding Mexican community in Chicago — the second largest in the U.S. — to learn about its heritage and traditions. With muralist Juan Angel Chavez, Marcus eats tacos de cecina and grilled nopales, and discusses the important role meat plays in Mexican cooking. Later, Marcus discovers the secrets of making mole sauce with master chef Diana Davila, who combines Chicago’s local ingredients with the techniques of pre-Hispanic Mexican cuisine at her restaurant Mi Tocaya.
