On my recent trip to Mexico, I visited the carnitas capital of the world – Quiroga, Michoacán! So, of course, this time on ABC‘s The Chew, I had to share my perfected recipe for carnitas. I made Carnitas Tacos with Daphne Oz, and we mixed up some Salsa Verde Cruda to top them.

Heirlooms: Old, New, Local, Global
Heirloom foods let us taste history while preserving it, but what do “heirlooms” really mean and where do they come from? Join the conversation about native plants, new varieties, and the global influence of diverse communities on foods right here in the DC region. We’ll be talking with: Pati Jinich, host of “Pati’s Mexican Table” and cookbook author, Rayna Green, National Museum of American History curator and Native American food and plant specialist, Hiu Newcomb of Potomac Vegetable Farm, and Ira Wallace of the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

I’m participating in a field-to-plate dinner at East Lynn Farm in Round Hill, Va., to benefit the Piedmont Environmental Council. There will be a tour of the historic farm, cocktails, live music, and a dinner featuring dishes from my cookbook. It will be a perfect summer fiesta in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains for a good cause — I hope you will join me!

I got such a kick out of being included in this video recap of the week’s events at the National Press Club. It highlights the Republican National Committee, the United Nations, Syria, the French military, the US Senate — and Mexican cooking! It completely represents what an honor it was for me to be invited to host a dinner and talk about Mexican food at the Press Club. Watch the whole thing here…
I love doing stuff in Spanish! I had a lively conversation about Mexican cooking and writing a cookbook with Gabriela Zabalúa-Goddard and José López Zamorano, the fabulous hosts of AARP‘s “Viva su Segunda Juventud” show on SiriusXM’s ¡Inspírate! channel 145.
