Episode 49: A Trip to Oaxaca

December 26, 1998

If you've had enough already of winter, start thinking south of the border and tune in as Rick Bayless, award-winning author of Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen, gives us an insider's view of places to go, things to see and, best of all, places to eat in Oaxaca! Jane and Michael Stern report in from just north of the border in Arizona with advice on where to find superb Indian Tacos. Our fruit expert, David Karp, recently visited California's Coachella Valley during the date harvest and shares what he learned about dates, including mail-order sources for superb rare varieties. Anne from Minneapolis tries to Stump the Cook, and Lynne takes your calls and makes one herself—to Spago in Las Vegas!
