Cooking Channel Visits Barrio Cafe for Food(ography) Shoot

Last night the crew from Mo Rocca's Cooking Channel show, Food(ography), visited chef Silvana Salcido Esparza for a four-hour shoot at Barrio CafeHere's a behind-the-scenes snapshot of the episode. 


Word is, Mo was a no go, but who needs a host, anyway? Esparza could carry her own show. She did a demo of making chiles en nogada, a roasted poblano pepper stuffed with chicken, dried fruits, onions, garlic, and pecans. It's topped with almond sauce and pomegranates.

There's no word on when the episode, but considering that chiles en nogada is a classic fall dish in Southern Mexico, it's a good bet that it'll be another six months. Stay tuned.
