We had a blast filming this dating/ cooking segment for the Hispanic Food Network. Good energy flowed; we laughed, cooked, and made new friends. The concept ala Nancy Bates from “Single Mingles” is simple, “If you can happily cook a meal with someone you just might be able to find love with that someone too.” My trusty “love-o- meter,” my internal compatibility needle…pointed straight up at a couple of bachelors and bachelorettes who will be hooking up for sure!
Four couples; Four Mexican dishes.
Each couple worked diligently on their Cook with US recipe; gathering ingredients, prepping and cooking the food and finally plating the delicious creations. We feasted on authentic Chicken Mole cooked in a traditional cazuela or clay casserole. The Mexican rice with chiles, carrots, and peas was perfectly executed by our young chefs as an accompaniment. A fresh salad composed of escarole, oranges, jicama, and mango presented a colorful refreshing platter. Individual dessert dishes of pears in tequila and chocolate with crema and fresh mint left us sweetly content.
We are happy to share our recipes, invite your friends over for a scrumptious Mexican feast and watch the show while you are at it. Channel 4 KXLY in the greater Spokane area. It airs Sunday May 30, 2010, In the Kitchen with Mike Gonzalez.
