Meet the newest chef to helm a show for the Food Network –-Marcela Valladolid with “Mexican Food Made Easy”
Her philosophy isPeople in this country just love Mexican food, but there’s so much more to it than people know. and she bases her kitchen philosophy on her childhood because she actually grew up in Tijuana, Mexico.
People in this country just love Mexican food, but there’s so much more to it than people know. People associate Mexican food with nachos, burritos, margaritas and really deep-fried foods heavy in starches, and those dishes are beloved in the U.S. We have to be grateful because this is the stuff that opened up the doors for people like me. It’s not a coincidence that salsa’s like the best-selling condiment in the country. But these days, the ingredients are just so accessible. It used to be that you only had the Hispanic section at the supermarket – now there’s an entire aisle. I try to make it really fresh, really accessible, and obviously with ingredients you can find at your local supermarket.
Enjoy your Mexican Food with Marcela Valladolid!
