Chef Rick Bayless’s TV show returns to the U.S. airwaves Sept. 16 — in less than a month. Why are we so excited about a show that has already entertained us for 10 seasons?
Because Season 11 is all about Yucatán. The entire 13-episode season of “Mexico, One Plate at a Time” is devoted to the cuisine and culture of the Peninsula.
Filming began in mid-January in Mérida, at the Lucas de Gálvez market, and then headed to the restaurant Manjar Blanco off Parque Santa Ana.
Throughout 13 weeks, Bayless will guide viewers to the fresh fruit of Valladolid, grilling Tikin Xic at the beach, and smoking meat in Temozón.
The shows come first to PBS in the U.S., and are then distributed to Canada and Mexico through various distribution channels.
