pati's mexican table

Retired mechanic Gualberto Elizondo, "Weber," surprised his grown kids when suddenly his grilling hobby turned him into a local celebrity and internet sensation. He drives Pati through the mountains of La Huasteca in his old car, then to his famous back patio where he and his family treat us to Cabrito en salsa and short ribs. But local chef Chuy Villareal of Cara De Vaca wants the world to know that the north of Mexico isn't just carne asada and he's putting a Mediterranean twist on his traditional dishes. In the kitchen recipes: Costillitas con Sal, Chile y Limon; Chile Lime Baby Back Ribs; Salsa Cruda de Chile Piquin Verde con Oregano; Green Piquin Chile and Oregano Salsa; Papitas con Queso Fundido y Tocino; Grilled Queso Fundido Potatoes with Bacon.
