    The production and content of this series is really great, BUT I must object to the constant use of flamenco/Spanish guitar music throughout the shots. This is not Mexican music. They are not the same and using another culture’s soundtrack gives an inaccurate narrative of the soundtrack to these people’s lives that are being featured here. Please ditch the generic flamenco and find some authentic sources of music relevant to the subject matter.

    I rarely comment on videos, but I'm left wondering how anyone voted this down. This was great. The humility with which Rick approached the task at hand, the skill with which he recreated the dish, and the overall production of the video were all a joy to watch. Loved it.

  • MrDarillion

    I'd love to see Rick head south of Mexico! I've always been massively interested in the food of central America, and he seems like the perfect person to show it to us.

    When I first started watching this I thought who wants a sandwich with soggy bread that you cannot hold. I was happy to see they answered those concerns. I do think I would put the salsa inside the sandwich if I made it though. Yeah, so that is not traditional. ::shrug:: Great episode!

      Well you’re on the internet… you’re bound to find something akin to the recipe in this video.


    As someone who was born in Guadalajara. This is the best dish the city has to offer. There isn't a boring day of eating in Guadalajara. Got excited when I was the market.

    There has been always this big debate about putting frijoles in the tortas ahogadas, most people say that adding frijolitos to the torta transform them automatically into a simple "lonche" which is just a simple torta, the true essence of the torta ahogada is without the frijoles, you can ask 10 people and half is gonna say adding frijoles is just fine and the other half is gonna get real mad about it lol

    I love this series. I loved Rick on the channel that shall remain nameless. I loooooove the passion he has for the food and the methods of making it and he himself going to the local craftsfolk. The cinematography is gorgeous.

    Great video and loved everything in it. Please make more content like this! Complete side note, but does the left and right audio sound flipped or is it just me?

  • inquisitorialsquad

    This is amazing! The whole breadmaking sequence was fantastic wow it was so nice to see generations of breadmakers and panaderias still keeping tradition alive

  • American5585

    jesus, what a skill this guy has making those sandwich rolls. And I thought he is only food/tasting traveler. I would like to see him make these rolls in basics to see some more of that technique

  • bombshellblonde544

    WOW this was so cool to watch! This production value is unbelievable. As soon as I hit fullscreen, I didn't feel like I was watching FIbill. I watched a bunch of Taco Chronicles on Netflix, and I could have sworn that first place Gerry and Rick went to was in an episode! Phenomenal stuff

    I cannot praise this format enough. Way to go Rick and BCU. This is a hit.

  • Alex

    read: “Como Ague Para Chocolate”- by Laura Esquivel! It has a bunch of prehispánic recipes and it’s a great book in general that I think you would like and help understand some of the history of Mexican gastronomy (but mostly it’s just a great novel)

  • James Myers

    Food looks delicious. If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, I would choose Mexican food. One request, make the font of the captions bigger. I need my reading glasses.

    Been a fan of this channel for a long time! Although the short form content focused on food from media will always be my fave, I absolutely LOVE this series.
