Pati's Mexican Table

Pati travels into the mountains of Sinaloa to the tiny village of Jinetes - a place that appears to be stuck in time. The small population of barely 100 people live on whatever the land gives them. Miles and miles removed from civilization, they've managed to preserve their customs and recipes for generations. Pati is the first visitor to come learn from their culinary traditions and they've prepared a feast fit for the occasion.
