Pati's Mexican Table

Originally conceived as a trade route linking cattle markets in Kansas City to the nearest Pacific Ocean port in Mexico, which is Topolobampo. Today the El Chepe railway is a historic passenger train that connects the city of Los Mochis to Chihuahua with stunning views of the Sinaloa countryside and the Copper Canyon. In this episode, Pati will ride the first section of the train's journey - from Los Mochis to El Fuerte. She will tour the train's kitchen and sit down with chef Daniel De Los Santos to taste the gourmet offerings from the train's restaurant, Urike. Later, Pati will have a drink with her friend Rosalva Analy in the train's stunning terrace. Back home, inspired by the early morning train ride through countryside of Sinaloa, Pati cooks up a delicious breakfast based on Sinaloan classics.
