The family-owned Gaytan Foods has been making chicharrones since the early 1900s. Their modern facility was opened in 1935 and still exists in its original location.

Saturday @ 5:30PM -- "Pig Ears"

Huell's bartender at Musso & Frank told Huell how much he liked to eat pig ears as a child. Well, Huell dove right in and learned a lot more than he expected about different cultures and this culinary treat. To see a Latin spin on how pig ears are prepared, Huell stops by Gaytan Foods and sees the pickled pig ears. Then he meets up with Ruben (from Musso & Frank) at Durango Restaurant where they cook them just like his mom used to. Finally, he samples a gelatinous Asian delicacy at the Chung King Restaurant.

Sunday @ 7:00PM -- "Hidden Gems"
Tustin is famous for its WWII blimp hangers, but this vibrant community has lots of history and some real hidden gems. Huell spends the day exploring Tustin and starts off at the Tustin Museum for a little history lesson. He visits an honest to goodness blacksmith and stops into the Wooden Indian for a haircut. We'll see some wonderful old architecture and even grab some lunch at wonderful BBQ joint.
