The Latin Kitchen is an upbeat half-hour of culinary favourites from Mexico, Spain, and Venezuela. In their very own rustic Latin Kitchen, Juan Pablo (Venezuela), Luis (Mexico) and Tigretón (Spain) give us fresh takes on traditional Latin meals. Our hosts introduce us to simple techniques and new ingredients sure to spice up any dinner party or weeknight meal.
