Renowned chef Peter Kuruvita embarks on a breathtaking journey of culinary discovery through the vibrant, mouth-watering world of Mexican cuisine. His mission is to uncover the heart of Mexico’s food culture and let the passion of its people inspire his own take on some of their most prized dishes. If it weren’t for Mexico, we wouldn’t have tomatoes, chilli, avocado, squash, vanilla, chocolate and that most staple of ingredients – corn. What other country can claim such versatile favourites?

 

Peter proves there's more to Mexican food than the Westernised takeaway basics. His beef tacos are filled with freshness and flavour, while chicken tamales are a perfect party hit. Charting off into less-traversed culinary territory, Peter makes seared red snapper with salsa verde, vanilla poached prawns and coconut ice-cream with chilli and caramel pineapple.
