Mexico - One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless

Oaxaca's Most Magical Holiday

Rick takes us on a remarkable journey through Oaxaca City during the revered Dيa de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday. We discover that in Mexico, death is embraced as part of the circle of life. During the holiday, people welcome home the spirits of their ancestors who come to commune with their families and friends. Like all visitors, the ancestors are welcomed with food, drink, music and memories. The spirit's presence is a blessing and brings joy to loved ones.
