Mexico Food, Globe trekker
Posted: November 30, 2014 by Kenneth Scott
Program: Globe Trekker
We watched the Mexico Food Globe Trekker last night. Great show, but I wanted to listen to it and copy some recipes. Especially the one on the Flan & the one on Chocolate. I would listen to the hour long broadcast if needed, or is there a place to find the recipes? This film was great.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  I tried to go to their website.  I thought maybe they had the recipe or you could watch it again, but I could not find anything.  Maybe if you contacted them with your request it might help.  Just google their website.
 
I apologize of not being of more help.
 
Sincerely,

Hi, we watch globe trekker quite religiously, yet we are wondering if the show is a collection of only old episodes or are there new on going shows currently being produced? Thank you:)
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.
Globe Trekkeris currently feeding 27 episodes of season 11.  The feeds for season 11 started in April 2012 and will stop at the end of March 2013.  The website for Globe Trekker indicates that season 16 and Globe Trekker Around the World are currently in production but there are no dates yet.  I am sure we will keep recording their feeds so stay tuned.
 In case you want to peek for yourself here is the link to their website:

I hope this answers your question.
Thanks for watching.

I watched a travel show on China the other night (the one with the young woman as host), and they showed this guy cutting off the head of a snake and dripping its blood into a drink. I couldn't believe it! That's not what I want to see on PBS (or any place else). I was really freaked out. I know China is horrible to animals. That's why I never would want to go there. But do I have to be forced to see something like this unexpectedly?! I do avoid watching gratuitous violence in movies, on TV, or anywhere. I did NOT appreciate being unwittingly subjected to this.
CPT12 Response:
 Sorry for the late reply.  You were probably watching Globe Trekker?  This show often goes far beyond popular tourist destinations in order to give viewers a more authentic look at local culture. Presenters usually participate in different aspects of regional life, such as attending a traditional wedding, visiting a mining community, and eating and drinking local fare which may include scenes as you describe.
 
I imagine people from India would find leather shoes or eating beef offensive.  While some types of scenes may be disturbing they are key to the depicting the true culture of the area.  Different strokes, as they say.
 
Thanks for your feedback.
