RICK Stein’s Road to Mexico sees the celebrity chef travel across Northern America, picking up cooking inspiration from traditional recipes.
But where are the stunning filming locations for his latest cooking show? Here’s what you need to know…
When is Rick Stein’s Road To Mexico on TV?
Rick Stein‘s new show airs on BBC2 on Tuesdays at 9pm.
The seven-part series kicked off on November 7.
Where is Rick Stein’s Road To Mexico filmed?
In Rick Stein’s Road to Mexico, the celebrity chef travels from Northern California to (you guessed it!) Mexico.
The 70-year-old is retracing his steps from a road trip he embarked on nearly 50 years ago, in 1958.
Rick will drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to the Mexican border, and beyond.
San Francisco bay
The first show starts in the bay of San Francisco, California. Here, the chef samples oyster pancakes and sourdough bread.
It’s also the place where a young Rick got his first taste of Mexican food. Enchiladas, guacamole and burritos became real to the chef in this town.
Rick will then travel down the Californian coastline, past citrus groves and vineyards.
This route will take him to Los Angeles – and an iconic area of Downtown LA called Olvera Street.
Here, there’s a famous Mexican marketplace with street vendors, cafes, restaurants and painted market stalls.
This market is at the heart of LA’s Hispanic roots, and many of market traders are descended from those who originally sold there.
Rick then journeys further south to San Diego, where he meets the oldest sea urchin diver in town.
Rick finishes his trip in Oaxaca, one of Mexico’s most captivating cities.
The area is known for its indigenous traditions, top-class museums, charming inns and fascinating markets.
While the city has its very own version of Mexican cuisine.

She was born in Kent as the middle child of Michael and Gloria Moores.

Are Alexandra and husband Paul separating?
Paul Hollywood and his wife Alexandra announced news of their split on November 20, 2017: “It is with sadness that we have decided to separate.
“Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son, and we would ask the press and public to allow us privacy as a family during this very difficult time.”
Paul met his wife Alexandra in Cyprus in 1996 while she was working as a diving instructor at the five-star hotel where he was head baker.
They married in that country in 1998 and had a son in October 2001, called Josh.
Paul and Alexandra came close to divorcing in 2015 after reports spread that he’d been enjoying a romance with his American Baking Competition co-host Marcela Valladolid.
At the Pride of Britain Awards in London at the beginning of November 2017, Paul was pictured sharing an intimate kiss with ex-Bake Off winner Candice Brown.
Candice, 32, was also seen appearing to toy with his ear.
The pair sipped champagne and Paul — who cheated on his wife in 2013 — draped a blanket over Candice’s shoulders.
Candice — known during the show for her lipstick choices — also posed for a selfie with the laughing judge.
