A Commitment to "Mi Tierra"

  • Aired: 04/21/2011
  • 26:46
  • Rating: NR
The Cortez family and their Mi Tierra restaurant is not just a story about Tex- Mex cuisine. It is a story about how the Mexican revolution provided the ingredients that created the taste and style of the Mexican-American cultural movement. We'll explore similarities between Emiliano Zapata and Mi Tierra and how the revolutionary spirit would become the mantra for the Cortez' and their restaurant.
