Pati takes viewers on a deep dive into the history of Oaxaca cuisine from pre-Hispanic origins, to the introduction of Spanish techniques, and finally modern day movements. She starts by tasting ancestral recipes at the local market. Then, she meets up with a friend and historian who takes her to a restaurant, where they eat traditional Oaxaca recipes with a modern twist. Back in her kitchen, inspired by the tastes from that day, she shares new dishes that happen to be vegetarian with her friend and food editor Joe Yonan.
