You can catch Don Guerra of Barrio Bread on the PBS television series “Pati’s Mexican Table” at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 3.
The three-time James Beard Award-winning and Emmy nominated show is hosted by Pati Jinich, who’s busy being a chef and cookbook author when not behind the camera.
In the premiere episode of the new season, Jinich’s first stop is a visit to Guerra’s bakery here in Tucson before traveling to Sonora, Mexico. Featured in the episode is also the trail that Guerra uses when visiting the wheat fields near Ciudad Obregón.
“The Sonoran people are blunt and transparent – yes is yes and no is no, which is so refreshing,” said “Pati’s Mexican Table” host, Jinich. “They also share the values of all Mexicans, very family-oriented, hospitable, warm, generous, and hard-working. Once you become a friend, you become part of their family.”
The news of the television appearance comes right on the heels of another big announcement from Guerra — a joint venture into a new restaurant with chef Carlotta Flores of the Si Charro restaurants. The new concept, Barrio Charro, is in the works near the Safeway on Campbell and Prince Road.
If you’re unable to catch the episode on PBS, it’ll eventually be available on Amazon Prime.
