Mexico City got yet another moment to shine in the spotlight thanks to a visit from Martha Stewart and her show’s crew. Their culinary, architectural and artisanal adventures were captured into a one-hour “The Martha Stewart Show” which aired yesterday, Wed. Nov. 2 on the Hallmark Channel. No worries if you missed it like I did, we can catch a repeat today at 1pm Eastern time on Hallmark.
From the press release:
Mexico City shines in the spotlight of Hallmark Channel’s Emmy- winning program, “The Martha Stewart Show,” when the domestic diva takes her prowess on the road to experience the food and design of North America’s largest city. The one hour special episode, premiering Wed., Nov. 2, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. ET/9:00 a.m. CT, showcases the contemporary culture of the ancient capital by going behind the curtain to unveil the traditions that inspire the city’s A-list chefs, architect and artisanal artists. From indulging in street food and visiting artist homes, to bike riding through one of the world’s most expansive urban parks with Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, Martha Stewart enjoys the hospitality of Mexico City and explores like a local.
Just from reading her blog post and scouring through the tons of candid pictures they uploaded from their July 2011 trip, I know they got to experience the heart of this ancient capital, the oldest city in the Americas. The heart that beats with an ancestral rhythm that still feels so alive and moves you to new levels of appreciation as we realize the sacredness of our being. It feels like everything in Mexico City has a history and is infused with cultural past.
