Lamb Roast
For truly traditional Texcoco barbecue, the lamb should be cooked in a big outdoor pit. But since it’s against the law to serve it in a restaurant, Paco Perez invites Andrew and Bill to his home where he has his own (in the ground) pit.

San Diego Zoo
The San Diego Zoo's kitchen handles more than 6,000 pounds of food a day. But this food isn't for people; it's for the zoo's 4,000 wild inhabitants who can be some of the pickiest customers of all! Andrew finds out how the food is prepped for them.
