Escamoles are the caviar of the Mexican desert. Unlike traditional caviar, which come from fish eggs, escamoles are ant eggs. Farmer Jos Islas Barrera invites us along as he digs up escamoles in Tlaxcala, Mexico. Its tough work. Ants build their nests underground, and theyre not always easy to find. Next, we head to Mexico City where executive chef Josefina Lpez Mndez shows us how she incorporates this delicacy into her delicious dishes.
