Vanilla only comes in a bottle, right? Oh, it's a bean!? Where on earth do I find vanilla beans and then how do I cook with them? Do I crack them open or something?

This show looks at how cinnamon traveled from Asia to Mexico and how you use it in delicious foods today, like: Agua de Horchata, Amarillito Mole, Cinnamon Chochoyotes or Corn Masa Dumplings, Piggy Cinnamon and Piloncillo Cookies.
