Eva Longoria: Searching for Mexico [2023] on Paramount Plus

Eva Longoria is the ideal host for this series. And thanks to Searching for Mexico, I am already planning a trip to new parts of Mexico. 


In this CNN spinoff, it’s time for Mexico to shine. After watching the amazing Stanley Tucci doing his thing in Italy, I had high expectations for this one. And I have to admit that, even though Longoria delivered on many things, she appeared a bit out of touch with her heritage and in the kitchen. Stanley was a natural.

All of that aside, the show really captures the beauty of people, food and culture of Mexico. And yes, I’m not Mexican and I barely visited Mexico. However, this show made me want to explore even more parts of this multi-cultural and layered country.

From the exposures to the various cities and states in Mexico to unique cultural stories and native/geographic specific ingredients and cooking methods, this series delivers! Don’t compare it to Italy, and you’ll be happily statisfied.

Should You Watch It?

In many ways it’s as good and satisfying a series as Searching for Italy, which I love and have watched twice in its entirety. I am definitely hoping for another spin-off. Maybe Spain or Greece?
