I’ve teamed up with my good friend Sally Swift, co-creator of The Splendid Table, on a podcast series we call “Big Appetites” because, let’s be honest, we both love to eat! It’s part of American Public Media’s Infinite Guest podcast network where you can listen to experts and enthusiasts chat about comedy, food, culture, sports, music, and so on. I am thrilled and honored to have been invited to join them.

In “Big Appetites,” Sally and I are talking about our favorite topic, food (of course!), and whatever else comes to mind.

“U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will visit the Library of Congress for the final of four 2014 Let’s Read! Let’s Move! field trips in his neighborhood, which is part of a broader initiative to engage youth in summer learning and physical activity. Deputy Librarian of Congress Robert Dizard, Jr. will give welcoming remarks, and then Duncan will join Acting Surgeon General Boris D. Lushniak, NFL Hall of Famer Quarterback Warren Moon and Chef Pati Jinich of PBS’s ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ in reading to the students and encouraging them to stay active and healthy.

Before the reading, students will go to the Great Hall Mezzanine Level to learn more about the Library of Congress through interactive kiosks and a special presentation. At noon, Secretary Duncan and guests will read Thomas Jefferson Builds a Library by Barb Rosenstock and John O’Brien and answer students’ questions in the Thomas Jefferson Library. Following the reading, Acting Surgeon General Boris D. Lushniak will encourage children to eat healthy and be active and kick off the Let’s Move! activity with an interactive game. Let’s Move activities will continue as Chef Pati Jinich, staff from the Library of Congress Young Readers Center, the USDA Power Panther and the YMCA join in to lead the children in more games and fun. These Let’s Move! activities are inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to combat childhood obesity by emphasizing healthy eating and an active lifestyle…”

I’m beyond honored and delighted to have been able to cook for the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House with Chef José Andrés and his incredible team from Oyamel. I had the opportunity to meet President Barack Obama, take an official photo, and chat with him. I was almost speechless! (You know that’s very uncommon for me.)

Watch the President’s remarks right here…

“A few months ago, I was channel surfing on TV, and landed on an intriguing show on PBS called Pati’s Mexican Table. Not a lover of food shows by any stretch of the imagination, I found myself somehow riveted to the screen. Pati Jinich was the chef, preparing in an effortless and jubilant way what looked to be a sumptuous authentic Mexican dish for her young son. I remember there were prawns in the dish, and the food looked so inviting. Her small boy was enraptured, gobbling it down for dinner. While I certainly know TV is not real life, I was struck by Pati – by the sheer joy and love she shared about Mexican food, culture and tradition. It was palpable and jumped off the screen, and made me want to record every show, to learn how to cook authentic Mexican dishes and adore the process, just as she did.

To my surprise, shortly after, I was able to connect with Pati about her new book by the same title, Pati’s Mexican Table, and I had the opportunity to speak at length with her about her fascinating journey from Mexico, to Washington as a political analyst, to serving as a top Mexican chef with her own popular PBS show focused on Mexican food and heritage…”

“Mexican food has suffered an image problem. When people say they want Mexican food they think fajitas, or hard shell tacos, or chile con queso. These ‘Tex Mex’ fast food interpretations discredit a cuisine that has arose from ancient civilizations that pre-date the arrival of the Spaniards.

And that is precisely why we need someone like Pati Jinich, the Latin American policy-researcher-turned-chef who is transforming our view of Mexican cuisine.

Her exploration of her own culinary heritage in Mexico is part of a growing field of public diplomacy – gastrodiplomacy…”
