“‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ hit the air in April 2011. Its host was born and raised in Mexico City and has a master’s degree in Latin American studies from Georgetown University. She switched gears to focus on research and share her knowledge about Mexican cuisine.

On the program, she introduces viewers to Mexican ingredients and cooking techniques. She also mixes in information about regional cultures and Mexican history and traditions.

The first episode I watched showed Jinich making Mexican wedding cookies, which is what we gringos call them, but they are known as polvorones in Mexico.”

“Food is a great ‘teacher’ when it comes to learning about culture. Is that how you get people excited about all-things-Mexico?

Indeed! It seems to me that there is no better place to share differences, no more joyous and peaceful way to experience other’s ‘culture’ than at the table. The dish, a recipe, is just the start. It is a delicious and edible lid that opens a world of how a people, a country, a community live: how they grow, buy and sell ingredients, how they cook, serve, interact, share, celebrate; ultimately, how their lives are built and experienced.”

“The crew had repeatedly approached the stern-faced owner of La Pasita to try to secure permission to film an episode for season two of Pati’s Mexican Table. But Emilio Contreras Ovando was standing his ground: No way. No one takes photos or films inside’s Puebla’s oldest cantina, named after its housemade, high alcohol, raisin liquor served with a cube of aged cheese.

But Pati Jinich wouldn’t let it go. She and her crew, after all, had invested time and money in …”

I was so excited to be back on The Chew with the amazing Chew family! I had a lovely time making my Chocoflan alongside Mario Batali and Daphne Oz.

“Tossing a healthy dose of bright, sliced radishes atop a pair of fiery red enchiladas, the crispy jacketed Pati Jinich sounds genuinely baffled when she throws her hands in the air after observing her handiwork.

‘How can anyone say Mexican food isn’t healthy?’ she asks.

Jinich, who has tasked herself with spreading the gospel of her homeland’s soulful and nutritious cuisine, has found an open pulpit at Washington, D.C.’s Mexican Cultural Institute, an educational outreach arm of the Mexican Embassy. She launched a series of classes there five years ago that have since evolved into the PBS show ‘Pati’s Mexican Table.’”

I had such a nice time personalizing the Scribble cookies for the Today Show crew, rolling out the Anise Seed Ropes, and making the gooey dough for the Piggies with Al Roker on the Today Show. 

Here is a clip of the cooking segment, where we made the three different cookie recipes: the playful Piloncillo Piggies, the elegant Anise Seed Ropes and the fun chocolaty Scribbles.

I had such a lovely tome visiting the Today Show, their food prep team is beyond amazing and the cast is so friendly and oh so much fun.

Here is a clip of the cooking segment, where we made three totally different recipes with corn: the wild and fun Crazy Corn, a chunky, hearty and fresh Chop Chop Salad, and a comforting Corn Torte that you can top with Poblano Rajas.

“When chef and writer Pati Jinich warms up to a subject on Mexican cooking, any subject on Mexican cooking, she’ll start talking fast, her musical words barely keeping up with the thoughts racing through her head.  Her hands will become animated, as much to make a connection as to punctuate a point.  She likes to tough people lightly on the arm or, more emphatically, point at them when they say something she likes.  She laughs as if everything you say is comedic gold.

Sometimes it seems as if Pati Jinich — she prefers the informal name — could turn a misanthrope into butter or, perhaps more surprising…”
