“There’s a national shortage of eggs in the country that is the world’s biggest consumer of eggs (350 per person per year). It’s causing prices to rise, and chefs are having to get creative says Patricia Jinich, host of the popular cooking program Pati’s Mexican Table…”

“Es una mujer apasionada de la cocina y la historia, y a quien le gusta difundir lo que sabe. Patricia Jinich empezó hace un año con el programa de televisión Pati’s Mexican Table, que se transmite a nivel nacional en Estados Unidos por la red de televisión píºblica Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), y que incluso llega al sur de Canadá. El éxito en audiencia fue tal –la primera temporada tuvo presencia o cobertura en 94.43% de Estados Unidos y en 6.8 millones de hogares la vieron más de dos veces — que a partir de este mes ha comenzado a transmitirse su segunda temporada.

“Con su programa de TV, Pati’s Mexican Table, Patricia Jinich lleva el sabor de la comida mexicana a los hogares norteamericanos.

Calidez, explicaciones muy sencillas acompañadas de historia, y un acento latino –que porta con orgullo–, son las caracterí­sticas con las que muestra la esencia de la culinaria mexicana. Así­ derriba mitos sobre nuestra cocina: que es compleja y difí­cil de hacer; que es fast food, grasosa, y que es picosa y pesada.”

Holly Morris and the Fox 5 News crew threw a fiesta at my house this morning for Mexican Independence Day, which is this Saturday, September 15. This is Mexico’s Fourth of July! 

We started by gathering a few chiles from my backyard garden. And Kelly, from Capital Decor, made some gorgeous chile arrangements to spice up my kitchen. 

Then, I make Rabo de Mestiza with Holly. Rabo de Mestiza is a dish where eggs are poached in a tomato and poblano sauce. It’s perfect for an Independence Day brunch because the white eggs, green chiles and red tomato sauce represent the colors in Mexico’s flag.

“‘I wanted it to look Mexican, but not in-your-face Mexican,’ Patricia Jinich says of her fabulous Chevy Chase kitchen, with its Jalisco-tile backsplash, hay-colored cabinets, deep-rust walls and judiciously placed pottery.

It’s a fitting backdrop for the Mexican-born Jinich, host of the PBS series Pati’s Mexican Table, which is scheduled to air its second 13-episode season starting Sept. 1…”

Not only did I have a fascinating conversation about Mexican cooking and culture with Gabriela Zabalúa-Goddard and José López Zamorano — hosts of AARP‘s “Viva su Segunda Juventud” radio show for SiriusXM’s ¡Inspí­rate! channel 145 — I also got to try José’s wife’s Mole from Puebla!

“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 …”

What a ride it has been…

From writing the pitch, to finding the extraordinary editor Rux Martin, to recipe re-testing, writing, working with the fabulous team at Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt and having my food photographed by the amazing Penny de los Santos. After what seems to have been an eternity of working so hard and waiting: the book pre-order is up.

I felt goosebumps after I saw it right there, ready to share. Click below: You can see it too!

“It’s back to school time, which of course means back to packing lunch. Here we go again. Every parent is pressed for time. Kids aren’t always open to new foods. No one wants to waste time, or money, on food that won’t get eaten.

Understandably, we fall back on the familiar favorites. Peanut butter and jelly, anyone? Parents know the challenge all to well. Everywhere around the world, kids eat. Why not take a cue from other countries’ cuisines, and fill the lunchbox with new and delicious international flavors?…”
