“El Arte de la Cocina” is a short documentary by Alberto Roblest, creator of Hola Cultura, based on conversations with Washington, D.C.’s, top Latin chefs about the many ways culinary traditions connect Latinos with themselves, their families, their communities, and their past, present and future. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of this project along with Chef Nelson Larios of Lauriol Plaza, Chef Javier Romero of Taberna del Alabardero, Chef Ramon Martinez of Jaleo, Chef Ismar Reyes-Cruz of El Nopalito, Chef Beatriz Zuluaga of CentroNí­a, and Chef Tito Vargas of Oyamel. I talk about how the kitchen brings us Latinos together with our culture, heritage and traditions.

I appear on a special live broadcast of David and Nycci Nellis’ Federal News Radio show “Foodie and the Beast” from Poste Modern Brasserie in Washington, D.C., with other guests Chef Dennis Marron and Lead Bartender Jason Wiles, both from Poste, Craig Rogers from Border Springs Farm in Virginia, Tom Hunter from Flying Dog Brewery, and Holly Harter from Subarashii Kudamono Asian Pear Wines.  I am talking about the differences between homestyle Mexican food and the food we associate with many Mexican restaurants in America.

“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.”

“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…”
