“Pati Jinich loves Mexican cooking (and food, and culture) so much that it sort of explodes out of her, and your only option is to absorb what she has to teach you and share in the joy. As this week’s guest editor, Pati has been sharing recipes from her new book that translate authentic Mexican flavors into dishes that are accessible — and useful — to any home cook. And she delivers everything with zeal and humor — just look at the way she avoids choosing between salsa and guacamole…”

“Ever since she was a child, Pati Jinich has been passionate about food and sharing her love for all things culinary – what I didn’t expect was to have her literally share her love of food with me. When we met at The Senator restaurant in Toronto on a Monday morning, Jinich enjoyed a traditional diner breakfast while we chatted, and generously insisted that I try some of her meal, as well. ‘Can I give you a little?’ she asked. ‘Please, it’s so much food! Ask for a plate. Eat with me!’

American public television viewers have witnessed Jinich’s fun and welcoming nature through her popular television show, Pati’s Mexican Table, since 2007, and now with the launch of her debut cookbook of the same name, Jinich’s home-style Mexican cooking is making waves across the continent. Jinich is quick to emphasize, however, that what she cooks isn’t the fast-food, Tex-Mex food that many Canadians might usually eat. ‘Real Mexican food is healthy and wholesome,’ Jinich explains…”

“Well, it’s probably a little uncharitable to call it a fake holiday, because Cinco de Mayo does celebrate something very real — namely liberation from the French (haw haw) during the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Although it’s not celebrated in any big way in Mexico, it’s a huge part of Mexican-American culture. And what better way to flip a bird at the French than to make some really good Mexican food?

So we teamed up with Pati Jinich, the official chef of the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, D.C. and author of Pati’s Mexican Table, to get some invaluable advice on how to cook authentic Mexican food at home…”

“Pati Jinich nunca pensó que su carrera de analista política le iba a servir para el oficio que desempeña en la actualidad: ser la chef instructora del programa Pati’s Mexican Table del Instituto Cultural de México en Washington, D.C.

‘Era muy romántica, idealista, quería ayudar a México y a sus inmigrantes con ideas, artículos, ensayos’, dice Jinich, hija de padre arquitecto y joyero —que ahora es ‘restauranteur’— y de madre corredora de arte y dueña de su propia galleria…”
