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.

“I was born and raised in Mexico City, in a family where every taco happens to be, as my dad boasts, “the best taco you’ve ever had in your entire life.” That is, until you eat the next one.


Living in the US, I am often dismayed at how my home country is portrayed in the media. For some, it’s easy to just write off the entire country as dangerous and riddled with cartel violence. As a former political analyst, I am not in denial about the hurdles my country faces, but the Mexico illustrated in some news reports is certainly not the Mexico I know and love – nor is it the Mexico experienced by the 22.67 million international tourists that visited last year…”

“Growing up in Mexico City, I didn’t know a single person who celebrated Cinco de Mayo, except for the people who lived in the state of Puebla. We didn’t even get the day off! Sure we studied it in school–the unprecedented victory of a small Mexican militia against the large French army in 1862–but it was a short-lived victory, as the French won right back.

Fast forward 150 years to 2012: the French and Spanish are gone; Mexicans proudly celebrate Independence Day every September 16; yet, for reasons few of us can explain, Cinco de Mayo has become the greatest, most joyous, colorful celebration–for Mexicans living abroad. As strange as the nostalgia is, the longer I live abroad, the stronger the impact Cinco de Mayo has within my soul. These words fluff up like soft conchas right out of the oven, getting fluffier, sweeter and more comforting as the years go by…”

“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.’”

The Chew Family, Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Michael Symon, Daphne OzClinton Kelly, and Evette Rios, could not have been warmer, kinder and more generous when I came to visit! They hosted a most fun Mexican episode. I brought them the Garibaldi’s for a treat, and Mario and Carla made the most scrumptious torta, The Pepito, with me.

Here is a clip from the show when we talked a bit… 



Here is where we made the Pepitos! Did you know Mario Batali speaks perfect Spanish?

“Every few months, my family gets together with a Latin group of friends and their families for a potluck.

This winter it was our turn. As tradition goes, the host brings the main dishes to the table and the others bring the rest. I eagerly announced my plans to share Mexican casseroles, also called cazuelas, budines or pasteles. The Mexicans couldn’t hide their joy — ‘Pati! De veras? Budin Azteca? Cazuela de Tamal?!’ — and quickly thought of other ‘very’ Mexican sides to pair with them. The Argentines and Costa Ricans tried to understand what ‘Mexican casserole’ meant and whether it was supposed to be any good…”

“America is obsessed with television food celebrities. Somewhere along the way, we forgot that, in the kitchen, there just isn’t any substitute for passion and talent. We’ve conveniently chosen to ignore that fact that many of these ‘stars’ are neither food experts nor stars.


However, we have our own right here in DC, and she is always a star, even when there aren’t any TV cameras around.

Her name is Pati Jinich, and she is the chef and host of PBS’s Mexican Table and teaches Mexican cooking classes by the same name at the Mexican Cultural Institute that are a foodie’s dream…”
