“When a woman describes herself as an authentic, salt-of-the-earth person, she’s usually lying. Take any celebrity who’s ever claimed that they’re ‘just like us’—’us’ being the folks who pour our own cereal and style our own hair or, more often, forgo breakfast and hairstyling because there’s a dog that needs walking, a husband who needs our internal GPS to find something, and a child who needs some sort of small vegetable extracted from his or her ear/nose/bellybutton.

However, this doesn’t apply to Pati Jinich (pronounced HEE-nich). The 41-year-old Mexican-born chef is just like us—or at least more like us than most folks who have a successful cooking show, a wildly popular culinary blog and recently released cookbook. I know this because the first time I call her, she’s in a panic. She sings songs in a heavy Mexican accent something about burning nuts, offers a hasty apology and asks that I please call her in ‘one minute—no!—30 seconds!’…”

“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…”

On my recent trip to Mexico, I visited the carnitas capital of the world – Quiroga, Michoacán! So, of course, this time on ABC‘s The Chew, I had to share my perfected recipe for carnitas. I made Carnitas Tacos with Daphne Oz, and we mixed up some Salsa Verde Cruda to top them.

“What Dunlop does for China, Pati Jinich does for Mexico in Pati’s Mexican Table: The Secrets of Real Mexican Home Cooking…She puts extra zing into the chicken and potato salad her mother used to make in Mexico City by adding vinegar and chipotle chilies in adobo sauce. Two small moves make a huge difference. It’s an instant classic…”

“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…”
