“Pati Jinich grew up in Mexico City. She’s acquired an impressive résumé since she decided to give up her career at a D.C. think tank. She’s hosted her own PBS series and has appeared on The Today Show, The Chew, NPR and The Splendid Table. As you try the recipes in her new cookbook, Pati’s Mexican Table: The Secrets of Real Mexican Home Cooking…which contains things like watermelon and tomatillo salad with feta; sweet and salty salmon; and my favorite, chicken tinga (made with rotisserie chicken you can pick up on the way home), you’ll be impressed by the simplicity and vibrant flavors of Jinich’s accessible Mexican fare…”

As she writes in the introduction to her passionate new cookbook: ‘Show up in my kitchen any day of the year, and you’ll find soft corn tortillas, refried beans, at least two different salsas, the fresh Mexican cheese called queso fresco, ripe avocados and fresh fruit.’

Free Press reporter Bartley Kives recently wrote about new local restaurants that have allowed Winnipeggers to buy authentic Mexican tacos — the kind made without ‘orange ground beef,’ as he says. Jinich’s cookbook allows you to make authentic tacos at home, along with dishes like enchiladas verdes, pozole rojo, and Oaxaca-style mushroom and cheese quesadillas…”
