“The popularity of Mexican food is an all-time high and there’s a book (or two) for nearly every type of variation on the cuisine imaginable, whether it’s regional fare, haute cuisine or chef-driven interpretations of classic meals. But more often than not, home cooks want a volume that will help them make everyday meals taste a little better – or in the case of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table,’ a lot like the Mexican meals that immediately remind one of home and family.

‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ – the newest release by noted PBS television show host Pati Jinich – is a compilation of simple, home-style Mexican recipes. You won’t find greasy nachos or overstuffed quesadillas here; instead, Jinich focuses on the use of simple staples like soft corn tortillas, eggs, basic cuts of meat and lush produce, transforming them with fragrant spices, magical salsas and traditional Mexican cooking techniques to yield deeply flavorful, south-of-the-border-inspired meals that are right at home in any American kitchen. In short, this is home cooking for the people who really do cook 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…”

“Popular PBS cooking host Pati Jinich has just released a book to help Mexican food lovers do just that. Pati’s Mexican Table is a thoughtful book detailing fairly simple Mexican dishes that are easy to incorporate into everyday American cooking. Some of the dishes, like huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and chicken enchiladas, will be instantly recognizable and familiar. Others, like the yellow mole with masa dumplings we will make this week, will offer new tastes and textures for those who don’t regularly step outside of the taco zone…”

“Pati’s Mexican Table, the cookbook, has managed to capture the spirit and delightful storytelling that Pati exhibits when she teaches her classes. The book is full of authentic Mexican recipes that are simple to prepare and are a hit with the family. We loved the red leaf, avocado, and grapefruit salad with olive-mint vinaigrette… this despite the fact that I dont usually like grapefruit! We are looking forward to trying some of the other delightful dishes in the book…”

I got such a kick out of being included in this video recap of the week’s events at the National Press Club. It highlights the Republican National Committee, the United Nations, Syria, the French military, the US Senate — and Mexican cooking! It completely represents what an honor it was for me to be invited to host a dinner and talk about Mexican food at the Press Club. Watch the whole thing here…

“Passover celebrates the Hebrews’ flight from Egypt to freedom more than 3,000 years ago. Jews around the world will remember that exodus at sundown March 25 with a ritual dinner, or Seder. And what’s on the table will tell a story of its own, one based on faith, tradition and family.

Pati Jinich will gather her husband and three sons at their home in Drummond, Md., for a meal that reflects their story as Mexican Jews, a tiny religious minority, an estimated 40,000 people, in a country that is overwhelmingly Christian.

‘I was one of three Jews in a class of 120 kids,’ Jinich recalls in an email. But since her family was not very involved in Mexico City’s Jewish community, she felt ‘sort of not from here and not from there’…”

I love doing stuff in Spanish! I had a lively conversation about Mexican cooking and writing a cookbook with Gabriela Zabalúa-Goddard and José López Zamorano, the fabulous hosts of AARP‘s “Viva su Segunda Juventud” show on SiriusXM’s ¡Inspí­rate! channel 145.
