“‘Mexican home cooking is beautiful in its simplicity, tremendously convenient, and wholesome,’ [Pati Jinich] says. Jinich accomplishes her goal and does an excellent job of inspiring home cooks to make dishes from her native country in her first cookbook. Alongside her recipes, which she says ‘have come to my table from many paths,’ she shares Mexican cook’s tricks–lessons passed down from generation to generation in her family: for example, how to control chile heat. The book is filled with bright, fresh flavors and dishes that are wonderful in their simplicity…”

“‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ hit the air in April 2011. Its host was born and raised in Mexico City and has a master’s degree in Latin American studies from Georgetown University. She switched gears to focus on research and share her knowledge about Mexican cuisine.

On the program, she introduces viewers to Mexican ingredients and cooking techniques. She also mixes in information about regional cultures and Mexican history and traditions.

The first episode I watched showed Jinich making Mexican wedding cookies, which is what we gringos call them, but they are known as polvorones in Mexico.”

“‘Mi papá me decí­a que después de haber sido una rata de biblioteca acabé en la cocina. Originalmente querí­a ser flautista; estudiaba en el conservatorio, pero sentí­a que no tení­a talento pleno: podí­a tocar partituras, pero no improvisar.

Querí­a una carrera relacionada a las ciencias sociales. No podí­a entrar a la de Filosofí­a y Letras de la UNAM por la huelga y me decidí­ por la universidad más difí­cil: el ITAM, con la carrera de Ciencias Sociales que al año cambió de nombre por Ciencia Polí­tica’, cuenta risueña Patricia Jinich.

Y finalmente se tituló con un proyecto de tesis dirigido por el finado Alonso Lujambio. Pero la vida y el amor le tení­an planes fuera de la Ciudad…”

Do we celebrate Halloween in Mexico? Yes, more so in the big cities, but Halloween is a growing holiday throughout Mexico. However, what is predominately celebrated around this time of year is Day of the Dead. I had a wonderful time speaking with Lynne Rossetto Kasper about the iconic festivities of Day of the Dead, including the many things we do with pumpkins.

“El Arte de la Cocina” is a short documentary by Alberto Roblest, creator of Hola Cultura, based on conversations with Washington, D.C.’s, top Latin chefs about the many ways culinary traditions connect Latinos with themselves, their families, their communities, and their past, present and future. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of this project along with Chef Nelson Larios of Lauriol Plaza, Chef Javier Romero of Taberna del Alabardero, Chef Ramon Martinez of Jaleo, Chef Ismar Reyes-Cruz of El Nopalito, Chef Beatriz Zuluaga of CentroNí­a, and Chef Tito Vargas of Oyamel. I talk about how the kitchen brings us Latinos together with our culture, heritage and traditions.

I appear on a special live broadcast of David and Nycci Nellis’ Federal News Radio show “Foodie and the Beast” from Poste Modern Brasserie in Washington, D.C., with other guests Chef Dennis Marron and Lead Bartender Jason Wiles, both from Poste, Craig Rogers from Border Springs Farm in Virginia, Tom Hunter from Flying Dog Brewery, and Holly Harter from Subarashii Kudamono Asian Pear Wines.  I am talking about the differences between homestyle Mexican food and the food we associate with many Mexican restaurants in America.
