“With the publication of ‘Pati’s Mexican Table: The Secrets of Real Mexican Home Cooking’…, the circle is complete. Former bookworm policy analyst turned cooking instructor, food blogger, chef and public television culinary host Pati Jinich directs her research, experience, love of country and personal journey onto the printed page.

It’s a tall order, capturing the spirit and energy of this 40-year-old Chevy Chase mother of three, whose career path has been carved step by step with kitchen utensils. Washington Post Food section readers have come to know her through salsa, salad, taco and casserole recipes: everyday food that has become her mission…”

“Pati Jinich, readily recognizable from her cooking programs on PBS, is also the official chef at Washington, D.C.’s Mexican Cultural Institute–and a very busy wife and mother of three boys. She understands what it means to be able to cook well for your family when time is precious and has put her expertise on the page in Pati’s Mexican Table.

‘Mexican home cooking is beautiful in its simplicity, tremendously convenient, and wholesome,’ she writes, and it’s these qualities that make her cookbook universally appealing, while her energetic and honest writing keep the reader engaged…”

“Growing up in Mexico City, Pati Jinich wanted to be a lot of things: a writer, a philosopher, an academic. ‘In my family, I was the youngest. I was labeled the academic,’ said the woman who did indeed grow up to write, philosophize and intently study various issues in a career as a Latin American public policy analyst.

The one thing Jinich hadn’t banked on was a career in food. But that’s what happened when her life shifted gears from think-tank wonk to Mexican food ambassador as host of the popular public television cooking show ‘Pati’s Mexican Table.’ Chef, cooking teacher, food writer (and mother of three), Jinich has emerged as one of the most passionate and articulate proponents of the simple joys of Mexican home cooking…”

“As a native Mexican, [Pati] drew upon her own food traditions and family memories, which are the focus of her terrific public television cooking show ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ (the first two seasons currently air in repeats at 5 p.m. Wednesdays on OPB-Plus). This collection of recipes from the show emphasizes the sort of home cooking found throughout Mexico, along with plenty of historical anecdotes that illustrate how Mexican cooking has changed over the centuries. Unlike what most people think of as Mexican food, most of these dishes are nuanced and unfamiliar…”

“Pati Jinich, a chef on the ‘Mexican Table’ TV show on the PBS channel, has a very different idea of Mexican food than most people are used to.

‘Everyone knows tacos and burritos but not everyone knows the wholesome, fresh home-style cooking I grew up eating,’ Jinich said. ‘This isn’t greasy or labor-intensive; it’s the traditional cooking I knew’…”
