“In Pati’s Mexican Table, the first cookbook from Pati Jinich, Jinich is not looking for culinary tourists but converts. Host of the public television series of the same name and official chef of the Mexican Cultural Institute based in Washington, DC, Jinich shares her passion for the Mexican home-style cooking she grew up with in Mexico City…”

“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…”

“Pati Jinich didn’t grow up to be a chef, although she comes from a family of accomplished cooks. She dedicated her life to politics until seven years ago when she decided she would celebrate and demystify Mexican recipes ‘without compromising their soul’…”

“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’…”

“‘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…”
