“‘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…”

“Food is a great ‘teacher’ when it comes to learning about culture. Is that how you get people excited about all-things-Mexico?

Indeed! It seems to me that there is no better place to share differences, no more joyous and peaceful way to experience other’s ‘culture’ than at the table. The dish, a recipe, is just the start. It is a delicious and edible lid that opens a world of how a people, a country, a community live: how they grow, buy and sell ingredients, how they cook, serve, interact, share, celebrate; ultimately, how their lives are built and experienced.”

“Es una mujer apasionada de la cocina y la historia, y a quien le gusta difundir lo que sabe. Patricia Jinich empezó hace un año con el programa de televisión Pati’s Mexican Table, que se transmite a nivel nacional en Estados Unidos por la red de televisión píºblica Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), y que incluso llega al sur de Canadá. El éxito en audiencia fue tal –la primera temporada tuvo presencia o cobertura en 94.43% de Estados Unidos y en 6.8 millones de hogares la vieron más de dos veces — que a partir de este mes ha comenzado a transmitirse su segunda temporada.

‘Trato de enseñar todo lo que se puede hacer en la casa, la comida casera que come mos los mexicanos a diario, que es la que no se conoce aquí­ y que ayuda a desmentir mitos…’”

“Con su programa de TV, Pati’s Mexican Table, Patricia Jinich lleva el sabor de la comida mexicana a los hogares norteamericanos.

Calidez, explicaciones muy sencillas acompañadas de historia, y un acento latino –que porta con orgullo–, son las caracterí­sticas con las que muestra la esencia de la culinaria mexicana. Así­ derriba mitos sobre nuestra cocina: que es compleja y difí­cil de hacer; que es fast food, grasosa, y que es picosa y pesada.”

“‘I wanted it to look Mexican, but not in-your-face Mexican,’ Patricia Jinich says of her fabulous Chevy Chase kitchen, with its Jalisco-tile backsplash, hay-colored cabinets, deep-rust walls and judiciously placed pottery.

It’s a fitting backdrop for the Mexican-born Jinich, host of the PBS series Pati’s Mexican Table, which is scheduled to air its second 13-episode season starting Sept. 1…”

“The crew had repeatedly approached the stern-faced owner of La Pasita to try to secure permission to film an episode for season two of Pati’s Mexican Table. But Emilio Contreras Ovando was standing his ground: No way. No one takes photos or films inside’s Puebla’s oldest cantina, named after its housemade, high alcohol, raisin liquor served with a cube of aged cheese.

But Pati Jinich wouldn’t let it go. She and her crew, after all, had invested time and money in …”

What a ride it has been…

From writing the pitch, to finding the extraordinary editor Rux Martin, to recipe re-testing, writing, working with the fabulous team at Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt and having my food photographed by the amazing Penny de los Santos. After what seems to have been an eternity of working so hard and waiting: the book pre-order is up.

I felt goosebumps after I saw it right there, ready to share. Click below: You can see it too!
