“Host of the public television series Pati’s Mexican Table, which premiered nationwide in April 2011, cooking teacher, food writer and official Chef of the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC, Patricia Jinich was born and raised in Mexico City. After moving to the States, Pati served as a political analyst and completed a Masters degree in Latin American Studies at Georgetown University, but left her policy work to pursue her lifelong passions: researching, writing about, testing and cooking Mexican food…”

“‘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!

“It’s back to school time, which of course means back to packing lunch. Here we go again. Every parent is pressed for time. Kids aren’t always open to new foods. No one wants to waste time, or money, on food that won’t get eaten.

Understandably, we fall back on the familiar favorites. Peanut butter and jelly, anyone? Parents know the challenge all to well. Everywhere around the world, kids eat. Why not take a cue from other countries’ cuisines, and fill the lunchbox with new and delicious international flavors?…”

“I was born and raised in Mexico City, in a family where every taco happens to be, as my dad boasts, “the best taco you’ve ever had in your entire life.” That is, until you eat the next one.


Living in the US, I am often dismayed at how my home country is portrayed in the media. For some, it’s easy to just write off the entire country as dangerous and riddled with cartel violence. As a former political analyst, I am not in denial about the hurdles my country faces, but the Mexico illustrated in some news reports is certainly not the Mexico I know and love – nor is it the Mexico experienced by the 22.67 million international tourists that visited last year…”

“Growing up in Mexico City, I didn’t know a single person who celebrated Cinco de Mayo, except for the people who lived in the state of Puebla. We didn’t even get the day off! Sure we studied it in school–the unprecedented victory of a small Mexican militia against the large French army in 1862–but it was a short-lived victory, as the French won right back.

Fast forward 150 years to 2012: the French and Spanish are gone; Mexicans proudly celebrate Independence Day every September 16; yet, for reasons few of us can explain, Cinco de Mayo has become the greatest, most joyous, colorful celebration–for Mexicans living abroad. As strange as the nostalgia is, the longer I live abroad, the stronger the impact Cinco de Mayo has within my soul. These words fluff up like soft conchas right out of the oven, getting fluffier, sweeter and more comforting as the years go by…”

“Tossing a healthy dose of bright, sliced radishes atop a pair of fiery red enchiladas, the crispy jacketed Pati Jinich sounds genuinely baffled when she throws her hands in the air after observing her handiwork.

‘How can anyone say Mexican food isn’t healthy?’ she asks.

Jinich, who has tasked herself with spreading the gospel of her homeland’s soulful and nutritious cuisine, has found an open pulpit at Washington, D.C.’s Mexican Cultural Institute, an educational outreach arm of the Mexican Embassy. She launched a series of classes there five years ago that have since evolved into the PBS show ‘Pati’s Mexican Table.’”

“Every few months, my family gets together with a Latin group of friends and their families for a potluck.

This winter it was our turn. As tradition goes, the host brings the main dishes to the table and the others bring the rest. I eagerly announced my plans to share Mexican casseroles, also called cazuelas, budines or pasteles. The Mexicans couldn’t hide their joy — ‘Pati! De veras? Budin Azteca? Cazuela de Tamal?!’ — and quickly thought of other ‘very’ Mexican sides to pair with them. The Argentines and Costa Ricans tried to understand what ‘Mexican casserole’ meant and whether it was supposed to be any good…”
