“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!

“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…”
