The “buoyant and brainy Mexican cooking authority” (New York Times) and star of the three-time James Beard Award-winning PBS series Pati’s Mexican Table brings together more than 150 iconic dishes that define the country’s cuisine.
For the last decade, Pati Jinich has sought out the culinary treasures of her home country, from birria, to salsa macha, to coyotas, to carne asada, to share Mexico's rich culinary history stretching back thousands of years.
Many of these dishes are local specialties, heirlooms passed down through generations, unknown outside of their original regions. Others have become national sensations. Each recipe is a classic and comes with a story told in Pati's warm, relatable style. And each has been tested in Pati's American kitchen to ensure it is the best of its kind. Together, these essential recipes paint a vivid picture of the richness of Mexico.
“For home cooks looking for recipes that go beyond Tex-Mex, Jinich’s cookbook offers delicious insights about the rich and varied culinary culture of Mexico. Longtime viewers of her PBS cooking show will be drawn in, as will new fans.”
