    What is the theme song to your show? I love your show and the music, but I can’t understand the words. I am new to the study of Spanish language and culture, and I love it, but it is hard to understand the language sometimes.

  • Thank you for making your TV show. It is wonderful.

    You inspired me to buy a tamalera and share the wonderful world of the tamale with my friends. Gracias.

    • Pati Jinich

      You are so nice, Brianna! Thank you so much for watching!! Yes, open up the world of tamales to your friends.

  • I moved to El Paso years ago and love Mexican food so much! Being Jewish too, I loved your show about middle eastern influences the most. Thank you fir this wondrous show!

  • Sylvia


    Love your theme song also but it’s Salsa music and Salsa music is not even Mexican music. How about a cumbia, nortenia, or durengense.

    • Pati

      Haha! Gotcha 😉

    Hi Patti,
    I just wanted to thank you for such a great show. My wife and I watch it whenever we can and use all your great home cooked Mexican food (which we love dearly) as inspiration for our own Mexican and Mexican inspired dishes.

    Feliz concinar. (<–I hope that's correct)

    Muchas Gracias,
    Odie and Suzanne

    • Pati

      Hola Odie and Suzanne, Thank you so much for your message and for watching!! Happy cooking to you, too.

  • Roy Cross

    Hola! I have been watching your show for a couple of weeks now. It is WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much! My family is studying Spanish and now we have some wonderful dishes to add to our learning!

    • Pati

      Hola Roy, So happy you like the show! Thank you for watching!!

  • Roy Cross

    Pati! I just saw the episode with you and your sister! What a WONDERFUL show! You make a great team! It was so much fun to watch you work together and share family recipes and memories! Thank you!

  • Stephanie Knaus


    I came across your show on Create TV and I’ve learned so much from watching you. I also wanted to say that I think you have such a great positive attitude and I love your personality. You make a great teacher.

    Thank you for doing what you do so well.

    • Pati

      Wow! Thank you so much, Stephanie!! Very nice to hear.

  • JB

    Hi Pati, I LOVE your show! And the music during your cooking sessions is amazing – would it be possible to list the names of the various songs played during the episodes – much appreciated and keep cooking those amazing dishes! Buen Provecho – JB.

    • Pati

      Hola JB, Thank you for watching! The theme song is “Dame” by Domingo Siete. The other music is a production mix…

  • MaggieToo

    Thanks so much for all the great info in your shows. My family’s favorites so far have been your Carnitas, and the Michoacan Gazpacho, by far the best fruit salad ever.

    Quick story: I kept listening to your theme song thinking it was saying “Lame tu piloncillo, lame tu chocolate”, etc. When I checked a translation website, it told me that meant “Lick your sugar, lick your chocolate…”, which seemed quite appropriate, but a little creepy when it got to “lick your heart”. Didn’t realize until I read your responses above that it is actually “DAME”, not “lame”. A bit more sensible, but also a bit less poetic!

    If you’re ever looking for show suggestions, I have just one: more tamales!

    • Pati

      Hola Maggie, Too funny about the theme song! I’m laughing out loud. I’m so happy to hear your family is enjoying the recipes. I have a tamales episode this season; did you see it yet?

      • MaggieToo

        No, I haven’t seen it yet, and those Uchepos look intriguing. I don’t think my local station has run that season yet — I would have remembered that Marbled Tres Leches. I’ll be looking forward to all those episodes, and muchas gracias, Pati!

  • Mary Muñoz-Davis

    Pati I have learned so much from you. I am a Texan with a Mestizo flair. As I was not raised around my Latin culture. I knew little or nothing about Mexican cooking other than Crispy Tacos. Because of you this last year I’ve done more cooking more than ever. My grandchildren are so happy about this. So is my husband. I try to expose them to our culture and rich heritage through food.Thank you for being part de mi familia. You have truly inspired me. Warm regards, Mary

    • Pati

      Mary, your lovely message made my day: so happy to hear, thank you!

  • Dan Mullen

    Hi. I find your story and your show very interesting. On a recent episode where we viewed a chef located in a modern market where Patti got her recipe for a different type of mole, the music played during that piece was exciting. Will you please tell me the name of the song and the artist. Keep up the good work. Good luck. Dan Mullen, Philadelphia, PA

    • Pati

      Hola Dan, Thank you so much for your message and for watching! The music is from a production mix.

  • JB

    Hi Pati, Can you give us the name of the Genre that was used for the production mix or perhaps one of the artists this way if we Pandora either that style of music will play for us. Thanks.
