  1. Dear Pati- I’m a huge fan of your show. And Juju! I love the way he jumps right in and tries everything. I can’t wait to see what he does when he grows up. Thank you.

  2. Hello! 🙂 Mrs Pati,
    Thank you for your time & energy in demonstrating such wonderful recipes!
    I just wanted to ask: How many days in advance can this slaw be made ?
    I typically like to serve everything ‘fresh’ but sometimes I have to try to save time
    & if there is something I can make or prepare w/out affecting taste, texture etc.
    I’m ALL eyes & ears 🙂
    Thanks in advance! 😉
