Series Synopsis

The three-time James Beard award-winning and Emmy nominated TV series “Pati’s Mexican Table” brings authentic Mexican flavors, colors, textures and warmth into your home. Pati Jinich is a former policy analyst, focused on Latin American politics and history, turned chef, cookbook author, and TV host whose true passion lies in sharing the tastes of her childhood and culinary adventures in her native country. In each episode, Pati embarks upon an exciting and entertaining journey, where each dish serves as a point of departure into Mexico’s rich history and culture, Pati’s personal experiences, her family life, and her ongoing conversations with cooks in both Mexico and the US.

Season 1 Mexico City

In Season One, Pati introduces us to the Mexican experience. Each episode finds Pati in her home kitchen preparing a series of dishes centered on a singular Mexican trait, for example using versatile ingredients like avocado, tomatillos and vanilla in a variety of ways, or different takes on crowd-pleasing dishes such as quesadillas and wrapped foods, or exploring the foods of the Mexican Revolution and dishes created in convents. In between, she visits street-food vendors, open-air markets, and cultural landmarks in her childhood hometown of Mexico City. As she cooks, she not only shares important cooking skills, techniques and basics about the ingredients, but also personal family stories, traditions and legends behind the food.
