“‘Show me a Mexican who doesn’t love hot dogs!’ author Pati Jinich declared at the launch of her new cookbook, Mexican Today.
Back when Jinich wrote her first book, the Emmy and James Beard Award-winning host of Pati’s Mexican Table stuck to the classics, not veering far from what’s considered traditional. But Mexican food has always been about mixing it up. It’s a hybrid culture that birthed a hybrid cuisine. So in her second cookbook Mexican Today, Jinich explores the exciting possibilities.
‘These recipes break preconceptions of what Mexican food is,’ Jinich told SheKnows. “And you know, we love tacos as much as we love hot dogs. You go to any tiny little town in Mexico, and right next to the taco stand there’s a hot dog stand. And once you eat a hamburger or a hot dog or a pizza Mexican-style, you won’t want to go back. I mean, we have our way of putting a Mexican stamp onto those dishes.”
