“Patricia Jinich teaches regional Mexican cooking at the Mexican Cultural Institute here. But at the Lubavitch Center recently she showed about 70 Jewish women how to cook for Passover.

Some of the women were in long dresses, with their heads covered. Ms. Jinich, 37, had on a Mexican huipil blouse with red and green trim under her chef’s jacket.

    Querida Pati:
    Yo soy la mama de Nathalie y de William y me complace decirte que prepare tu receta de “Chicken with apricot, tamarind and chipotle sauce”, para una cena familiar en Miami, y fue un total exito!!! Es realmente fabuloso. (Uno de los invitados comento que era el pollo mas sabroso que habia comido en su vida…….). Gracias mil y espero que nos veamos de nuevo en nuestro proximo viaje a Washington.
