about this item
Intriguingly simple recipes to “Mex up” everyday meals from the vivacious host of the popular PBS series Pati’s Mexican TableOn her PBS TV series, now in its fifth season, as well as in frequent appearances on shows likeThe Chew, Pati Jinich, a busy mother of three, has shown a flair for making Mexican cooking irresistibly accessible. InMexican Today, she shares easy, generous dishes, both traditional ones and her own new spins. Some are regional recipes she has recovered from the past and updated, like Miners’ Enchiladas with fresh vegetables and cheese or Drunken Rice with Chicken and Chorizo, a specialty of the Yucatán. “Sweaty” Tacos with ripe tomatoes and cheese are so convenient they’re sold on Mexican streets by bicyclists. Her grandmother’s Cornflake Cookies feel just as contemporary now as they did then.
Pati has “Mexed up” other recipes in such family favorites as Tijuana Caesar Salad and Mexican Pizza with Grilled Skirt Steak and Onions. Still other dishes show the evolution of Mexican food north and south of the border, including Mexican Dreamboat Hotdogs and Cal-Mex Fish Tacos with Creamy Slaw. This food will draw everyone together—a family at the end of a working day, a book club, or a neighborhood potluck. Throughout, Pati is an infectious cheerleader, sharing stores of the food, people, and places behind the recipes.
