Chef and Host of Pati’s Mexican Table on PBS
Honoree, Keepers of the American Dream
Pati Jinich is a Mexican chef, author, teacher, mom, and host of PBS’s James Beard and Imagen award-winning series: “Pati’s Mexican Table”. Happily torn between two countries, Pati was born and raised in Mexico City and is now raising her Mexican-American family in the US. Pati is a knowledgeable and relatable interpreter of all things Mexican from cuisine to lifestyle. By way of the kitchen, she helps Latinos stay connected to their heritage while growing meaningful roots in this country. At the same time, she helps everyone benefit from the Latin sazón to enrich their everyday lives. One recipe and story at a time, Pati is swinging a window wide open in two directions: to Mexico’s diverse and rich culture, and to the fascinating evolution of Latinos in America and all they bring to the table.
