Virtual Chef Talk + Cooking Demo with PBS Star Pati Jinich
Nov 14 @ 1:00 pm

Mexican-Jewish family stories + recipes from her new cookbook, “Treasures of the Mexican Table”

In conversation with food writer Adeena Sussman

SUN | Nov 14 | 1PM

Pati Jinich, star of PBS’s “Pati’s Mexican Table,” discusses her new cookbook and her Mexican-Jewish heritage and recipes with food writer Adeena Sussman (“Sababa”) in this virtual chef talk and cooking demo.

For ten seasons, Jinich has cooked her heart out on her James Beard Award-winning, Emmy-nominated TV series. The Mexican-Jewish chef, cooking teacher, food writer, and mom devotes each episode to the evolution of authentic Mexican food and Mexico’s rich history and culture.

For her new cookbook, “Treasures of the Mexican Table,” Jinich shares Mexican-Jewish recipes and discusses ‘what it’s like to be a Yiddishe mama Mexicana,” to quote moderator and food writer Adeena Sussman.

Cooking demo and recipes will be provided.
