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 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.
