Alumna in the News: Pati Jinich
Working with the non-profit Stand Together, Pati Jinich, a renown Mexican chef, has published a new e-book called The Stories of Our Table. The book is a compilation of recipes that “span continents, centuries, and are a delightful reminder that unique recipes can be tasty to everyone and anyone who ventures to try them at home.” Her hope is that the recipes in the book will connect people from distinct places and cultures. The book is free and available for download.
In 2005, before beginning her culinary career, she worked with the Dialogue as a policy analyst. Jinich is a chef, author, and host of Pati’s Mexican Table, a show featuring live cooking demonstrations and tastings to introduce the world to Mexican cuisine. The show has received numerous awards including three James Beard Awards for Best Culinary Television Program in 2020 and 2019 and for Outstanding Personality/TV Host in 2018, as well as three Daytime Emmy nominations, among others.
Jinich is an alumna of the Inter-American Dialogue.
