The Mexican saying La mejor comida Mexicana es la que se come en la calle y en la casa means "the best Mexican food is the food we eat on the street and at home." Pati Jinich lives in Washington, DC. now but she spent her youth in Mexico City and is headed back there to shoot the next season of her James Beard-nominated PBS series, Pati's Mexican Table. Pati tells us about how her Jewish-Mexican roots informed the recipes in her latest cookbook, Mexican Today: New and Rediscovered Recipes for Contemporary Kitchens. Find her recipe for matzo ball soup with mushrooms and jalapeños on the Good Food blog.
