Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The host of a highly popular PBS series, Patiand#8217;s Mexican Table, and a self-described and#8220;overloaded soccer mom with three kids and a powerful blender,and#8221; Pati Jinich has a mission. Sheand#8217;s out to prove that Mexican home cooking is quicker and far easier than most Americans think.

Her dishes are not blanketed with cheese, or heavy and fried, or based on complex sauces. Nor are they necessarily highly spicy. Surprising in their simplicity and freshness, they incorporate produce and grains. Most important, they fit perfectly into an everyday family cooking schedule and use just a handful of ingredients, most of which are already in your pantry. Many are homey specialties that Pati learned from her mother and grandmother, some are creative spins on classics, while others are not well known outside of Mexico.

Dishes like Chicken and#224; la Trash (itand#8217;s delicious!), a one-pot meal that Pati gleaned from a Mexican restaurant cook; Mexican Meatballs with Mint and Chipotle; Sweet and Salty Salmon; and Mexican-Style Pasta can revitalize your daily repertoire. Youand#8217;ll find plenty of vegetarian fare, from Classic Avocado Soup, to Divorced Eggs (with red and green salsa), to Oaxaca-Style Mushroom and Cheese Quesadillas.

Your friends and family will enjoy Tomato and Mozzarella Salad with Pickled Ancho Chile Vinaigrette; Crab Cakes with Jalapeand#241;o Aioli; and Chicken Tinga and#8212; (you can use rotisserie chicken), which makes a tasty filling for tortas and tostadas. Pati also shares exciting dishes for the holidays and other special occasions, including Mexican Thanksgiving Turkey with Chorizo, Pecan, Apple, and Corn Bread Stuffing; Spiral-Cut Beef Tenderloin; and Red Pozole (and#8220;a Mexican party in a bowland#8221;), which she served on her wedding day.Desserts like Triple Orange Mexican Wedding Cookies, Scribble Cookies

(sandwich cookies filled with chocolate), and little Apricot-Lime Glazed Mini Pound Cakes are sophisticated yet simple to make.

Review:

"Valladolid, host of the Food Network's Mexican Made Easy, is a Tijuana native who commuted across the border daily to attend school. She is now a single mom to a 'very impatient' six-year-old, so she understands the dilemma that dinner-preparing moms face nightly ('it's gotta be good, and it's gotta be quick'), offering 100 simplified, flavor-rich, crowd-pleasing recipes of Mexican classics, such as a tortilla soup; roasted chicken tostadas; spiced turkey breast with chocolate pasilla sauce (an easier version of mole sauce); creamy Mexican corn; and Victor's Caesar salad (the Caesar is said to have been invented in Tijuana). The book would feel more authentic without such entries as pasilla Bolognese spaghetti and a Mexican version of macaroni and cheese, but those dishes — along with desserts like chocolate bread pudding and chocolate pecan pie — are sure to appeal to a wide audience, even though they have a little more spice than standard American fare.
