Mexican Today with Pati Jinich

Last Saturday, we welcomed Pati Jinich to our shop to celebrate the publication of her new book, Mexican Today. 

An enthusiastic group gathered around our table to learn about this rich cuisine and its evolution and to enjoy a delicious lunch cooked from the pages of Pati's book.  Pati shared plenty of knowledge about everything from tequila and where it comes from, to the best method for preparing your own corn tortillas. 

We loved learning more about Mexican food last weekend, and are looking forward to cooking from this new book!

Saturday's Lunch Menu:

Black Bean Soup with Masa, Mint and Queso Fresco Dumplings

Avocado, Roasted Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Salad

Shrimp Enchiladas

Chocolate Custard with Blackberry, Mint and Lime Coulis
