EMMY AND JAMES BEARD NOMINATED TV SERIES ‘PATI’S MEXICAN TABLE’ IN THE UK
LONDON, United Kingdom, December 4th, 2017. – “Pati’s Mexican Table,” the hit PBS cooking and travel series from acclaimed chef, author and TV host Pati Jinich, is for the first time available in the UK via Amazon.
Jinich has dedicated her career to showcase Mexico’s diverse and rich culture through her recipes in various cookbooks such as “Mexican Today” and her popular blog where readers can look-up recipes and tips. In each Pati’s Mexican Table´s episode, she ventures into parts not found in guidebooks. She also gets to know the people behind each region’s cuisine, from meeting Mexico’s Top Chef winners, to visiting bakers in a remote town, learning hands on the process for making mezcal, and intimate family meals with renowned chefs.
“It has been incredibly exciting to watch Pati share her love of Mexico with all of our viewers through the eyes of her family as they travel through her native country,” said Karen Fritz, vice president of program development and syndication at WETA Washington, D.C. “
Pati’s Mexican Table has been directed by Dan Connell who, alongside Jinich, helped the series earn multiple Emmy and James Beard award nominations for past seasons, including for “Best Culinary Program” and for “Outstanding TV Host,” as well as an Imagen Award for “Best National Informational Program.” Last year’s season five reached 13.3 million viewers and had 95% carriage in U.S. households in the first run.
In London, on 16th August 2017, Le Cordon Bleu, the leading global network of culinary arts and hospitality management institutes, hosted Pati Jinich for an exclusive evening of Mexican cuisine.
