Pati Jinich, the host and chef, tastes the regional cuisines in “La Frontera,” a miniseries that premiered on PBS Friday
Pati Jinich is a chef and TV presenter. She posted photos online showing her having fun with the border. Her new mini-mini will premiere on PBS, Friday, October 15. Preview of the program.
“La frontera” is a Mexican-born chef who visited different points along the border between Mexico and America, tasting the delights of their cuisine and reflecting on the richness and harmony of the two cultures.
“For so long I have been studying the border and reading, as well as visiting other sister cities at the border. We made a movie this time. It is amazing to see people open their homes, their families, their hearts. This is remarkable. It is difficult to believe that there are so many myths surrounding the border. It is not just a place where two cultures and two countries meet, but also the place where the third universe opens. People can navigate across different cultures and languages. They enrich one or two countries but also transcend borders,” Patty Ginich said to Jorge Ramos, a reporter for Alponto.
On Facebook, as a detail of the public photo, the chef wrote that she first visited the family business La Colonial Tortilla Factory in El Paso, where “the traditional burritos were strongly influenced by the United States”, and then It’s Juárez, the’Sarita’ burrito stand in Ciudad, who also stops on the classic Yeto menu.
“They all taste delicious. But you must watch #LaFronteraPBS Friday, October 10th. 15. Check out which one I love the most. Jinich said that you can watch the show on PBS at 9pm/8pm CST live.
When Pati Jinich came to make this food perspective documentary a few months ago, one of her allies was a chef from Juarez Óscar Herrera.
Participation in the TV Project was motivated by the desire to show the local characteristics and representative foods.
The owner of Juárez and El Paso restaurant, the chef talked about his experience when sharing views with the host of the show “Patti’s Mexican Table”.
“This happened several months ago. Herrera stated that Pati’s team was searching for me and was planning on making a documentary about the border starting at the border between Texas, Mexico.
It runs approximately two hours and features interviews as well as visits to interesting locations such restaurants, food stalls, and hotels.
This plan is to cross Texas’ border with Mexico. It starts at Juarez and El Paso and ends at the Gulf of Mexico.
“The truth is a very unique experience. We took them to El Paso’s most famous places, and we discussed it.
The chef suggested going to La Colonial tortillería in El Paso, which is a burrito shop in Texas. On top, they added yellow cheese. For this side, visit Sarita traditional burritos Juarez.
“We talk a lot and I bring them along to Yeto’s menu. This is basically how I see the border community’s food scene and how they view it from my perspective.”
Herrera also stressed how surprising it was to see foreigners be surprised by the communities at the border.
“We didn’t realize that we had something very unique. It would surprise anyone who came from overseas to experience it. We live in Siam, and there is a city. “This surprised them when people outside didn’t live,” said the chef.
