Tasting Detroit's Food With Pati Jinich, Scooters Expand Across City, Openings & News

By Daily Detroit

This is your Daily Detroit for October 24, 2018 from the Podcast Detroit studios at the Detroit Shipping Company. If you’re anything like us, then you’re a huge fan of PBS, and you also love food. And if you check both of those boxes, then you’re probably familiar with our guest on today’s podcast. Pati Jinich https://patijinich.com/ is the host of the James Beard Award-winning, Emmy-nominated PBS television series “Pati’s Mexican Table,” which combines travel to explore the cuisine of her native Mexico and how-to guides of her cooking up delicious recipes. She’s also the author of two cookbooks — “Pati’s Mexican Table” from 2013 and “Mexican Today,” which came out in 2016. Jinich tells Sven she is in Detroit all week as part of a series tracing the evolution of Mexican food in the United States. So far during her trip here, she’s sampled Detroit-style pizza at Buddy’s, pastries at Mexicantown Bakery, and she goes deep on Detroit Coneys, with a pretty nuanced take on comparing the competing offerings from Lafayette Coney Island and American Coney Island. She also says Mexican cuisine has never been as big — nor attracted as much interest — as it does now.
