Season 4 of PATI'S MEXICAN TABLE continues its exploration of the simple, approachable, mouth-watering dishes and ingredients that fuel chef and cookbook author Pati Jinich's cuisine.

On "Backyard Picnic," Pati is throwing a picnic for family and friends in her backyard. She’ll make some of her favorite “picnic foods” and serve everyone outside picnic-style. It also happens to be her husband Dany’s birthday, so a big surprise is in store!

About Season 4:

This season, Pati spends four episodes traveling with her family to beautiful San Migel de Allende in the historic Mexican state of Guanajuato. Here, Pati tours a high-tech greenhouse, a tamale factory and one of the oldest self-serve bakeries; visits a small-batch tequila producer and a renowned chocolatier; samples humble street food and the hottest new restaurants; and even takes her sons on a hot-air balloon ride. While on location, she picks up ingredients she will use to prepare that day's meal in her temporary home kitchen.

Throughout, she shares the 'basics' of Mexican cooking — from making homemade corn tortillas to whipping up fresh salsa verde. Back home in Washington D.C., Pati churns out new, family-friendly recipes influenced by her adventures in San Miguel. Highlights include: marbled tres leches cake, big brunch enchiladas, mole de olla, chiles rellenos, crab cake sliders and an entire episode dedicated to one of Mexico's most heralded creations — the tamale.
