Her captivating personality and knowledge of Mexican cuisine makes Chef Pati one of KLRN’s most watched programs.” 

Dinner will include a multi-course meal featuring recipes from her cookbook, Mexican Today, a presentation by Chef Pati, and an autographed copy of the cookbook.  

The event is historic as the first KLRN Chef Series event taking place in Laredo. Proceeds benefit KLRN Public Television.
