Pati Jinich’s son Juju Jinich is a huge fan of chocolate and never misses a birthday celebration without it. His real name is Julian but has been nicknamed Juju since he is the last born.
A study shows that the middle children are the quietest. This is the same for the Chef’s household. Her 2nd born son and middle child is none other than Sami Jinich.

The oldest of them all is Alan Jinich. Chef Pati Jinich’s Oldest son’s date of birth may be concealed, but with a little bit of digging we found out that he is a young adult at probably 18 or 19 years old.

Meet her parents.
Many at times you may have heard the phrase, Like father like son or mother and daughter. However, for the case of our tamale specialist, it is quite the opposite. Her father was into more fancy things like jewelry. As such he was a part-time jeweler as well as an architect.
With time, he let go of his career and like Pati, chased his dream of opening up a restaurant. In fact, the whole family is all food enthusiasts. Her dad worked on a fonda Fonda that was rich in the Mexican delicacy Comida Corrida. Soon after, he opened up an Argentinian restaurant.
Her mother, on the other hand, was an artist and managed her very own art gallery. It sounds like the ideal family doesn’t it? You couldn’t be any wrong. In a post on Facebook, the chef revealed that she comes from a broken home with both Pati Jinich’s parents divorced. Not many people know this.
