patricia quintana dies at 72

Patricia Quintana, the chef and author whose work exalted the range and sophistication of Mexican cuisine, died on Monday at her home in Mexico City. She was 72.

She wore a white chef jacket in defiance of a male-dominated culture that didn’t see women as professional chefs.  She celebrated Mexican heritage through her work as a phenomenal chef.  She has inspired many others to do the same.
