Rick Bayless rocks! Not only is he a Top Chef Master and owner of Red-O, Frontera, among others, some call him the “best Mexican Chef in the United States”. Frankly I just like him because he loves Mexico so much and speaks so positively about the country, the food, and the culture. (Debería haber mas americanos así, just saying.)
Even President Obama loves him. He asked Rick to be the guest chef for the state dinner they gave in honor of Mexican President Felipe Calderon a few months ago, and everybody said his mole dish was a hit.
If you’re in LA this week, here’s your chance to meet him.
Rick Bayless will be at Macy’s Pasadena and Costa Mesa this week as part of the Macy’s Culinary Council. He’ll do a cooking demo, sign copies of his new cookbook, “Fiesta at Rick’s”, and share samples with the audience.
Admission to each event is $5 and proceeds will benefit local food banks. For Pasadena proceeds benefit Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. In Costa Mesa, proceeds will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
