Rick Bayless?? Wonderful!!!Very exciting!! I admire him greatly! His passion for Mexican cuisine and his knowledge makes it an adventure to try his recipes. I have eaten at Frontera Grill in Chicago and there was not a morsel that was served that wasn't absolutely delicious. I have cooked nearly everything in the "Mexico, one plate at a time" cookbook! (several times) --it has been a good learning experience for me, in part because of his clear, concise direction. I absolutely love the way he introduces an item, whether it be quesadillas, tamales or tacos al carbon--he elaborates then adds what he calls a "traditional benchmark" where he takes you to Mexico through his wonderful descriptions. Ah caramba!!! I think I will be cooking grilled skirt steak tacos with roasted poblano rajas this week!!!!!!
