So this coming weekend Rick Bayless and Eric Ripert  are coming over for dinner. Should I serve fish tacos?

@Teamfat....GOOD fish tacos are a beautiful thing. I never ever tire of them. Lots of colors, flavors, textures and FUN. Una fiesta en la boca!!!!!
Make good drinks! The real deal margaritas with lots of fresh limes, maybe a white sangria. Ole!

Are your tomatoes in yet from your garden?

A fresh pico de gallo, salsa, veggies ... a build your own bar?

Fish, shrimp, chicken, beef, pork ... handmade flour and corn tortillas ... assorted cheeses ...

When's dinner?

Okay, I lied. I doubt chefs of their caliber will EVER enter my home for a meal. But if you know Rick Bayless, you know he knows Mexican. And the people on the planet who know more than Eric Ripart about cooking fish can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

 

I do like fish tacos, though.

I definitely saw the tongue in cheek humor there. I was going to say make beef tacos for Ripert and fish and chips for Bayless. Funny thing is that most chefs I know would be glad to be not working and would be there to enjoy the company and to chow down not critic.

@Cheflayne ....you know that i know that you know that i know it was very tongue in cheek....yes, they would be more than grateful for a night off to kick back,and who doesn't like fish tacos? Well except for the vegans and the allergic to fish people..too sad for them..more for us.
@Teamfat.... make them anyway....one never knows who's gonna show up on your door step!...Now you got me thinking of doing an upscale fish taco dinner special with scottish salmon...hmmmmm...thanks. smile.gif

Thinking about famous folks just wanting to relax and be normal Paul Newman came to mind. You know, the actor.

 

What you may not know is that he was also a sports car guy and serious racer.  He won the 1976 SCCA D Production National Championship, in a Triumph TR6. For you non-car folks, think Michelin stars.

 

Anyway, I never got to meet him at any races, but I heard he was quite an interesting fellow. He would hang out drinking beer, talking racing and cars and stuff with the guys until all hours of the night.  Or until someone wanted to talk about movies. Then he was gone, outta there, good bye!

ps: I saw his winning car last year at Elkhart Lake, a race track in Wisconsin. It is still a strong contender in its class.
