Chef Rick Bayless

Most people know chef, restaurateur, and author Rick Bayless from his highly rated show Mexico—One Plate at a Time, now in its seventh season on PBS. Perhaps you’ve read one of his cookbooks: Mexican Everyday was nominated for a James Beard Award in 2006 and Fiesta at Rick’s, his seventh, is currently on the New York Times Best Seller list. But Bayless’ reputation as a world-class chef goes way back. He founded his side-by-side Chicago restaurants—the casual Frontera Grill and the 4-star Topolobampo—in 1987. Frontera Grill won the coveted James Beard Award for ‘Outstanding Restaurant’ in 2007 and inspired a line of award-winning salsas, grilling sauces, and organic chips that is available nationwide.
