Chicago is a veritable mecca of delicious food. We are lucky to have such powerhouses as Stephanie Izard, Takashi Yagihashi, and Rick Bayless in our midst. Chef Bayless and his love for Mexican cuisine can be felt every time you get to indulge in his creations. I’ve been able to do so several times thanks to the Macy’s Culinary Council and you will be able too! Next Wednesday, June 29 at 12 noon, you can join me, Chef Bayless and several other Chicagoans as we enjoy summertime eats that he has perfected. I’m SO crossing my fingers and hoping that guacamole makes an appearance.
I first found Rick Bayless on our local PBS station several years ago through his show Mexico, One Plate at a Time. Because I could actually live off of Mexican food exclusively, as long as avocados are present, I continued watching. It’s not very often that a person not born in Mexico (he was born in Oklahoma by the way) can correctly embody the tastes of the country in an authentic way, and he has SEVERAL awards stating that he can and does.
The last time I was able to view his demonstration at Macy’s he was paired up with Chef Takashi and we had so much fun! I can only imagine how much food will be present for me to enjoy next week! I’ll be sure to include them in upcoming summer celebrations for our houseful too!
So, do you want to join us next week? Here are the details.
