What initially started as a “Fiesta at Rick’s” book release party morphed into a huge joint celebration: ”Fiesta at Rick’s” debut at #9 on the New York Times Best Seller List, AND the first pouring of Marisol, Frontera’s delicious, bright-tasting new draft beer brewed by Goose Island. Boy did I feel lucky to have the people who helped make this book what it is (my wife, my daughter, my long-tome editor, the book’s photographer, close friends and family) all together in my backyard, eating, drinking and dancing till way after the sun went down.

Thanks SO much to the dozens and dozens of people who made such beautiful food from a cryptic 140 character recipe! You’re incredible. It was so hard to choose winners. So I went with simplicity, smile-provoking beauty and mouthwatering punch. And a gentle nudge for this week’s competition: a flash is food photography’s greatest enemy.
