PRAISE FOR FIESTA AT RICK'S
Rick Bayless is el mejor cocinero! His flavors are so intense and layered that each bite brings tears to your eyes and that’s not just the chili peppers! I love everything about Rick, I’m so happy he shares his knowledge of Mexican cuisine with all of us. He’s inspired many of my friends, every age, size, shape, male, female as well as myself to have more fiestas!
Rick’s recipes are a testament to the seriousness with which he researches his craft, honors the heritage of his inspirations, and approaches his cooking. This new book—part cooking manual, part party planning guide, and part encyclopedia—covers everything from pickled pig’s feet and pozole to guacamole and flank steak, and it does so in a way that leaves me wanting more.

I was lucky enough to attend a fiesta in Rick Bayless’ backyard and fondly remember Rick’s amazing food. He made throwing a party look so effortless. My brother-in-law is a great cook and I cannot wait to share my copy of FIESTA AT RICK’S with him so he can recreate Rick’s magic for me and my family.
