Mexico: One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless

Hope you're not the odd creten who hasn't heard of the PBS hit series "Mexico - One Plate at a Time" with Chef Rick Bayless

Bayless is HUGE on Oaxaca, and the Yucatán, and Baja, and well, everything Mexico and especially the cuisine of the people

People say all the time how much they love "Mexican Food" but it's not what you find at Taco Cabana

Bayless has two flagship restaurants in Chicago, Frontera Grill and Topolobampo, in addition to his long running PBS television series

His website's dedication to Oaxaca alone I've been studying like a scientist

Here is his clip of a visit to Puerto Escondido that was done in conjuction with the show on Huatulco

Thanks Man! That place is very interesting and located absolutely in the middle of nowhere, by the border of DGO SIN and NAY.

UTM 456804.60 m E, 2554020.93 m N

Jimmex and I should be passing through there on Sunday.

I think Mexico has a long shot at qualifying but will play a special match against New Zealand.
Now, imagine the Kiwis doing the Haka Maori chant and moves in Estadio Azteca?

I believe the PBS version shown in Mexico is subtitled

Everybody loves to eat. Everybody loves the foods of Mexico.

Bayless has figured out how to capture it and present it in a terrific way - but the #1 thing about him is he is a Mexophile first - he loves the people and culture of Mexico more than the food, and he demonstrates great respect.

That may not play well in Telluride, but its one hell of a tune to crank in your earbuds heading out on the cuota after a pot of coffee

That was a mistake not to take the 4 X 4 trail down the mountain. Big bikes with good brakes would do well. Jaxton on his F GS 650 and me on my KLR had a blast on this road. Use your engine to slow you...it's hard on the brakes. It was one of the highlights of my summer. I'm taking the family back in December via auto to see it and we will take one of the jeep tours.

Rick's the man

Trice...where did you get that cool backstage-like Rick Bayless footage? Very cool. My family and I are going to Chicago for the weekend of the 12th of October. (marathon weekend) We plan to eat at Frontera while we are there. Can't wait!

That and everything else Rick Bayless & Mexico One Plate at a Time can be found on or via his website

LINK

His Chicago restaurants are popular so I'd advise checking to see if reservations are recommended for the time you're going to be in town. Especially on marathon weekend.

Stopping here for the night even though I arrived at noon. This place is very charming and beautiful. Durango has some kind of forensics seminar going on that is filling all the hoteles. Biggest pecan trees I've ever seen; must be 200 years old. An oasis. Also a must stop for future trips to DGO.
