The Final Fiesta

Posted by

The 5th and final installment of Rick Bayless’ radio series, Fiesta at Rick’s has come to an end.  But that doesn’t mean that the Fiesta is over!  Throughout the last 5 weeks, Rick has shared many recipes with us.  And if that isn’t enough, you can get ALL of his latest recipes in his new book Fiesta at Rick’s, a New York Times best seller! 

This week on the show we talked with members of the local farming community who work closely with Rick and other chefs to supply fresh and responsibly raised meats and vegetables.  Food like grass fed beef and chickens raised without unnecessary hormones taste better and are healthier for us.  Some of the farmers involved in the effort are Marty Travis , Greg Gunthorp , and Bill Kurtis.  You can find farmers like these near your area too, so that you can be an informed consumer to feed yourself and you family.

See some of the pictures from last night’s show, you can hear the entire Fiesta at Rick's series THIS weekend from noon to 5pm eastern on Martha Stewart Living Radio, Sirius 112 and XM 157!

I couldn’t resist staying for dinner, and indulging in this beautiful bunelo de viento – a crispy rosette-style bunuelo dipped in Xoco's homemade Mexican-style chocolate with white chocolate-tequila crema and drunken Klug Farm peaches and blueberries.
