Restaurateur. Author. Television personality. Environmental advocate. Philanthropist. Rick Bayless is known for bringing Mexico to America with authenticity. He has won  cooking awards – such as Top Chef masters ( 2009) and a number of James Beard Foundation awards. He is in Who’s Who in American Food and Drink and  if you watch PBS and love Mexican food, then Mexico – One Plate at a Time is a show you don’t want to miss. Every week Rick Bayless demonstrates how to make some of the best and most authentic Mexican dishes.

Mexican Everyday is written with the time sensitivities of modern life in mind. It is a collection of 90 full-flavored recipes—like Green Chile Chicken Tacos, Shrimp Ceviche Salad, Chipotle Steak with Black Beans—that meet three criteria for “everyday” food: 1) most need less than 30 minutes’ involvement; 2) they have the fresh, clean taste of simple, authentic preparations; and 3) they are nutritionally balanced, full-featured meals—no elaborate side dishes required

Mexico One Plate at a Time presents Mexican classical dishes one plate at a time. Take guacamole for instance.  After teaching us the essentials for a perfect, classic guacamole, Rick shows how to spin contemporary interpretations,  Rick’s cuisine is always lively, but rooted in strong traditions with an eye toward  teaching us how to create authentic Mexican dishes in our American kitchens.

For more recipes  check out  Recipes from Rick Bayless on his website.
You can find local broadcast times for his 10th season of Mexico – One Plate at a Time at the PBS website.
