Catch Rick Bayless Cooking Demo Tonight at Macy's

One of my favorite foodie personalities is Rick Bayless. He just has that calm, easy-going, soothing personality that makes him a pleasure to watch and he's so extremely passionate about what he does. I kind of think of him as the Mr. Rogers of food. Anyway, if you're also a big fan of Mr. Bayless, be sure to stop by Macy's on State Street this evening for a holiday cooking demo at 6 p.m.

Rick Bayless is a member of Macy's Culinary Council, made up of expert chefs from around the country who are dedicated to inspiring people to eat, cook and enjoy food at home. Bayless is a seven-time James Beard Award winner and host of the Daytime Emmy nominated show Mexico: One Plate at a Time.

Bayless is also chef-owner of Chicago restaurants Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, Xoco and most recently, the West Loop’s Leña Brava and Cervecería Cruz Blanca. There's also a Frontera Fresca counter in Macy's food court.

Attendees of the cooking demo will learn tips from Bayless as he shares stories and best kept culinary secrets while serving up some delicious holiday dishes for the audience to try. With any purchase of $35* or more in the Home department, customers will receive a Lime Infused Salt Rimmer and a copy of Chef Bayless’ cookbook More Mexican Everyday which he will sign. Guests will receive a $10 Macy's gift card upon check-in that is good for 11/8 only. Seating is first come, first served. To RSVP, please visit:

*Purchase must be made at Macy's State Street on November 8th, 2018.   **One per customer, while supplies last and time permits.
