Description

Entertaining made easy, with Mexican-inspired recipes and handy tips from the celebrity chef and winner of Bravo's Top Chef Masters.

Whether you're hosting a casual get-together with friends or throwing an outdoor shindig, no one can teach you the art of fiesta like Rick Bayless. With 150 recipes, Bayless offers you the key to unforgettable parties that will have guests clamoring for repeat invitations. There are recipes for small-dish snacking (Mushroom Ceviche, Devilish Shrimp), dynamic cocktails to get the party started (Champagne Margarita, Sizzling Mojito), and Bayless's signature takes on Mexican street food (Grilled Pork Tacos al Pastor, Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas). Live-fire grilled fish and meat dishes like the "Brava" Steak with "Lazy" Salsa will draw friends and family to the glow of open flames. And if you're going to throw a truly epic celebration, you'll need a killer finale like Frontera Grill's Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars or Dark Chocolate-Chile Ice Cream.

Fiesta at Rick's offers 150 diverse preparations organized into easy-to-follow chapters. But it's far more than a collection of recipes. With four complete, can't-miss menus for parties ranging from a Luxury Guacamole Bar Cocktail Party for 12 to a Classic Mexican Mole Fiesta for 24, Bayless has all your friends covered. Each of these parties has a complete game plan, from a thought-out time line with advance shopping and preparation to a fiesta playlist. Whether a first-time entertainer or a seasoned veteran, anyone can learn from the helpful sidebars, which cover topics such as how to shuck oysters, the perfect avocado for guacamole, and the best way to pick out fresh fish for ceviche preparations. Bayless breaks down the timeless building blocks that make up authentic Mexican food, explaining the value of fresh tortillas and providing surprisingly simple instructions for making your own Mexican Fresh Cheese.

Bayless's entertaining blueprint eliminates the guesswork, so you can let your inspiration run free. Companion to seasons six and seven of Rick's Public Television series Mexico -- One Plate at a Time, Fiesta at Rick's is required reading for everyone who loves opening their home to friends and good times.
