About the Author
Rick Bayless’s most recent cookbooks are Fiesta at Rick’s and Mexican Everyday. With his wife Deann, he owns and operates Chicago’s casual Frontera Grill, the 4-star fine-dining Topolobampo, and XOCO, a LEED-certified quick-serve restaurant.
Deann Groen Bayless has coauthored seven books with her husband Rick Bayless; co-owns and co-operates Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, and XOCO with him; and feels she’s done a pretty good job nurturing along their teenage daughter, Lanie. She is a former president of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs, a national organization that promotes the education and advancement of women in the restaurant industry, and is the administrator of the Frontera Farmer Foundation.
