Rick Bayless, the famous American chef who is known for his modern Mexican cuisine, will be in Los Angeles to sign copies of his new book, "Frontera: Margaritas, Guacamoles and Snacks," recipes from one of his several Chicago restaurants.
Red O on Melrose Avenue, with which Bayless is affiliated (the restaurant's tagline is "Mexican Cuisine by Rick Bayless"), is hosting the signing and will be passing out free guacamole and snacks, if not margaritas. Dinner guests will start their meal with a complimentary bite from the book on Nov. 8 and 9.
Copies of "Frontera: Margaritas, Guacamoles and Snacks" will be available (first come, first served) for $24.95, and Bayless will be at the restaurant to sign purchased books.
