Chef Rick Bayless To Host New Radio Program
On Fiesta at Rick’s, Bayless will take calls from listeners across the country and welcome a wide variety of guests to explore topics such as home cooking, eating responsibly, and throwing the perfect summer party. He will also share tips and recipes for authentic Mexican cuisine from his new cookbook, Fiesta at Rick's: Fabulous Food for Great Times with Friends (W.W. Norton, 2010), offering great ideas on everything from libations and savory nibbles to street food and live-fire grilled meat and fish.
Fiesta at Rick’s will launch July 14 at 7:00 pm ET with a live broadcast event at SIRIUS XM’s New York City studios and will air every Wednesday on Martha Stewart Living® Radio at 7:00 pm ET through August 11. For his debut show, Bayless will be joined in studio by Michael White, executive chef of Convivio in New York City, and three-time Tony-award nominated actress Kelli O’Hara, who recently starred in South Pacific.
Future guests include world-class chef Marcus Samuelsson, co-founder of The Marcus Samuelsson Group, chef/owner of New York City’s forthcoming Red Rooster Harlem restaurant, author of the award-winning New American Table cookbook, and winner of season 2 of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters; and Peter Hoffman, chef/owner of Savoy Restaurant in New York City. Bayless will host three editions of Fiesta at Rick’s from his Chicago home base, including a live broadcast July 28 from his own private backyard book party fiesta celebrating the release of his Fiesta at Rick’s cookbook with special guests including fellow Chicago chef Art Smith. On August 4 and August 11 he will host Fiesta at Rick’s from his award-winning restaurant Frontera Grill (all show times 7:00 – 8:00 pm ET).
Renowned chefs Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert and designer Isaac Mizrahi have also hosted exclusive five-week series on SIRIUS XM’s Martha Stewart Living® Radio.
