Chicago-chef Rick Bayless Tapped to Prepare Next State Dinner for President of Mexico

I'm really never in the Windy City, but  I know Rick Bayless from my mild fascination with chef life and unhealthy addiction to Bravo reality shows--more specifically Top Chef and Top Chef Masters.  Apparently, he runs a stellar Mexican place in Chicago that the Obama's favor and is quite the culinary star. So, it makes sense that he has been selected to prepare the state dinner for President Felipe Calderon of Mexico. On the show(s), he has the most cheerful disposition and seems like he knows his stuff...

According to the New York Times, 
"Officials said no to Mr. Bayless’s request that he be allowed to make two or three long-simmering, complex sauces ahead of time and ship them frozen to the White House where they could be tested. So Mr. Bayless and crew will be coming to Washington two days earlier than planned to begin preparing a 28-ingredient Oaxacan black mole."


If you read the article, it mentions something about "pyramid plating style". I have absolutely no idea what that means. Anybody out there know? Google didn't seem to know either

  5. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I
    had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
    to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
