On Stage: Chef Rick Bayless' Dinner Theater 'Cascabel'

Friday, August 15, 2014

Rick Bayless is a prominent American chef, restaurateur, author and host of the PBS series “Mexico: One Plate at a Time.” This summer Bayless has come out of the kitchen and presented his cuisine on-stage as part of his dinner theater “Cascabel.”

“I got tired of going to plays that were about food, in which the audience neither smelled or tasted the food, because I think food can create its own strong emotional reaction in people,” Bayless told Here & Now’s Robin Young.

“Cascabel” is a full theatrical experience with drama, circus performers and of course, food. Bayless discusses his relationship with food and how he wants to share it with others.
